A travel journal

Quote: More than just "touristy" desitinations, there are other activities that take you off the beaten track - just a little.
Restaurant | "The Capitol Grille"
Let me just say that I am now spoiled forever for good steak and the fixin's. When you walk in, you can see the many cuts of steak that they serve curing right there on the premises. If that makes the difference, everyone should start curing their own meat! When my filet mignon arrived, I could cut it with a fork. It was so juicy and tender that I may never be able to eat steak again unless I go back. We split an order of mashed potatoes between us (most of their sides serve 2), and they were so creamy it was unbelievable. My friend ordered the salmon, which she also found to be incredible.
The decor is very fancy-schmancy, but not too overwhelming. It's a popular place among the politicos after work, and you can occasionally have a senator-sighting. The service was impeccable. So much so, that if you set something down, make sure you watch it, or they may take it from you! Our glasses were always full, and the waiter was at our beck and call.
It was nice to treat ourselves to such a great dinner.
