Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Jeff Ruby has long appealed to the high roller, and nowhere can it be seen to better effect than at this eponymous joint in the heart of downtown. The whole scene is on a Big Apple scale, from the piano bar to the showcase dry-aging room for beef and private dining room with beveled glass doors. Art Deco abounds, as does luxury seating in tufted banquettes. Steak is king, from the massive 28-ounce bone-in rib-eye with white truffle butter to the 22-ounce bone-in sirloin and crusted, full-flavored filet. There's also a broad array of crisp salads, such as the Broadway with iceberg lettuce, Maytag blue cheese, port pears and pecans. Even the bread basket comes with truffle butter. Also notable are the blue crab bisque; potato pancakes with apple purée and sour cream; and beer can chicken, which is fragrant with fresh rosemary. Desserts are every bit as top-shelf. Go for the homemade ice cream with chocolate ganache, or the ricotta donuts. Some regulars come simply for the piano bar and a solid martini.

My visit at Jeff Rubys April 4th

WHile I enjoyed the food and over all time I was at Jeff Rubys Steakhouse, I think the music could have or was overdone. It was a late night I was there with friends from Detroit, in for the Gordon Lightfoot concert next door. We loved the food. I mean for the size and all that we ate with it, WOW! However the loudness of the LIVE singers were such that we had to YELL across the table at each other to carry on any talk. Perhaps curtailing the music or having a lower voulme would be better. Not that the group he had was bad, Just loud. I don't want to yell across the table to carry on talk with familyor friends.

Jeff Ruby really doesn't need to have music to get people in to his Steakhouse. The Steaks get the people in.
