A Feb. 13 Huffington Post report declares “It's a sad day for D.C.-area burger lovers,” and it is true.
Two of the metro area’s most popular spots are leaving a gaping hole. Ray’s Hell-Burger and its sister restaurant, Ray’s Hell-Burger Too are closing their doors, according to a Feb. 13 Washingtonian Report.
These burger havens are helmed by chef Michael Landrum and have been a special meeting spot for after-work burgers and drinks. The joints announced their temporary closure last month, allegedly a
“minor blip” due to a “landlord-tenant dispute.” Now the real estate company responsible for the properties has confirmed the buildings’ availability for lease.
Most people say that Ray's Hell-Burger became popular after President Barack Obama dined there twice; first with Vice President Joe Biden in 2009 and again with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev a year later. But locals beg to differ. It has been popular since it opened. The simplicity of the menu, coupled with the ambiance of engaging with neighbors, colleagues and friends at a local joint is priceless and will be missed.
