I was debating between giving Range 4 or five stars. Without question the food warrants five stars. I didn't love the place(more on that later) or the service, but as I think back over all the restaurants I have tried in the DC area over the last few years, Range may very well have served the best tasting food of them all.
The place was a little weird to me. It reminded me of a nice food court. It was comfortable and all. I just didn't fancy the fact that the scenery pretty much consists of a mall and an Embassy Suites Hotel.
After we were seated it took 10 minutes for our server to check in with us. Range has a unique menu that needs some explanation(especially if it is one's first time). After we ordered drinks it took another 10 minutes for them to get to our table. After those two little snafus and a nice chat with one of the managers everything went swimmingly. On a side note the manager who talked with us was quite nice and interesting.
The food; We tried lots of stuff, and everything was good. The things that really stood out were the linguini with sea urchin, the cheddar chive biscuits, the pizza(better than Two Amy's), and the pork cheek. Like I said though everything was top notch. They tell you to order three or four plates per person. I am a pretty big eater and I think 2 or three plates per person is more than adequate. I will be back, not so much for the place but for the food.
