It’s a classic for a reason

There’s something about the combination of blue cheese, iceberg lettuce, bacon, tomato, and creamy dressing that gets diners coming back to the wedge salad again and again. Many steakhouse menus in D.C. include the classic, but wedge salads can also be found at other restaurants trying to capitalize on the nostalgia. Here are some of the best versions in D.C.

RPM Italian

RPM Italian puts a new spin on the wedge, adding Caesar salad flair (not to mention polenta croutons). It’s $14.

Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steaks & Stone Crab

Another classic steakhouse version is Joe’s BLT wedge ($14.95), which combines pork belly, grape tomatoes, chopped egg, blue cheese and a vinaigrette dressing.
