Ruth’s Chris★ ★


Since opening just a few doors down from St. Elmo Steakhouse in 1994 (a bold move if there ever was one), this chain has been as piping hot as the plates it delivers to conventioneers and couples on a date-night splurge. At both the downtown and Ironworks locations, the steaks are served in a sizzling pool of butter—a delicious gimmick has stood the test of time. Gimlets and Old Fashioneds top a deliciously throwback cocktail menu, and a showstopper of a banana cream pie with brûléed bananas helps complete a seamless steakhouse experience. Dinner daily.
