Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse to Open Soon

It’s been about a year and a half since we first noted that Ruth’s Chris would be opening early in 2008. Well, it’s going to be late in the year before it comes to fruition, but open it will, probably in October, according to management. The prime quality steaks, from tenderloin to porterhouse, cut thick and seared at 1800 degrees to preserve juiciness,  then topped with butter for more sizzle,  are legendary among well-heeled corporate moguls from Hawaii to Florida. Housed in the beautiful old Morning News building, at 111 W. Bay St. , the restaurant will be the cornerstone of News Place.

It’s Official…

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse is coming to Savannah!  We’d heard the rumors, but I just got off the phone with their corporate office, and they are indeed set to open in August of 2008!  Finally, a true steakhouse in our area.  Ruth’s Chris will be opening in the old Savannah Morning News building, near the newly renovated Ellis Square.  They will also have some outdoor dining space.  (4 months and counting…)

We can almost taste it!

The arrival of Bull Street Chophouse is not far off.  An estimated six weeks in fact.  We have long awaited a great steakhouse and coming from the owners of Il Pasticcio, I’m sure it won’t disappoint.  We’ll keep you posted!

Something to look forward to…

As most of you know, we’ve long bemoaned the three Big Culinary Gaps in Savannah’s Dining Scene: the lack of a French restaurant, a real Chinese restaurant and a great steak house.
As we mentioned last summer, one of those gaps is soon to be filled, with not one but two, steak emporiums–Ruth’s Chris Steak House and the Bull Street Chop House, being built by the owner of Il Pasticcio.  Both have been delayed several times, but both are still in the works and promised in the next FEW months!
