DC Steakhouse

Any tips on good steakhouses in/around DC that are also a good value? Also, any tips on good basic seafood joints? I have read all the food critic reviews, etc but would like some "real" advice. (We are not fancy types). Thanks

Okay, let me offer a couple of possibilities and it will also serve to get your post back up to the top...

Ruth's Chris Steak House, 1801 Connecticut Ave (near Dupont Circle) is a great place to have a steak dinner. Sure, you'll get the old "it's a chain" rap on it. Don't let that stop you, because these people know what they're doing with steaks, desserts, prawns, appetizers, and everything else. They also have a great wine selection and they know how to serve it: decanters, aeration funnels -- the works. You won't be dissapointed.

For seafood, check out the Market Inn, 200 E Street. It's something on the order of pub dining but it's great and you won't go away hungry. They have live lobster, all sorts of seafood entrees and an absolutely fabulous She-Crab soup that you should definitely have. Everything's super, right down to the crusty rolls -- and there is no need to dress up. Go there!

The Prime Rib has the best beef in D.C. and they give you more beef for your money than anywhere else - you'll think you've been served half the cow. But the important thing is that it's top quality and is served (if you like) w/ fresh grated horseradish. They also have valet parking

How about Rays the Steaks on Wilson in Arlington? Certainly not fancy and quite small with only 4-5 steaks on the menu but all hand cut and prepared carefully by the owner.

Amazing that as a place so close to Annapolis and wonderful seafood, we in DC don't have many great seafood places. Kinkead's on Pennsylvania Avenue is pricey , but has fabulous food and many great fish dishes. For the best authentic Chesapeake Bay seafood in the area, a quick trip to Silver Spring and Crisfields would be in order.
