While the rest of America was busy celebrating our great US Presidents of yore, the LA Yelp Community tipped their top hats to the most OG of yelpers, our mighty fine Gold Badgers! These devoted handful of stellar Elites have been contributing content, mentoring newbs, and raising the bar for 5+ plus consecutive years and it was fine time they had their moment of glory, and The Capital Grille definitely showed them the VIP treatment.
Guests grubbed on well-executed tray passed apps of tenderloin sliders, lobster rolls, truffle parmesean fries, tomato bisque, and freshly-sliced steak strips. And the star of the afternoon was the Yelp ice sculpture housing sizable shrimps with cocktail sauce! The staff did a phenomenal job of making sure no one went home hungry. They also featured two signature cocktails, The Bohemian (aka, "summer in a glass"), a refreshing champagne cocktail, and Stoli Doli, Dole pineapple-infused vodka, in addition to two top tier beers, Chimay and Delirium.
The Capital Grille went the extra mile by offering complimentary valet, taking guests on a tour of the restaurant and wine locker, showcasing Exceutive Chef Ben's talents with a live "Meat 101" demonstration, and providing all guests with the utlimate gift bag that included a Porcini steak rub, chocolate truffles, and an invitation for 2 to return to try their new lunch "Plates" menu. Hazow! The terrace was the perfect setting for the sophisticated gathering and thanks to Unboxed Images we can remember the time fondly all year long with the set of pictures on the Yelp LA Flickr page.
