The train may have left the station, but you don't have to miss out on the most extraordinary steak around. Join us in Union Station for dry aged steak that The Providence Journal lauds as having, “only gotten better with time.” We’re just one block away from the RI Convention Center and Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Conveniently, we’re also just the spot Rhode Island Monthly says is “Best Restaurant to Impress.”

Its been months now, but I still have not had a steak that quite ranks with the fillet I was served at Providence's Capital Grill. We also had a "pesco-vegetarian" with us. She adored her fish entree. All the sides that were served were outstanding.

Mark Phillips is an amazing wine steward. He will be able to assist you in your choice of Champagne. Note that they have a kiosk of wines with hundreds of bottles to choose from. ENJOY

I would suggest going to the Hill if on a Friday or Saturday night. Go to Romas. If during the week go to Rosalina downtown restaurant. Both have excellent selections
