I decided to meet Kirsten downtown for lunch, and after arriving at her office, we made the short walk up to Andrew’s Capital Grill & Bar, which is perched on the corner of S. Adams and W. Jefferson Streets. The afternoon heat and humidity were thick, and after very briefly considering a seat outside, we made our way into the air conditioned restaurant.
We were seated at a small table near the back of the restaurant, and were immediately greeted by our waiter. Two menus were given to us, and while he raced off to get our drinks, we surveyed the lunch menu.
Although we briefly considered their weekday hot lunch buffet, nothing makes me happier at lunch than a tasty sandwich, and Andrew’s has a wide selection. Their burgers and other creations are dubbed with the names of politicians and local celebrities, along with other clever names, which run the gambit from the Montford’s Tallahassee Sassy Burger to the Marco Cubio Cuban Sandwich. Kirsten quickly called dibs on their signature sandwich, the Haight Ashbury, which left me to select another sandwich. I decided to try Ron Book’s Pittsburgh Pastrami, and our waiter hustled off to place our order. For more on Andrew’s read the full review on Tallahassee.com.
