Celebrating a birthday. Other than the seafood appetizer, I can't remember what it was named but it cost $125, the food was good. The seafood tasted blah...frozen, thawed, refreeze, thawed then prepared.

The Avenue of the Arts is the perfect avenue to dry aged steaks, too. Philadelphia Magazine declared The Capital Grille “a carnivore’s dream.” Top off your fabulous meal with dreamy Chocolate Espresso Cake or Crème Brulée. Then stroll it off on your way to Kimmel Center or the theatre.
