Back by popular demand, the Summer “Plates” menu at The Capital Grille on International Drive marks the return of the Wagyu Cheeseburger with Fried Egg and Crisp Onions – served on a buttery Brioche bun that pulls the egg, onion, cheese and Wagyu together for a truly delicious burger experience.  Another notable lunch entrée is a brand new dish, full of rich and appealing flavors – Seared Sea Scallops with Sweet and Sour Tomatoes.

New Summer “Plates” menu side items also include Carrot Ginger Soup and Tomato and Watermelon Salad with Feta Cheese.  Guests can customize their lunch, choosing now from ten “Plates” offerings – soup or salad, lunch entrée and a side – all for $18.

“The new Summer “Plates” lunch menu was designed to bring back some of our guests’ favorite items and introduce other, new selections for the season,” notes Executive Chef Matthew Price.

“Carrots contain plenty of natural sugars in the beginning of the season.  Combining them with ginger in our new Carrot Ginger Soup creates a depth of flavor and vibrant color, well-suited for summer.  We are also pleased to offer a new luxury addition to our menu, the Seared Sea Scallops with Sweet and Sour Tomatoes, served with a unique Israeli cous cous.”

The Most Highly Anticipated Wine Experience of the Summer
Returns to The Capital Grille
The Generous Pour Wine Event to Launch July 9

Orlando, FL ( June 26, 2012) – Imagine having the freedom to enjoy nine world-class and limited-vintage varietals, hand-selected by a Master Sommelier, all while savoring signature appetizers, dry-aged steaks, fresh seafood and house-made desserts. Make that dream a reality by unleashing your inner sommelier this summer for The Generous Pour Wine Event – just $25 per person at dinner from July 9 to September 2.

The Generous Pour Wine Event offers guests an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy generous pours of as many of the featured wines as they choose and the event exemplifies the expert, personalized service that The Capital Grille is known for. Guests will be guided through the experience, with suggested pairings and wine tasting notes for each course ordered.

Each wine was chosen from unique vineyards around the world by The Capital Grille’s Master Sommelier, George Miliotes, one of only 186 in the world. “I selected the wines for the Generous Pour Wine Event, relying on favorites from unique vineyards that I enjoy in my own personal cellar.” Allowing guests to experience the wine paired with food, tasting notes and expert guidance from our servers, adds depth to the experience that a traditional tasting event would not provide. The best way to learn about wine is to drink it!”

The Generous Pour Wine Event introduces guests to some of the season’s newest wine trends, while also offering hard-to-find varietals and known favorites. Highlights from this summer’s signature collection of choice whites and reds are:

· Conn Creek Anthology, Cabernet, 2007 – The finest vintage of the last 50 years for Cabernet in Napa, this robust blend of Bordeaux grapes from 13 of the region’s top vineyards is Conn Creek’s crowning jewel. A rich and creamy wine to complement dry aged steak.

· Ferrari-Carano Mountain Reserve, Cabernet, 2008 – The Capital Grille is proud to be hosting the exclusive debut of Mountain Reserve from Ferrari-Carano. With a mixture of aromas and a long, dry finish, this bold Alexander Valley Cabernet is the perfect accompaniment for Kona Crusted Dry Age Sirloin.

· Sim?i?, Rebula, 2008/09 – Available exclusively at The Capital Grille, this wine, also known as “Orange Wine,” is a 1,000 year-old style of wine production making a comeback. Highly aromatic, it is an ideal companion for appetizers and light fish dishes.

· Villa Mt. Eden Grand Reserve, Pinot Noir, 2007 – One of Master Sommelier George Miliotes personal favorites, this silky and smooth wine, boasting flavors of strawberry, cherry, and toffee, pairs beautifully with Cedar Planked Salmon with Tomato Fennel Relish.
