Ruth's Chris Steak House Restaurant Review

: What put this upscale New Orleans-based steakhouse on the map is its juicy beef served sizzling in a pool of butter. Despite the rapid growth of this worldwide chain, the experience never feels mass-produced. Veal, lamb, chicken or fish are all options, but we suggest sticking with Ruth's Chris' hand-cut USDA Prime Midwestern filet mignon, rib-eye, New York strip or porterhouse steaks, accompanied by one of many potato selections or giant asparagus spears with hollandaise sauce. Recommended starters include New Orleans-style barbecued shrimp and Louisiana shrimp rémoulade. While steak is surely the star, the Maine lobster is also first-rate, and desserts like the signature chocolate chunk bread pudding with whisky sauce should not be overlooked. The wine list offers plenty of big reds to complement those hearty steaks.
