The Capital Grille was founded by Edward P. Ned Grace in 1990 when he opened the first location in Providence, Rhode Island. This upscale restaurant was quite a surprise at that time because it was not fitting in the run-down surroundings of the downtown Providence area. Also, the economy was going through a slight recession during that period. However, time has proven that Mr. Grace’s dream and vision were worth all the effort.
By 1996 new locations were opened in Boston and Washington D.C., and in 1997 another four restaurants were also opened. Nowadays you can find at least one The Capital Grille restaurant in various states of America, including Washington, Arizona, Wisconsin, Colorado, Virginia, Florida, Tennessee, Illinois, Rhode Island, Georgia, New Jersey, Maryland, New York, Michigan, Ohio, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Indiana, North Carolina, Minnesota, District of Columbia, Missouri, Massachusetts, Nevada, California, and Texas.
The Capital Grille chain was sold to Longhorn Steak, Inc. and in 2007 was purchased by Darden Restaurants. Today it operates under the Specialty Restaurant Group division of Darden Restaurants company.
Over time, The Capital Grille has got many awards such as the Certification of Recognition, 2012 Washington Wine; the Best Plate, 2012, Uncorked; the 2012 Traveler’s Choice Award, TripAdvisor; the Best of Award Excellence, 2010 and 2012, Wine Spectator and many more.
