As part of the Rookwood Exchange development in Norwood, Ohio, Darden Restaurants has constructed a new 9,635 sq. ft. Capital Grille, a fine-dining establishment known for its dry-aged steaks, fresh seafood, award-winning wine list and personalized, professional service in an atmosphere of relaxed elegance. Routinely recognized by Zagat, the brand has also received the American Culinary Federation’s “Achievement of Excellence Award” and was named one of the top 50 American restaurants in Open Table’s Diners’ Choice Awards. In addition, The Capital Grille has won an unprecedented number of “Best of Awards of Excellence” from Wine Spectator magazine and offers more than 350 New and Old World wine selections, including a Captain’s List of some of the world’s most highly allocated and sought-after wines.

Cardinal is working closely with the developer, Darden Restaurants and chief architect, JKR Partners LLC, to ensure that the project meets their stringent standards.
