Resturant of the Week - Ruth's Chris Steakhouse

Postby CuppedAndCommitted » April 20th, 2006, 5:06 pm

As the new moderator of the Restaurant Forum, I thought I would try and contribute a little something each week that might provide some gastric insight in some regional, and not-so-regional, dining venues. As some of you know, I am a sales rep, and have the opportunity to travel and dine in restaurants frequently. I come across some great ones, and some not-so-great ones. I will provide revues on both. If you have a recommendation, let me know. I'll check it out.

The first restaurant to review is Ruth's Chris Steak House. I'll start buy saying that if you want to eat here, bring the checkbook. The steaks were $35-$45 per entr?e, and everything is ordered "ala cart". A salad was $6, taters were $8, and vegetables were $8. I'm sure high rollers like KSCraig and PS think nothing of it, but for the average Joe, figure $70-$80 a head to eat.

Now I have had some great steaks in my lifetime, and most of them came right off my wood fired grill in the back yard, but I will say that this was the best "restaurant" steak I've every had. I had the ribeye, and it came out sizzlin', on a Image' hot plate (that is their trade mark), drippin' with some kind of butter on top. The flavor was great and it was very tender. I found out that they are broiled in an 1800 degree oven. Now, again, I prefer my steaks with grill marks, and licked by a wood fire, but it was still a great steak.

The sides were awesome. I had the sweet tater casserole. This was some kind of mashed sweet tater with a topping that had brown sugar and pecans in it. This dish alone would have made the trip. After just a couple of bites, I was trying to figure out what was in it, so I could try it at home. It was so dayum hot when it was served though, ya couldn't eat it for fifteen minutes.

The service was impeccable. Each waiter has an assistant, so you are never in need of anything. The ambiance was appropriate. I say that in that it was exactly what a restaurant that cost what it does, should be.

I will ad this. I ate at the Ruth's Chris in Orlando. As we were leaving, I saw Lee Corso from ESPN. I thought about whippin his azz, but was so dayum full; I figured all I'd do was puke on him. Not that that wouldn't have been funny, but it sure would have been wasteful.
McLintock, great party, but no whiskey. We go home.

Why, Craig... I actually agree with you. Plaza 3 is better than Ruth's. Although, the Main Street B&G in Grandview... though much less atmosphere is a contender. None compare to backyard grilling, however.

Grilled ribeye at the Tick Farm after a long day in the tree stand is about as good as it gets.

I had a grilled yak ribeye at Saskatoon in Greenville, SC and it was fantastic.

No question - Ruth's Chris cooks up a killer slab of meat. But for about half the price, Tuckers in Soulard is just as good, In my humble opinion.

KSCraig,

It's a part of S. St. Louie., not far from the A.B. brewery. It's probably most well known for it's giant open air market, but it's become sort of an area of regeneration.

There are several bars that specialize in scantily clad waitresses, and also run shuttles to and from Cardinal games.

The competition between bars to have the best looking /sluttiest waitresses, and also the best food make it a great place to have lunch. Image Image

Nah, I live in St. Charles co., W. of St. Louie.



I used to work in the city, and certain contractors I used regularly would take me there for lunch.



I forkin' HATE the city, and don't even cross the river into St. Louis co. unless I have a really good reason.



That said, the market is pretty cool. A lot of local produce growers vend there, to avoid the middle man. The chit is fresh, and the price wars make things cheap to boot.



You can walk out of there with anything from locally grown produce,specialty meats, to live chickens, ducks and the like.



It's where all the fashionable Rastfarians get the live chickens for their Voo-Doo rituals. Image

I met me this crazy lil voodoo woman when I was down in New Orleans once. Spent the night with her, had us some great, freaky voodoo-sex. The next mornin while I was asleep, she put some kinda voodoo spell on me and buried my underwear in the backyard. Man, I couldn't leave for a week. Since then, I don't mess with no voo-doo wimmens!

Spent the first 34 years of my life in St. Louis. The first house I ever bought was in dogtown, and I worked in midtown, neither of which was too far from soulard. We used to hit Soulard market quite frequently for fresh fruits and veggies, and there are some perty fine scarfin establishments down that way as well. I think I even had a beer down there once or twice... Image Image

J.D.,

I didn't know you were originally an Eastsider. Image

They do have some good eats in Soulard,but you can possibly skip that. But, with a light S. breeze, the aroma from the brewery just forces a dude to have a few beers. Image Image

Dogtown, huh ? Seamus McDaniel's had some pretty good vittles too. Image
