You’ve been through it before.

Your mercurial chairman has tasked you with finding the newest lunch spot in town to discuss your already incendiary career trajectory. Someplace with steaks. Tons of wine. And ideally, an astonishing portrait of Red Auerbach.

Don’t worry, we found it. And it’s an old friend in a new home.

Take your first look at The Capital Grille, a plush-leather-boothed-and-rich-mahogany-walled cathedral for power lunches and huge steaks, opening this Wednesday in the Back Bay.

You of course know this place from its previous location a couple blocks away. And a lot is the same here. Namely: the oil paintings. The 5,000 bottles of vino to choose from. And the meaty options to nosh on with big-money clients. Think: Bone-In Kona Crusted Dry Aged Sirloin and Cedar Planked Salmon (we think this is where “planking” originated from).

But the twist here is that they’re now doing lunch. Which means this’ll be your new go-to for 45-minute midday meetings with the boss over sliced filet mignon or a lobster and crab burger.

You’ve always moved up the corporate ladder over surf and turf.
