You may have thought you know how to celebrate a Sunday Funday, but your day's celebration simply couldn't compare to Sunday's Elite event at The Capital Grille in Vegas. In celebration of their Generous Pour Summer Wine Event, the renowned steakhouse invited Elites out to enjoy bottomless wines and an array of delectable eats from savory to sweet. Of course, Elites were more than happy to oblige.
While perched above the Strip, Yelpers sipped from wine stations with selections featured during Generous Pour: Cheateau Du Pin, Bordeaux; Lunetta Rose, Sparkling Wine; Simcic, Rebula; Gary Farrell, Chardonnay; Conn Creek, Anthology, Cabernet Sauvignon; Ferrari-Carano, Mountain Reserve, Cabernet Sauvignon; Falesco, Assisi Rosso, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese; and Villa Mt. Eden, Grand Reserve, Pinot Noir. At ever stop, highly-knowledgeable and personable staff made sure to educate the revelers on the finer points of the wine. Mindy K notes quite accurately, "The star of the event was the wine!"
And, then there was the food: Sirloin Crostini with Balsamic Onions and Roquefort cheese, Tuna Tartar on a fresh slice of cucumber, Steak Tartar on a homemade crostini, Smoked Salmon on a pita chip, Miniature lobster and crab cakes; and for dessert a Mini Cheesecake tart and Mini Flourless espresso tart! Monica M reminisces, "I especially enjoyed the lobster crabcakes and could have easily eaten them all day. My hubby probably would have eaten a troft of the roasted tomatoes if I'd let him."
As Heather H summarizes: "I am a huge fan of the venue, because Capital Grille has amazing food and service and dang what a view. Add in free, generously poured wine (we aren't talking Franzia boxed wine either), really nice, knowledgable servers and some of they best appetizers, and this event hit it out of the park." Be sure to peruse the gorgeous pictures from Anthony M on Flickr, and read all of the sweet, savory and aromatic details in the 5-star reviews!
Until next time, in vino veritas!
