Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby presides over glitzy, expensive restaurants that would be perfectly appropriate on the Las Vegas strip. He has also added some Kentucky charm to his Louisville establishment with one wood paneled dining room displaying a horse racing décor. Among the signature out-size steaks is a 30-ounce aged “hatchet” rib-eye. Seafood (here called “ocean meats”) is similarly portioned. The lobster tail weighs in at 12 ounces. The raw bar is laden with king crab legs, jumbo shrimp, and a multitude of East and West Coast oysters. There’s a sushi bar, too. À la carte sides include macaroni and cheese (made with six cheeses, no less), grilled asparagus, creamed spinach and several potato preparations. Among entrées that actually come with sides are lamb loin, duck breast and roasted chicken. Highly professional staff stands ready to advise on wine selections. In the unlikely event that you have any appetite left at meal’s end, the Maker’s Mark mousse cake with Amarena cherry sauce is perfect for sharing.
