Philly Restaurant Week - a report

We had an excellent Restaurant Week dinner at Capital Grille.

Lately I've been very careful about where to go during this crazy time.
Steak houses often seem to be the best bet.

The menu at Capital Grille was a good one, and included two kinds of steak: 8 oz. filet and 10 oz. sirloin. Both were top notch, and done as requested. (I'm a filet person; my husband prefers the tastier sirloin.)

The delicious sides, creamed spinach and "Sam's mashed potatoes" were served in generous portions. I usually find mashed potatoes boring, but these were great.

The appetizer choices were also good; I enjoyed a perfect Caesar salad, with anchovies as requested. Dessert choices included their espresso chocolate cake, creme brulee, homamade ice cream and sorbet.

Service couldn't have been better. Although the restaurant was filled to overflowing, the noise level was acceptable.

Chowhounds, please report about your Restaurant Week experiences. This is how we know where to go next time - and where to avoid.
