Michael Landrum’s second restaurant, across from the AFI Silver Theatre, isn’t the mob scene that Ray’s the Steaks in Arlington often is. That’s mostly because this retro-cool dining room has much more space—and a bar. The lounge, which feels like an Eisenhower-era cocktail spot, has lots of room to hang out, sip a Gibson, or even grab dinner. The bar menu is filled with Landrum classics such as his much-vaunted Hell-Burger, hanger steak, and “devilishly good” eggs stuffed with steak tartare. A three-course dinner special is $23.95.
