Setting

Hidden away amongst the bustle of Empire Tower, The Capital is the first steakhouse and bar under the Water Library portfolio. Enjoy excellent grills, serious drinks and outstanding service in a smart modern setting.

Food

Begin with a classic starter of mushroom cream soup topped with crisp homemade croutons. Each scrumptious spoonful highlights the delicate aroma of mushrooms. Perfectly pan-seared foie gras served with slightly spicy pineapple chutney and black peppercorn jus is also a good option for opening. For seafood fans, highly recommended is pasta aglio e olio with lobster. Flavourful with just the right amount of spiciness, the dish is well complemented by sweet and plump lobster meat. To share, order the succulent Australian wagyu flank steak with luscious red wine jus and buttery mashed potatoes. End with a warm and decadent platter of fudge brownie served with lovely vanilla ice cream.
