    couple new places that are great
    ray's hell burgers or butcher burgers, opened 7/08, $8, critics say better than 5 guys or fuddruckers. The Foodandbeermonger: Ray's Butcher Burgers (aka Ray's Hell Burger)

    ray's the steaks, $20, critics say better than ruth chris or mortons
    no ph reservation, only in person, limited seating. will be moving and replaced w/ ray's seafood place sometime.
    Ray's the Steaks Restaurant Review (washingtonian.com)

    ray's the classics, silver spring, MD
