Daily Grill, a California Chain in Three Area Locations


Recommended Posts

Anyone been to the Daily Grill in Dupont Circle. I searched and did not find any mention of it. I know it's a chain but is the food passable.

Anything to avoid.

It has gone from mediocre to pretty bad in the last couple of years. The cobb salad is always pretty much decent for lunch.

Have you seen the menu? It has everything you've ever eaten in your whole life from pizza to surf 'n turf, and everything in between.

Daily Grill = Cheesecake Factory's slightly (only very slightly) more refined cousin. I got to my Memphis hotel Tuesday night and thought "oh please no." My clients tend to pick it when given the option for the aforementioned similarity to the Cheesecake Factory. My guys are NOT daring eaters. Yesterday I dodged the Daily Grill bullet and we went to Blues City instead.

I have been unfortunate enough to eat from Daily Grill (Memphis) twice in the last 24 hours. First, I ordered a mid-afternoon meal out of desperation and a need to eat quickly while prepping for a meeting. My penne pesto with chicken was tasty in that let's-put-tons-of-butter-garlic-and-cream-in-so-the-diner-doesn't-notice-anything-else way. It was ok, definitely edible and absolutely enormous. Even though I ate only 1/4 of the dish, the richness gave me quite a stomachache. ;)

Today, I was set to have lunch (I'm not sure where, but somewhere local and "interesting"), but then it started storming and my colleague said "let's just go to Daily Grill." Blah. Again in the mood for pasta (silly me), I had angel hair pomodoro. I thought the simple dish would be hard to mess up, but it tasted pretty foul. I don't know if the garlic, and there was a lot of it, was old, spoiled or...something, but it just wasn't right. I didn't care enough to complain; just wanted to get through the lunch.
