Restaurateur Michael Landrum already had a fanatical following at his unpretentious steak house, Ray’s the Steaks. The response has been just as enthusiastic for his new burger joint in an Arlington strip mall. The hefty 10-ounce burgers, only $6.95 each, are made from freshly ground and hand-trimmed steak and roast cuts and include complimentary toppings like caramelized onions and mushrooms sautéed in sherry and Cognac. Luxurious, unexpected options, like bone marrow and seared foie gras, go for just a few dollars more.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
