Jimmy's On K Opens Today

Touting its Kansas City steaks and New England lobster, Jimmy's On K Street opens today at 1700 K St. NW.

The restaurant takes its name from Jimmy's Harborside Restaurant in Boston and is apparently a new concept from the owners of McCormick and Schmick's, though the Web site makes no connection to the seafood chain. Back in September, when covering the lease agreement for the space, the Washington Business Journal reported that M&S would "test a new high-end restaurant that will serve 50 percent seafood and 50 percent steak to D.C. power brokers."

Claiming to be the only place in Washington to carry Old K.C. Branded Kansas City Custom Dry Aged Beef, the restaurant offers plenty of meat entrĂ©es including a 22-ounce cowboy ribeye and sliced Kansas City steak with a truffled demi glace. The extensive menu also offers about 14 seafood entrĂ©es and three different surf and turf meals, including the jumbo version — a 12-ounce filet and 16-ounce Atlantic lobster tail.

Dinner prices range from the low $20s to nearly $50 for a 16-ounce bone-in filet, while lunch prices are much softer, ranging from about $12 to $23 for main courses.

I'm so glad someone is finally addressing DC's lack of high-end steakhouses.

in the same neighborhood as Jimmy's and related to the subject of restaurant openings, I believe Wasabi is set to open any day now . . .

There's not enough meat in the world to satisfy our 'power broker' appetites! kidding...

And thanks for the heads up on Wasabi.

I hope I am wrong but it appears that in the professional picture of the expensive surf and turf there is melted butter in a plastic [!!!??] container.

It does kind of look that way, doesn't it?

We had dinner there on June 20 and knew we might be in for the "shake down cruise". Service was good, although a little too chummy. Food was fine, when our order was finally completed correctly. Although, watch your bill. We were charged for the wrong steak, which we sent back, PLUS the correct one, when it arrived some time later.

A good reminder, especially for new places where they're still working on learning the compter system.

One of the greatest meals I have ever had. Better than the Palm and Ruth Chris. The wait staff (females) are easy on the eyes! Get the Ribeye!

I just had dinner last evening, and I have to say that everything about the restaurant was incredible. The service was impeccable - very attentive, but not disruptive. I ordered the Bone-In Kansas City Strip - it was by far one of the best I've had (and I've had my share of high-end steak houses having lived in NYC and DC, including Luger's and Luger spin-offs, Sparks, Palm, Charlie Palmer's, Bobby Van's, Ray's the Steaks, Homestead, Keen's, and the chains like Capital Grille, Morton's, Ruth's Chris, etc.). The wine list is extensive, and the desserts (if you have room left) were fantastic. So happy that Jimmy's has come to DC.
