- General Info:
- They call Ruth’s Chris founder Ruth Fertel, the First Lady of American Restaurants. But before there were 130+ locations serving 25,000 steaks a day, there was a fearless single mother of two who tore an ad from the local newspaper that read “steak house for sale” and thought, “I can do that”. The year was 1965. It’s a great American story of how one person- a woman, at a time and in a business dominated by men took an idea and made it sing. What Ruth lacked in experience she made up in hard work. But it wasn’t just sixteen – hour days that made her steakhouse an icon. Ruth had the divinely simple, yet uncommonly magical way of touching people with genuine kindness- the way food and love and people just fit together in her hometown of New Orleans where the legend was born. in 1976, there was fire at the original Chris’ Steak House, destroying the restaurant and leaving Ruth in a difficult situation. But Ruth was smart, and she learned to trust her instincts. Ruth plowed forward and within seven days she was back in business in a new location just four blocks away on Broad Street in New Orleans. Tired of guests calling her Chris but not wanting to lose to loyal customer base who knew the restaurant by it’s longtime name, Ruth renamed her restaurant “Ruth’s Chris Steak House”…and the rest is history.

I have been to Ruth's Chris countless times and every experience had been up to par, but the last visit deserves praise by the exceptional service.
I had went with a friend to RC's last Thursday evening with the intention of having some small plates and a glass of wine. When ended up happening is 3 hours later, 2 bottles of wine and a handful of appetizers/small plates and a memorable experience.
Upon being seated we were greeted immediately by a server who let us know that there would be a couple servers handling us for the evening. Each one of the servers were cordial and accommodating. From the moment they checked my ID, they had called me by my name each time they addressed me, which is a nice personable touch which is lost upon most restaurants these days.
The seared ahi is great and has a flavorful and spicy wasabi soy-ginger sauce accompanying it. The portion size is good for two. The coconut shrimp and stuffed mushrooms with crab are also very flavorful and would suggest ordering.
The guest I was with, said they have never had such a good combination of service and food. Although, Ruth's has a premium price tag, it's worth every penny.
Free valet parking out front of the restaurant. If you want more of a casual atmosphere, sit in the bar area. They have hightop tables as well as conventional white cloth booths. Either one will give you a good atmosphere and less of the uptight feel.
