AOL Travel Editor’s Review

At its roots D.C. will always be a meat-and-potatoes town, so it would be a shame to visit the city without indulging in at least one robust, well-prepared steak. Don't be fooled into thinking that you need to pay Charlie Palmer prices though—an enterprising young man named Ray has made quite a name for himself in these parts by serving up excellent and affordable quality cuts. It's saying something that he was able to steal sommelier Mark Slater from Michel Richard's Citronelle. Ray's is one of the best Washington DC restaurants if you're looking for well-prepared, mouthwatering steak. There's no pretense here—paper menus explain temperature, color and char and sides are included at no extra cost. The only downside is the location, just outside D.C. proper—you'll need to travel over the river to Rosslyn (an easy metro stop on the orange line). Make reservations or be prepared to wait hours for a table.
