This is huge news! Michael Landrum, owner of Ray’s the Steaks and Ray’s Hell Burger, my ultimate favorite place to get burgers, will open his latest concept dubbed “RYSE” at 1065 5th St. NW in the City Vista building in Mt. Vernon Square this fall. RYSE will be an urban bakery, cafe, and coffee shop serving up salads, fresh sandwiches and possibly frozen yogurt. Landrum’s first venture was Ray’s the Steaks in Arlington, but he really become famous with the opening up Ray’s Hell Burger. Probably helped that the Obama went too. These giant burgers are seriously unreal! You choose everything you want on including specialty cheeses some costing up to $4 a slice! Last time I went I got a $17 burger… yea I got the $4 cheese. This cafe/bakery might be a different route for this meat lover, but with all his success, I’m sure it will be a home run! Can’t wait to try this place out! I’m sure Obama is super syked too!
