Ray’s the Steaks – new location | February 11, 2009


Today was the grand opening of the new Ray’s the Steaks location in the Navy Building in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington.  For those of you who don’t already know, Ray’s the Steaks was previously located on Wilson in Rosslyn in the same shopping center as Ray’s Hell Burger. I stopped by to make a reservation and to check out Michael’s new digs. The owner, Michael Landrum took my reservation himself! He is so nice and reminded me I could call and make reservations now too. I could have called, but I decided to stop by to do a little scouting for our group Valentine’s Day dinner this Saturday. At the old Ray’s location, seating was first come first serve – no call ahead reservations! 

All the doors were open and as I walked into the reception area I realized it was because the entire place was smokey. Grease fire maybe? Mishaps are not uncommon on opening nights, but the interesting part was that none of the diners seemed to care! Not only did the diners look happy, the people walking in were not deterred by the smoke either! The food is that good. I can’t wait to enjoy the crab bisque, a big steak, the amazing sides, a glass of red wine, and a slice of key lime pie. This place has to be my favorite place to eat…anything.

  1. I need to try this asap. Do they take reservations for any size party or just large parties? Sliders sound so good right now.
