The Capital Burger joins Washington’s exciting restaurant scene this March, opening in Mount Vernon Square.
The 150-seat restaurant (and shaded patio) will offer a menu of specialty and classic burgers paired with a world-class wine program in a modern, comfortable dining room, convenient to the Shaw neighborhood and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The Capital Burger will provide Washington diners a familiar, elevated service and a keen sense of hospitality – an extension of its legendary sister restaurant, The Capital Grille on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Options range from a distinctive classic cheeseburger with elevated toppings, to memorable combinations like blue cheese and truffle, or French-onion with Wisconsin Grand Cru Gruyère and shallot aioli. Every dining experience starts with a complimentary Mason jar of house-made pickles, and guests can expect fries hand-cut daily and dusted with sea salt or a Mixed Baby Greens Salad to accompany. While luxury burgers are the focus, the restaurant also features other appealing options like a Southern-Style Fried Chicken Sandwich with a spicy honey, and a Maine Lobster Roll made with a ¼ lb. of chilled lobster.
Wine, an essential part of the luxury experience, is central to The Capital Burger’s bar program. The diverse wine list includes exceptional labels appropriate for any occasion. Highly sought-after vintages will be available as part of a Rarely Offered by the Glass list, alongside an array of varietals handpicked to enjoy with an extraordinary burger. To create a perfect pairing for any taste, The Capital Burger will also proudly pour local beers from DC Brau, Port City, and Right Proper alongside perennial favorites, and seasonally inspired cocktails.
An extensive Happy Hour will be available seven days a week from 3:00pm to 6:30pm.
The Capital Burger. Mount Vernon Square. 1005 7th Street NW Washington, DC. (202) 638-0414.
