For Art’s birthday, in February, his parents gave him a gift card for Ruth’s Chris. We ended up being able to go in early March and had a great meal together overlooking the river and the airport.
Caesar - Fresh crisp romaine hearts tossed with romano cheese and a creamy Caesar dressing. Topped with shaved parmesan cheese and fresh ground black pepper.
As usual, I started off my meal with a Caesar salad. The best of all salads. Ruth’s Chris has great dressing and I always enjoy the inclusion of tomatoes.
Harvest Salad - Mixed greens with roasted corn, dried cherries, crispy bacon and tomatoes in a white balsamic vinaigrette, topped with goat cheese and Cajun pecans.
Art will order pretty much anything on a menu that has goat cheese so he got the Harvest salad. It was scrumptious and he especially enjoyed the Cajun pecan pieces.
Steak House Salad - Iceberg, Romaine and baby lettuces with cherry tomatoes, garlic croutons and red onions.
Lance went with the steak house salad with thousand island dressing.
I’m assuming, since there’s only one photo of an entrée, that we all ordered the filet mignon. I would have ordered tuna, but this Ruth’s Chris didn’t have tuna on the menu! The filets were all delicious, perfectly done, and oh so tender.
For sides we ordered shoestring fries, asparagus, sautéed mushrooms, and some mashed potatoes that we something like jalapeno cheddar. All the sides were delicious but we came home with most of the asparagus for leftovers since I’m the only true asparagus lover in the house.
Chocolate Sin Cake - Chocolate and espresso
Art and Lance both ordered this sinful chocolate cake which was super dense and rich.
I went with a bowl of chocolate ice cream which was Haagen-Dazs and awesome.
Yet again, it was a great Ruth’s Chris dining experience. RC is always a safe bet if you’re in the mood for a reliably delicious steak house. I’m glad we finally got to try one in the local area. Thanks to Art’s parents for the generous gift!
