We stopped by this place after a night at the movies. CC Grill is a very popular place for Rio goers. Probably the only 'upscale' restaurant there. Usually, there's a substantial wait to get seated, but around an hour and a half before closing everything slows down and you can be seated fast.
We sat at the bar and were taken care by a great bartender there. Signature cocktails are $8-9 and we particularly enjoyed "Summer Tea" and "D.C. Tea" - their variations of LIIT.
Their food was good. I cannot say that it was excellent, because each of our dishes came out very bland. By that I mean total lack of spices. I don't know whether it's their "thing", but every one I saw were using salt&pepper shakers. While my rack of ribs' blandness could be offset by a bbq sauce on a side, my gf's catch-of-the-day was nothing to write home about in terms of taste. That's too bad because the texture and sides were just perfect. So, beware when you order. I will definitely go there again, but if the food comes out bland like that, I will definitely ask to speak to a manager. Those things were $26 a pop and lack of right spices almost ruins the dish.
