So what if the steaks, chops and seafood at this Atlanta-based chain restaurant are among the most expensive la carte dishes in the city? High prices are all part of the allure for the power brokers and high rollers who find more glamour in its faux 19th-century ambience than in Kansas Citys real historic steakhouses. There are reasons for Capital Grilles popularity, though. The service is impeccable, the portions are gigantic (sharing a dinner is an economical alternative to, say, taking out a second mortgage) and chef Ray Comiskys kitchen is particularly masterful with lamb, Delmonico steaks and veal chops. The noisy room isnt the best choice for intimate dining, but for a theatrical experience, the place is well worth the steep admission price — Charles Ferruzza
