One of Fort Worth's newest restaurants is putting on the biggest show for Restaurant Week.
The Florida-based Capital Grille prime steakhouse chain has joined the annual charity restaurant promotion in a big way, offering $25 lunches and $35 dinners through Sept. 2 with several menu choices and a willingness to substitute comparable items.
Capital Grille is the new kid on the "beef block," next door to Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse and across from Ruth's Chris Steak House. From the beginning, Capital made an impression with its daily lunch menu and must-try signature cheeseburger.
If you think the idea of a $25 cheeseburger lunch sounds far-fetched, try Capital's.
It's a fistful of chopped sirloin with just a hint of sweet onion ground into the beef, plus bacon and cheese. The lunch choices also include a dry-aged sirloin salad, salmon or a chicken Caesar, with a soup or side salad and desserts including flourless espresso cake.
As with all sales during the three-week Restaurant Week promotion, the tab includes a $5 gift ($7 at dinner) to the Lena Pope Home children's agency in Fort Worth.
Capital's dinner menu includes a choice of a chicken breast, Parmesan-herb beef, a Kona-crusted sirloin (that has changed on different nights) or salmon, plus sides, soup or salad and a choice of desserts that also includes the Grille's own ice cream.
Capital Grille is open weekdays only for lunch and nightly for dinner; 800 Main St., 817-348-9200, thecapitalgrille.com.
In Arlington, the Cityhouse restaurant inside the Sheraton Arlington is also serving the $25 Restaurant Week lunch through Sept. 2, along with the dinner special.
Cityhouse's lunch menu offers chicken-fried steak, shrimp with artichoke-red-pepper-chipotle sauce or artichoke-asparagus veggie pasta, plus salad and a choice of desserts.
The dinner menu also offers tortilla soup, a flatiron steak with green peppercorn sauce and a choice of eight sides including tempura onion rings; serving lunch and dinner at 1500 Convention Center Drive, 817-261-8200, sheratonarlingtonhotel.com.
Other restaurants serving the specials through Sept. 2 include Del Frisco's, Grace, Mercury Chop House, Silver Fox and Texas de Brazil in Fort Worth; Cacharel and The Melting Pot in Arlington; Ferrari's and Silver Fox in Grapevine; Kirby's and Truluck's in Southlake; and The Wild Mushroom steakhouse in Weatherford.
