This community misses Michael. :(

 

I haven't seen him at all in the last couple of years, even at RTS.

 Ktmoomau, was your server the gentleman with an array of pens in a spectrum of colors in his breast pocket?

 

I don't recall seeing all the pens, but could be possible.

About 3 months ago helplessly trapped on a stupid little usair plane waiting for those dumb busses to show up to take us to the terminal, one word was spoken. Ray's. That was all. Nothing else was necessary. We went there straight from the airport with luggage in tow (which they kindly stored for us) and Michael was there. It was a Sunday night.

 

It also turned out to be the best single word spoken in months. Steaks were phenomenal and service impeccable. Nothing has changed. We also tried the appetizer that has a huge scallop, huge shrimp and a shot of bisque. It was excellent as well.

 

I note that I was in there again a few weeks ago and they had bar stools at the bar in the back room (the retro room?). I don't recall seeing those there before. Nice option for a solo diner craving a good meal.

He's still around.  We don't go often, but every time we do, he's there. <shrug>

Does anyone know what the menu for Retro Rays is???  How is it different from Ray's?  I couldn't find it on his website and menupages seemed to have the same Ray's the Steaks.

 

And now a very belated response to this question.....

 

Retro Ray's is "there".   Like Kate I had noticed that Retro Ray's, which did have a "separate menu" a bit ago, had not added it to the site.  I'd think that Michael Landrum doesn't pay much attention to the website.  He may simply not be thinking about it, or alternatively has other reasons for not posting the details.  I wouldn't know.

 

I had meant to stop by, copy the menu, and post it here.  Haven't gotten around to doing so.  The menu featured different dishes at significant discounts off of typical Ray's fare and some different items, I think scallops wrapped in bacon as an example.  Possibly I'll get around to it this week.

 

Although looking at this response...the following response to the question above....did not, sadly, I must report, come from my efforts, nor was it accomplished on a timely basis.   Alas!!!!

 

Anyways here is Retro Rays or what is now called the Bistro's menu...per a newish website that I happened to chance on today....

You can work your way through "starters", lighter fare, and the old traditionals;  certainly more informative than some months ago.

Seems like the DC location of Hell Burger has run into some trouble. http://www.bizjourna...ger-in-d-c.html

Man, I hope this doesn't mean anything bad for the rest of the Ray's joints.

 Thanks very much for posting the menu!

I remain unclear on what the Bistro is.  Made reservations at Ray's for dinner last Saturday, at 6 p.m.  What I think of as the main dining room wasn't full but we were placed all the way in the back, past the bathrooms, which I thought was the Bistro?


I'm just here for the chow.
