EAT: Ruth’s Chris Steak House – Jakarta (JAX, Feb 2016)

After many decades of serving steak fanatics in New Orleans, Ruth’s Chris Steak House finally arrives in J-Town.

The city of New Orleans of where Ruth’s Chris Steak House was born possesses a distinctively rich cultural and ethnic heritage that has evolved over centuries between two civilizations – European and Creole. In turn, this relationship creates a magical chemistry that influences over what Ruth’s Chris Steak House has to offer until this very day.

The original Chris’ Steak House actually came to as far as 1927 and retained the status as New Orleans’ only fine-dining restaurant for many years. Until in 1965, a struggling single mother – Ruth Fertel acquired the business despite many who opposed the idea. It was due to many unsuccessful attempts to reignite the old business again to prominence.

Under her care, the steak house became more successful than ever and franchised in many countries, reaching more than 80 restaurants as of today. Despite of her passing in 2002, the legacy is being continued carefully and still in the spirit of what “The Empress of Steak” once taught.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House uses custom-aged US Prime beef, and employs the use of 260C heated plate to ensure the steak stays sizzling hot upon serving.

It’s a no fuss and no frills experience when it comes to enjoying it. Specific sauce will be provided upon request, but if not, it’s just love affair between salt, pepper and the butter sauce. Pure and simple.

The steak is also complemented by traditional delicacies of US’ southern hospitality with a solid lineup such as the shrimp remoulade, barbecued shrimp, crab cakes, lobster bisque, the Crabtini, and the classic Ruth’s chop salad that consists of 15 ingredients.
