Ruth's Chris Steak House ~ "Foodie" Friday 5/4/18

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

Its going to be a wet Friday in Austin but the rest of the week-end should be sunny and warm. Feel like a steak done to perfection? The First Lady of American Restaurants knows how to cook a steak and she serves it with a warm Texas welcome!! What more could you ask for??





Ruth Fertel opened her first steak house, Chris' Steak House,  in 1965 in New Orleans. To keep from being called Chris all the time, she named the restaurant "Ruth's Chris Steak House".  When you enter the restaurant, you'll see how the richness of the remodeled interior makes it as unique as Austin. There's Austin inspired artwork with new custom light fixtures.  Their expanded bar has a refined rustic elegance to it with natural birch dividers, aged leather accents, tufted booths and a 3D bat sculpture.


Start  your dining experience with something from the appetizer menu: try some Mushrooms Stuffed with Crabmeat sprinkled with Romano cheese, or Veal Osso Buco Ravioli - saffron infused pasta filled with veal osso buco and fresh mozzarella topped with a white wine demi-glace.   On the entree menu there's a Cowboy Ribeye - 22oz of marbled and generously flavored bone-in cut... a 16 oz. USDA prime cut New York Strip steak, and if you're really hungry try the 40oz. Tomahawk Ribeye broiled to perfection and hand cut tableside. Other choices could be the Lamb Chops - 3 chops cut extra thick that are marinated overnight and then broiled to perfection...There's also Chilean Sea Bass pan roasted and served over sweet potato and pineapple hash topped with citrus coconut butter.  


When it comes time for dessert try the White Chocolate Bread Pudding topped with your choice of 4 crème Anglaise sauces or the Chocolate Duo - chocolate cake coupled with chocolate mousse with a little sweet cream and topped with fresh berries.


Watch this video and see how their Signature Crab Cakes are made....

They are a wonderful chain restaurants.  We had them here in Santa Barbara, but they could not compete with Chuck's Steak House.  And so it goes. A

Good morning, Dorie - while it may be better known for its steaks,  non-conovoires can dine/enjoy it quite nicely too. Have a wonderful weekend.

Filet mignon is my preferred meal and Ruth never disappoints although I have to put them 4th on my list despite that they're the closest. We will be taking a friend and her son there next week. Great service however it's not quite "ninja" as the competitors are.

We have one of these in my area too, but I have never been.  I think it is too expensive for me, haha.  I have heard that they have a good happy hour though.

I've only ever been to one once.  And I was in Newark, NJ at the time a few years ago and there isn't one close to me.  But you describing the sea bass dish... well it's going to serve as inpiration for me cooking.

Dorie-The best bread pudding I ever had was at Ruth's Chris! In fact, I was on a business trip once and the restaurant there was a Ruth's Chris. I ordered room service and my dinner was a salad and the bread pudding! YUM.

Dorie Dillard - I'm not sure what drives so many people to Austin, your foodie recommendations or the great listings! I would bet it's one or the other or maybe both! I'm convinced, you lead people your way and they follow!!!

Good morning, Dorie.
I always wonder how Ruth's Chris Steakhouse got it's name.  I've eaten in one of her restaurants and it was wonderful ambiance and food.  I'm bookmarking this post so I can come back and watch the video on making crab cakes!!!  Thanks for sharing.
