Best Steak in the U.S.

Slide 6 of 20

Washington, DC

Lunch is more than a meal in this city, where restaurants cater to politicos and are often the setting for legislation negotiations. Power lunch spots include the many steak houses just steps from the U.S. Capitol Building.

Where to Eat: The Caucus Room is a popular bipartisan choice: It’s owned by former Republican National Committee chairman Haley Barbour, prominent Democrat lobbyist Tom Boggs and Ed Mathias from the Carlyle Group, the third largest private equity firm in the world. Superstar chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s J&G Steakhouse and Charlie Palmer Steak have discreet private dining areas and serve many congressmen and senators every week. Restaurateur Michael Landrum’s unpretentious spot Ray’s the Steaks in nearby Arlington, Virginia, is a low-key favorite of locals.
