Sorry I don't know if the Capitol Grill is open on thanksgiving - you could check their website which may state opening times or just call and ask. Their are menus displayed on their website. Hope this helps you.
Being as the menu does not mention prices. How much on average is a meal for two with beverages?

My husband and I are travelling to NYC for our 25th Anniversary in Mid October. I am planning a special night out at the Capital Grille and want to purchase a gift card ahead of time and give it to him as a gift. Can anyone give me an idea of the cost of a bottle of wine? I know some are more than others. I love the Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay and of course a Cabernet. Thank you!
