The Capital Grille - New Additions to Plates Menu

Shrimp and Piquillo Peppers with Crisp Bomba Rice with grilled spring vegetables on the side.

I was recently invited to sample The Capital Grille's new Spring Plates Menu. The new additions feature asparagus soup (hot), fresh spring vegetables and a tasty shrimp and rice dish - the perfect light lunch for spring. The asparagus soup (below) was particularly tasty and the "Bomba" rice served with the lightly spiced shrimp reminded me of risotto.

The New England clam chowder, a long time offering on the Plates menu, is another item I had not tried previously. The chowder was creamy and full of clams and potatoes as it should be. The Plates menu at The Capital Grille continues to be an affordable means of enjoying the upscale atmosphere and delightful view at Atlanta's Buckhead location.

Delicious asparagus soup.

I can't seem to find a decent Lobster Roll in Charlotte (NC) anywhere. If you know of a place, please let me know =D
