Out on Top: The Capital Grille Opens

As if shopping at South Coast Plaza couldn’t get any better, you do welcome every new addition to the super center, whether it’s a new spot to wrangle some couture or a place where you can rest your tired stems and take in a few drinks. Sitting pretty above just-opened Seasons52, the Capital Grille is open and ready to serve up their signature specialties right alongside your favorite shopping spots.

Serving up aged steaks and seafood in high style, the restaurant is a perfect fit at South Coast Plaza, where shoppers browse stores like Louis Vuitton (just steps from the newly-opened restaurant), Chanel and more. And like there’s a fine art to the clothes and accessories, the Capital Grille promises similar technique with their famed aged steaks (try the classic steak au poivre) and seafood (king salmon with tomato fennel relish is one of the chef’s top picks). The classics are all covered on the menu, whether you want surf or turf, but there’s some new twists on the list, too. Try Wagyu beef carpaccio or porcini rubbed Delmonico steak if you’re daring. There’s no reason to skip anything, because the menu’s got enough to keep you coming back again and again.

Elegant and understated, the restaurant is sure to be attracting everyone from the theatre crowd to the shopping-weary (not to mention celebs and the guild-givers by the dozen). Featuring an extensive wine list and a sleek ambiance that’ll have you sitting pretty long after your meal, the Capital Grille is sure to be another jewel on South Coast Plaza’s dining crown.

The Capital Grille is located at 3333 Bristol St. at South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa. 714.432.1140
