Why does Ruth’s Chris Steak House have to be written this way? All I can think about is how hard it is to say where we ate Saturday night. It seems like the possession in the title should be shown after Chris.
No one around here is trying to be Grammar Girl, I’m just wondering: Why can’t the name be Ruth Chris Steak House without showing any possession at all? This would limit the mental struggle customers are left to deal with, as well as the pain felt from the unnecessary grammar moment of ultimate word possession pain.
Who is Ruth and why is Ruth in possession of Chris? Who is Chris and why can’t they work things out for the better of the restaurant world? It’s time to ask Google. Be right back.
Having to watch the informative video, filled with steak house history, hurt my feelings at first. After about one minute, everything suddenly changed. Holy cow, Ruth is an amazing lady who doesn’t even like the name of the restaurant herself. Go figure.
She bought Chris Steaks in New Orleans for $18,000 around 50 years ago. When it burned, she reopened down the street ten days later, but couldn’t take the restaurant’s name with her. That’s a really mean thing to do to Ruth after she worked so hard to make the place a success. Being an intelligent business woman, Ruth decided to stick her name before Chris and call the restaurant— Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
After Google cleared things up, no one should give Ruth a hard time, if she’s alive, or be annoyed with the name of her restaurant even if she’s dead. Good grief. There’s nothing annoying about the food, especially the lobster mac & cheese.
As expensive as this place is, the bar was packed with kids and adults stuffing their faces with happy hour food. After a full-blown happy hour investigation, Ruth’s has a pretty good deal. Check out their happy hour menu —> here.
I ordered the spicy lobster appetizer and then ordered it again as my entrée. This is something no one should ever do if they want lots of pictures for a food blog. Deciding not to care was the right thing to do. Our server said they salt and pepper the steaks, then place them in an 1800 degree oven. She stressed not to touch the plates upon delivery, so the meat people followed directions.
We had the usual sides people get at a steak house— sautéed mushrooms, creamed spinach, and mashed potatoes. The service was spot on and everything from start to finish made our table happy. Another service miracle in Dallas. Please & thanks.
