What to Eat at Capitol City, Previewing Tonight in Cahuenga Corridor

By

The Cahuenga Corridor has a massive new sports bar called Capitol City, currently in nightly previews and opening for all next weekend. Big Wangs it is not. Capitol is more a lounge with junior agents in mind, A-types with sports bar leanings who need their big screens plasma and their bar chairs sheathed in designer fabric. Curtis Nysmith's reworking of the Goa space includes some cool touches: six separated zones to juke leering jocks in, wireless speakers installed at every table for watching games, private cabanas, and a big menu of grub including Sicilian meatball sliders, pulled pork sandwiches, thin crust pizza, ribs, burgers, and steaks. We don't know what "New York Street Tacos" refer to on the menu, but maybe just the cut of beef. Especially helping pull this sports bar away from fratty Westwood vibes and into Hollywood flare are fresh fruit house cocktails and technology that keeps beer chilled at 31 degrees in a distinct pub. The menu is designed by chef Shad Davis, formerly of The Belmont, Stone Fire Pizza, and long-gone Rome Italian Cucina, and we have it here for your consideration:
