Fenty, Gray to attend Ward 7 steakhouse opening Wednesday
Ray's: The Steaks at East River will open with fanfare Wednesday when Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) joins eccentric restaurateur Michael Landrum to unveil his latest addition.
Expect D.C. Council member Yvette M. Alexander (D-Ward 7) and Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray (D) to be on hand. The new restaurant will be Ward 7's second big-name, sit-down establishment. Denny's will finally get some company.
Don't expect fireworks between Fenty and Gray, who announced last week that he will challenge the mayor in the September primary. They've been civil in all of their run-ins since Gray's announcement. But watch out for Landrum, who is known as much for throwing out misbehaving or impatient customers as he is for his investment in forgotten communities.
The event begins at 3:30 p.m. at Ray's, 3905 Dix St. NE.
