The Capital Grille Orlando – Winter Lunch Plates

0 1892

The Capital Grille is a fine dining restaurant here in Orlando known for its wonderful selection of steaks and great service. Something that is not well known however is that you can get a relatively great lunch at The Capital Grille for a great price as well.

The Capital Grille recently changed up their lunch “plates” menu where you can choose 3 items from a list of soups, salads, entrees, and sides for $18 for lunch. The items often change from season to season with various items switching in and out. The Lobster Roll and Mini Tenderloins seem to be a crowd favorite as it has appeared on the list the past few seasons, as are the truffle fries.

The Capital Grille’s Winter “Plates” menu recently debuted these three new selections:

– Roasted Pepper Soup

– Roasted Root Vegetables

– Wagyu Cheeseburger with Fried Egg with Crisp Onions

The spicy, hearty Roasted Pepper soup consists of red peppers, celery, onion, parsnip, carrots, chicken broth and cream and is sure to warm you up on those cold winter days (of which we have been lacking much this season quite honestly).

The root vegetables sides are made of roasted celery, parsnip, and carrots which are in their peak in the winter season. They were good but not my favorite. I guess I am not a big fan of vegetables in general.

Something I was a big fan of was the wagyu cheeseburger. The Wagyu Cheeseburger with Fried Egg with Crisp onions was a wonderful burger, made with Wagyu, the American version of Kobe beef, that has been ground and seasoned and cooked to the temperature of your liking. The havarty cheese and the fried egg still runny on top and the crunchy crisp onions all make for a great contrast in textures and accentuating the taste for this burger.

Check it out at the Capital Grille in Orlando on International Drive soon before the menu changes up again!
