Easy to sit at the bar (ask for Gabe!) and have dinner if flying solo. Excellent tomato-mozzarella salad, delicious steak oscar and sautéed spinach. Great ambiance of other solo diners. Gabe makes fabulous cocktails.

Within the hallowed walls of the Time-Life Building, and surrounded by some of the city’s most heralded attractions from Broadway to Radio City Music Hall, the imminent arrival of The Capital Grille is creating quite a stir of its own. Especially anticipated are our legendary dry-aged steaks, fresh seafood offerings, and a widely heralded collection of over 7,000 bottles of wine. All presented with unparalleled service in an atmosphere of relaxed elegance that serves as a respite to the frenetic pace of the streets outside.
