Capriccio Grill

Area: Memphis, TN

Located in the Peabody Hotel, this Italian steakhouse offers a fine dining experience without the words "foie gras," "sweetbreads," and "beurre blanc" -- meaning simply that while Memphis does have some very upscale restaurants, we find the menus to be overly rich or extremely pricey. Capriccio offers more balance and is still elegant. The open kitchen turns out a variety of seafood, pasta, and steaks from the wood-fired oven. Attractive wood floors, light walls, handsome chairs and dark woods create a contemporary and stylish setting.
Lighter lunch fare includes entrée salads (with choice of grilled steak, chicken or shrimp), the chicken breast or veggie paninis, garden burger, the custom pasta accompanied by choice from the salad bar, and the daily fresh fish. Steamed asparagus and seasonal veggies can be ordered a la carte. Other lunch items include filet mignon, veal scaloppini, herb roasted free-range chicken and gourmet pizzas. Dinner is more upscale and begins with starters such as shrimp cocktail, carpaccio, crab cakes and calamari. Starter salads, including a baby spinach with pancetta and hard boiled egg, a linguine with seared shrimp in a light sauce, as well as the daily fish specials and the herb roasted chicken are potential sensible dinner choices. The pizzas, a number of heartier pastas and of course steaks and chops round out the dinner menu.
