The Capital Grill: Tender Salmon & Steak

It is entirely my own fault, but OC Restaruant Week is really going to be the death of my healthy living resolution. With so many great deals, I really neglected my stove this past week. One of my favorite restaurants is The Capitol Grill for the lobster salad. With the restaurant week deals, I had the opportunity to try something new. I adore clam chowder.
Grilled dry aged sirloin with arugula salad with little cubes of mozzarella cheese.  I didn't know balsamic vinegar can be so good with arugula.
Normally I don't like salmon, but this is fabulous. It was tender and flavorful. It is lightly glazed with citrus dressing. I suspect orange juice, a little dash of sugar and lemon are what makes this so tasty.
Cream brulee is really my all time favorite dessert. I love the sugar crust on top. Tart berries, with slightly bitter sugar crust are the perfect combo for this cream dessert.
Need I say more? Flourless chocolate cake. I am so chocolate out this week..... Do you have restaurant weeks in your local areas? And do you try out new places or take an advantage of old favorites?
