Is there an adjective in English that means "pertinent to the capital city"? Example from Russian: The name of a certain vodka brand means "related to or coming from the capital city". I know at least one restaurant having the same name and there used to be sweets called like that.

Sample sentence (X is the word I'm looking for):

The restaurant offered a variety of X dishes.



designating, of, or relating to a capital city.

(Oxford English Dictionary)

Also, there is the NHL team Washington Capitals. Everyone knows what capitals refers to; it is just a plural of capital, referring to our nation's capital.


I'd suggest metropolitan (as in London's Metropolitan Police).
