Food in Focus: GrillMarX

For his dining column this week, Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema traveled to Olney to visit GrillMarX , a new steakhouse and raw bar. Though he wasn’t enamored with the restaurant’s name, Sietsema enjoyed what he found on his plate — he awarded the the new American eatery a respectable two stars — and suggested that this house of meat and potatoes dining fills a void in Olney. Take a look for yourself with these photos of the food.
