I'm back from holidays and back into my old addiction of meal deal vouchers. Some habits die hard, but I'm trying to cut back in the effort of saving some moolah in order to afford more holidays.
Capital Grill is located at street level of the Gateway Building on Macquaire Place (right next door to The Basement). There is a huge outdoor bar area, and downstairs dining area as well as plush looking upstairs mezzanine. The whole place is moodily lit so apologies for the less than stellar photos. I imagine this place is quite busy during lunchtimes and the bar no doubt does a roaring trade on Friday nights when local office workers are celebrating TGIF!
Our voucher included a bottle of wine so Miss M, the wine expert at our table, chooses a red. It's nice, tastes like red wine so I'm happy.
For entree I decide on the Sydney Rock Oysters with a Citrus Granita - really lovely. The oysters were plump and briny, first class. Miss M chose the Asparagus with Poached Egg and Parmesan which looked so simple but I assured it tasted wonderful.
Great minds think alike and so do great tummies. Miss M and I were both taken by the beautiful Ocean Trout with Prawn and Mussel Bisque. This was a really nice dish - the fish was wonderful, a firm flesh that was swimming in a bisque so moreish I had to ask for more bread into to wipe the plate clean.
Dinner is not dinner without dessert and we decided to share a Creme Brulee. Alas, it was much too dark for my camera to even take a picture so there's nothing to see here...move along! It was pretty tasty though - you'll just have to take my word for it.
