Disgruntled Luger waiters need not apply: What distinguishes Capital Grille at the Chrysler Center from the zillion other midtown steakhouses isn't the dry-aged beef, the 5,000-bottle wine vault, the clubby portraits of New York icons, or even Philip Johnson's soaring glass-and-steel pyramids. It's the super-friendly service, which may make you wonder whether you've been teleported to Pleasantville, so unrelentingly chipper is the smiley staff.
