The Capital Burger – DC
A new spinoff of the Capital Grille brand, the Capital Burger is poised to take over the gourmet burger market. A decidedly more casual atmosphere from their steakhouses, the Darden Restaurant Group is focusing on attracting a younger demographic that is in search of the luxurious experience that Capital Grilles have become known, but with a more relaxed atmosphere and a lower price point. This particular location, the first of many to roll out across the country in the next few years, is located across from the convention center in Washington, DC. The warm wood tones and leather coupled with the exposed brick give an upscale feel to the space. A slat ceiling helps define the rich marble bar.
