Medium Rare is conveniently located right across from the Cleveland Park Metro rail station and nearby the Zoo. They are only open for dinner.
We had great weather so we sat outside in their patio area, which was really nice. Our server (a gentleman from England who went to school in the US at Penn State) was excellent as well! This is an interesting restaurant, because they really only have one option, it’s a pre-fixe menu of bread, salad, steak with secret sauce, and french fries for $20, but you can substitute a Portobello mushroom for the steak if you don’t eat red meat. (I apologize for the picture quality, it was an after thought on this trip!)
The good news is since they specialize it’s quite good. It’s also all gluten free, except the bread. For the main course, they serve you two medium helpings of the steak (or mushroom), which is thin but very tender and delicious, and fries. (The fries are gluten free and its the only thing they fry in the fryer.) They have a limited dessert and bar menu. For gluten free, they really only have vanilla ice cream which was large but a bit pricey, but the portions are generous so you’re likely to be delightfully full from the meal and salad anyways!
