Our party of the 3 went to The Capital for the first time as part of the Albany Restaurant Week promotion, where for $20.17 we could choose items from a special menu.
The service was good and the presentation was nice, but the food was just OK. For a starter, I chose the hummus and pickle plate, which was the best part of the meal overall, with varied pickled items, good bread, and excellent hummus. For the main course, I chose the cider-glazed salmon with pickled apples. It was cooked perfectly, but the sauce was too similar to the flavors of the pickle plate. I had expected it to be sweeter and more mellow, and the intense vinegar flavor overwhelmed the taste of the fish.
For dessert, I chose the creme brulee cheesecake. The crackly creme brulee topping was nice, and the consistency of the cheesecake was excellent, but the flavor was bland and the cheesecake was partially frozen.
Overall, the food was good, but not great, but I would be willing to give them another try.
