Capital Grille finally opened in Seattle! The Capital Grille is known for its dry-aged, or hand-cut beef selections. It also has an extensive wine list. The place seats 250 guests and has private dining rooms as well. It is located in the 96 year old Cobb building at 1301 Fourth avenue.
Yes, it's a chain but a high- end chain with upscale food for those who can afford to
pay for a great steak.

Wine Trails of Washington- Wine Book for Lovers..

Yesterday evening I attended the book launch party for Steve Roberts book , Wine Trails of Washington, A guide For Uncorking your Memorable Wine Tour.
The event took place at The Tasting Room, the comfy wine bar located in the post alley of The Pike Place Market.

Roberts signed books, made everyone smile, and just made sure his positive energy naturally rubbed off on the wine loving crowd.

The book(608 pages)gives details of wineries all over Washington with contact numbers, tasting hours, maps and lots of information that will keep your morality high and your wine glass full as you visit the abundance of wineries that Washington has to offer.

I also found out about Vin Du Lac Winery, located in Lake Chelan and the chocolate wine pairing events in February. They are even pairing some unique white chocolate with the wine. Apparently many wineries do chocolate pairing in February, how romantic!
