Medium Rare (Washington, DC)
What it's serving: Steak frites
The deal: Choices can be pretty daunting, so this steakhouse in DC takes care of all those pesky questions and boils it down to one: "How do you like your steak?" The dinner menu is a fixed-price package ($19.75) including a perfectly cooked steak with secret sauce, French fries, bread, and a salad. That's it. Their brunch menu is a little more varied, but still keeps the focus on steak -- if you cooked it this well, wouldn't you, too?
