Fmr Yanni’s in Cleveland Park to Become Steakhouse called ‘Medium Rare’

While WBJ had the very early word back in Nov. the Washington Post now shares more details of this huge Cleveland Park news:

Medium Rare, says its creator, Mark Bucher, is expected to open as early as next month at 3500 Connecticut Ave. NW (formerly Yanni’s Greek Taverna). There will be a single feature — steak frites — on the menu, although a meatless entrée will be available for vegetarians.

“The only question you’ll be asked when you come in is ‘How do you like your steak cooked? ‘” says Bucher, who, as the guy behind the popular burger chain BGR, knows a thing or two about what the masses like.

This should lessen the sting of National Shoe Rebuilders closing and Yanni’s (3500 Connecticut Ave, NW) I’ll still miss ya but this sounds pretty awesome.
