Best of 2005: Prime Beef

Our pick for the best prime beef in the area

Say what you will about chef Carole Greenwood, famous for her mercurial way with customers – she makes a killer steak. Filet mignon seems boring and prissy next to her thick, Prime-grade sirloin at Buck's Fishing & Camping (5031 Connecticut Ave., NW; 202-364-0777). Grilled over applewood, hickory, and oak and crusty with salt and fat, it's $35 worth of steak at its rustic best.
