2) The Capital Grille—arguably the most upscale of upscale American steakhouses. And with locations in 20 states and the District of Columbia, it’s also one of the most expansive. Pittsburgh’s location is special for a myriad of reasons: Its downtown setting. The opulent marquee over Fifth Avenue. All steaks dry-age for more than 18 days before in-house butchers hand-carve them to perfection. Fresh seafood and a huge wine selection are also popular as is the restaurant’s African mahogany interior. The Capital Grille also offers private dining, valet parking, and a lounge.
