I know this subject has been done to death.
I am visiting DC from the UK late August with my 18 y.o. son and we want to eat steak - it's a father - son thing!
Last time we were in DC we visted Bobby Vans and found it a disappointing experience especially in view of the price. They seems to be trying to be something they weren't and the poorly trained service was appalling.
I have read great things here about The Prime Rib, but I am not wearing jacket and tie in DC in August for anyone.
What are my alternatives in decent quality steaks that are not part of national chains?
Oh! and I like to smoke a cigar after the meal!
