How do you like your steak? Medium rare is the answer, especially at Medium Rare in Washington DC where America meets France in a steakhouse. At Medium Rare, the words steakhouse and affordable are combined in a relaxed and fun environment.
Modeled after a steakhouse based in Paris, Medium Rare has three locations in the DC area - Bethesda, Cleveland Park and Capitol Hill. The concept is warm and friendly serving up tasty food in a relaxed, non-pretentious way. The music is turned up loud, making you lean in to talk, like you would if you were in a French bistro.
The menu at Medium Rare is very simple. All you have to decide is how you want your meat cooked because the menu is a pre-fixe offering for $20.45.
Spend a day shopping and you can work up a good appetite. But you do not need to fill up with junk food or other typical mall food when a nice civilized lunch is available.
The Americana at Brand in Glendale is not your typical mall. Open air, it is more like a little village filled with retail stores and restaurants. One of the restaurants is Bourbon Steak by Michael Mina, located on the corner of Colorado Avenue and Brand Boulevard. An American steakhouse, there are five Bourbon Steak restaurants around the country.
