Rack of lamb - DC/NoVa

Calling all chowhounds to chime in on the best rack of lamb in the DC/NoVa area. Not only the tastiest, but also a good bang for the buck!

HUGE craving.

    Lebanese Butcher- Not exactly a rack of lamb (but I don't see why they couldn't do it) their fresh cut lamb chops are great $15.25

      There's a small local farm that does only lamb who vend at the Reston farmer's market. Don't know their name off the top of my head, though.

        raaga has excellent tandoori lamb chops. succulent, savory. good value. good service. linen tablecloths & napkins. bailey's x-roads. http://www.raagarestaurant.com/#

        there are about 5 double rib chops (iirc, or thick one chop width?), served with a wonderful savory spinach side dish and basmati rice, as well. @18 bucks.

        no comparison to the dining *experience* at lebanese butcher -- for a coupla bucks more...

          It was on the menu at Corduroy when I was there about a month ago. I didn't get it but it looked fantastic. It serves 2. Not sure if its a good bang for the buck...but then again it IS Corduroy and therefore probably worth it.
