Single mothers face incredible life challenging decisions daily.
Ruth Fertel, a New Orleans divorced mother, faced a dilemma in her life. She could not afford to send her boys to college in her situation. What she did was borrow enough money to open up a small 35-seat restaurant. Today that restaurant is called Ruth's Chris Steak House.
Appetizers here are a true testament to good food. Mushrooms Stuffed With Crabmeat will create lasting memories. The Blue Crab Cakes are the real thing.
Seared Ahi Tuna is the pride of Chef Jess Ostlund, one bite and you are hooked forever. Louisiana Seafood Gumbo has been passed on generation after generation. This soup has the spirit of people who treasure life and happiness.
Steaks are cooked at 1800F and served sizzling on a heated plate. The Cowboy Ribeye challenges the hardiest westerner. The fillet is so tender, who needs a knife?
If ever there is a dish that tasted like meat, it is the Grilled Portobello Mushroom. On the side you can order broccoli and fresh spinach. Their Fried Onion Rings make you wonder how an onion can taste so good!
Desserts are all homemade with emphasis made right there. You must have the Key Lime Pie or the Chocolate Sin Cake. It will make you smile all day.
Ruth Fertel, you live on in your spirit and hospitality. Each bite of food served is a tribute to a woman who loved her family.
