In search of a reasonably priced steakhouse

Annie's Paramount in Dupont maybe.

Or, go to Firefly and get "Michael's Rib Eye Diablo". I believe that it's still on the menu. It's been too long since I've been in. :sad:

If someone writes a book about restaurants and nobody reads it, will it produce a 10 page thread?

I would not be so quick to rule out Ray's the Steaks. If you are willing to dine during the "early shift" and arrive at 6:00 and be subject to the 90 minute rule, you can eat at Ray's just about any day you like on short notice. Or. alternatively, ask for a late reservation, say 8:30 or 9:00, then you can stay as long as you like. The hardest time to get is the popular 7:00 or 7:30 time slot. If you are willing to work around that, you can enjoy Ray's to your heart's content. And don't forget to order the scallops as an appetizer.

I like Sam and Harry's, though it's no Ray's. Despite the name, I've never thought of Annie's as a great steak place. Last time I went to Ruth's Chris it sucked.

You might try Les Halles, for the French fried take on a steakhouse, or even Bistro du Coin, though I think on an "on" night Les Halles is better and offers a larger beef selection.

I'm on the pavement

Thinking about the government.

Wonderful!!

I had a wager with another member of this board that someone would still manage to reccomend Ray's.

Not that there's anything wrong the advice mind you, i'm just happy to be up $10.

I wanna say something. I'm gonna put it out there; if you like it, you can take it, if you don't, send it right back. I want to be on you.

Montmartre has a great hanger steak, but the restaurant is definitely not a steakhouse.

Oh, J[esus]. You may be omnipotent, but you are SO naive!

I've always been partial to the steaks, especially the filet, from the Great American restaurants (Carlyle, Sweetwater Tavern, etc), but I don't see their restaurants discussed much on eGullet. Of course, at popular times it's a long wait to get a table.

I went to Carlyle a few times when I lived in the Park Fairfax.

While decent-to-good, to me, it is easily one of the two or three most overrated restaurants in the DC area.
