Capitol Grille

50 N. 3rd St. Columbus, OH 43215 (614) 228-5050

It kind of looks like you should be a little fancy to go into the Capitol Grille, but all you really need is to be presentable especially at lunch. In fact, if you're downtown, you ought to try it. They've got a fresh pasta bar every day, free wireless Internet, a full bar and some tasty and affordable sandwiches and whatnot. The Edamame Hummus ($7.00) is nuts. It's all creamy and garlicky and when you put it on lavash with some sweet, roasted vegetables or salty Kalamatas, you start thinking about getting another order. Think about it for a while before you do though, because you could always get the Ahi Tuna Club instead. What's also tempting is their calamari, which consists of steak instead of rings and tentacles, served with basil aioli. Mull it over while you check your e-mail.
