Ruth’s Chris Celebrates 50th Anniversary Cocktail Dinner Party

Ruth’s Chris Steak House began as a small, 60-seat restaurant in New Orleans. Thanks to the hard work and determination of our fearless founder, Ruth Fertel, the restaurant eventually grew into a huge success, with restaurants located across the country.

No matter how much we continue to grow, the Ruth’s Chris team still remains in touch with our roots. The Ruth’s Chris family of restaurants still holds the same core ideals of customer service and quality as our most important values.

Celebrating 50 Years of Sizzling Steak

The world has changed immensely over the past 50 years, but one constant that has remained is our guests’ love for the signature sizzling steak at Ruth’s Chris. Because of our continued commitment to quality, we have developed a loyal following of customers throughout our five decades in the restaurant business. To commemorate our half-century anniversary, we wanted to thank our customers, friends, and Ruth’s Chris family for their many years of support with an evening of stylish—and delicious—celebrations.

1965 Vintage Cocktail Dinner Party at Ruth’s Chris Steak House

In order to celebrate this important milestone in Ruth’s Chris style, we recently held a 1965 Cocktail Dinner Party. During this special evening, we toasted to our founder, Ruth Fertel, by enjoying some featured menu items, like The Gold Standard Cocktail, our signature 50th Anniversary drink. This specialty cocktail included Prosecco, Bulleit Bourbon, Cointreau and house-made cardamom syrup.

In addition to signature cocktails, our guests enjoyed a decadent five-course meal. The feast began with a Fresh Kabocha Squash and Garbanzo Bean Salad and culminated in a Filet Mignon served sizzling with a Cabernet Sauvignon, Sherry and Port Onion Reduction, followed by a Chocolate Espresso Torte.

To Another 50 Years of Ruth’s Chris Sizzling Steak

This unforgettable evening gave everyone involved a chance to reflect back on the 50 years of success behind us, and also to look forward to what we hope to be another 50 years ahead.

Whether you have been a lifelong fan or are new to Ruth’s Chris, we hope you will join us soon to experience our signature steakhouse style in one of our award-winning restaurants.
