History
The first Rare Steakhouse was opened in Madison, Wisconsin in May 2014 with a goal of recreating the nostalgia and romance of the classic steakhouse, where eating out was meant to be an experience. The second location in Milwaukee opened in 2016, and the Washington, DC location opened in 2017.
