365 Things To Do In Costa Mesa – Capital Grille – Day 96

Costa Mesa Restaurants – A Swanky New One Comes to Town

Capital Grille is having it’s grand opening at South Coast Plaza Monday, October 18, 2010. It’s a classy, pricey restaurant serving up juicy steaks and delicious seafood. Capital Grille is an East Coast steakhouse that has decided to try out the West Coast (like I did – so I’m sure it will stay!)

Interestingly, the steakhouse has made it a mission to appeal to women by designing cool, colorful bathrooms, superb service, and tasty cocktails. Yes, these are key items to woo us women, do you agree?


While quality steak and seafood don’t come cheap ($28-$44), side dishes range from $10-$14 and lunch ranges from $14-$30 and comes with a side. There’s even a menu for kids.

Happy Hour

You may want to try out Happy Hour. It goes from 5-6:30pm and I read that the chef will provide complimentary bar menu items that differ by the night. That sounds yummy.

Warning – no beach attire please!

If you go, please share your experience and don’t forget your wallet – you’ll need to do dishes for a long time to cover the meal here but it should be worth it!
