Yelp Detroit's Generous Pour Elite Event At The Capital Grille!

Posted by Annette

Last week, Detroit Elite Yelpers were treated to a magnificently swanky Sunday at The Capital Grille in Troy. The Capital Grille had us in to celebrate the launch of their Generous Pour event—a special celebration of wine where George Miliotes, one of the world's few Master Sommeliers, picked 9 of his favorites from around the world to showcase at the Capital Grille through September 2nd (try 'em all for just $25).

As Elites came in they were greeted with a glass of Lunetta Rose and a crab and lobster slider before settling into the main dining room which featured: 5 wine tasting stations, an hors d' oeuvres station with a variety of cheeses and marinated vegetables, and a dessert station with luscious crème brûlée and chocolate tarts. Not mention the fantastic strolling bites like beef tenderloin sandwiches!

The staff from the Capital Grille welcomed everyone with booklets on the Generous Pour event and the selection of wines and even ran a raffle giving away dinner for 2 at their fine establishment! In addition, we were lucky enough to raffle off 5 pairs of tickets to Maker Faire Detroit, a celebration of all things creative here in SE Michigan. At the end of the day all guests left with a gift bag from Capital Grille featuring a very fancy wine bottle cork!

A zillion thanks to the generous staff at the Capital Grille for treating us to a magnificent afternoon. It’s to their credit that this became a 5 star affair! Thanks, as always, to Doug Coombe Photography for the lovely photos, and to Yelptern Jessica B for her excellent check-in skills. And, last but not least, thanks to our excellent Elite squad for joining us on a Sunday afternoon for this memorable event!

To know more about the event that Carole H calls “just perfect” head on over to our review page and see what’s got everyone buzzin’ (or write a review of your own!).
