After looking forward to try Ruth’s Chris for months, finally I got to taste their steak tonight. Our party made a reservation at 9pm, Tuesday, which shouldn’t be a busy time. I hoped my chefs could pay more attention to every individual steak. The decor is simple, but comfortable with detail. Dark, but make a nice atmosphere, especially for dinner of nice steak.
I love ribeye because it has balance of meat and fat. Usually tender, juicy and easy to handle. Bone-in Ribeye was what I ordered. It came on a sizzling plate. It seasoned with just salt and pepper on melt butter. I think it’s too much butter to a point I felt greasy, together with seasoning, it became a little too salty toward the end. My friend ordered T-bone, generous portion, but he prefer my ribeye because it’s juicier. And my lady friends couldn’t eat that much, so they ordered filet. Looks like they were disappointed, saying it’s a little dry…. Ruth’s Chris’s choices of side dish was pretty boring. Potato, spinach, and something you could find in any regular steakhouse. We ordered dessert too, but already too full to remember how tasty it was. I just know my bread pudding was nice cuz of the flavor of whiskey sauce. Btw, my lady friends received a free dessert. Our waitress felt very sorry that their filet weren’t good. Round up: My part of bill was $70. According to this price, it’s a B+ steak experience. Meat was great, grade is deducted because I think chef put better care on it, especially less butter. This is a good steakhouse, but I believe there must be more can top Ruth’s Chris.
