Virginia ABC license application signs are up on the ground floor of the Latitude apartments at 3601 Fairfax Drive, with “Medium Rare” and co-owner Mark Bucher listed as the applicant.
Bucher responded to a resident’s tweet about the signs with an exclamation: “Coming soon!”
Last year a company representative told ARLnow.com that the restaurant would likely open in “early 2018,” though so far the storefront is completely empty. Construction for a restaurant’s interior usually takes at least a few months, often extended further by permitting issues.
Medium Rare is known for its steak frites, “secret sauce,” simple prix fixe menu and its relatively bargain prices — just over $20 for bread, salad, steak and fries.
