DETAILS

No white linens top these tables, nor do celebrity caricatures decorate the walls: Ray's the Steaks and its adjoining no-reservations Retro Ray's bistro provides the anti-chain experience in favor of true neighborhood flavor. Loyal patrons will gladly drive from the beef emporium that is D.C. to Arlington, Va., where chef/owner Michael Landrum newly relocated and expanded restaurant offers the same top-drawer cuts of meat for substantially smaller prices. Enjoy gargantuan New York strips, bacon-wrapped filets and rib eyes, served with two heaping cast-iron skillets of mashed potatoes and creamed spinach (at no extra charge). Excellent wine list and house-made pies to boot. The 40-seat Retro Ray's next door offers relatively the same menu at reduced prices.

 

 

Reservations strongly recommended. Full bar. Serving dinner nightly. No-reservations Retro Ray's serving dinner nightly. "Think of it as the poor man's Morton's."
- Tom Sietsema, The Washington Post, Oct. 18, 2009
