Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Metairie Turns 40


March 23, 2012

Metairie location reaches a milestone and celebrates with an Anniversary Wine Dinner
Featuring a lagniappe pour of 1972 Robert Mondavi Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

Orlando, FL - In 1972, Ruth Fertel opened a second location of Ruth’s Chris Steak House marking the first expansion to Veterans Boulevard in Metairie. Forty years later, the restaurant remains in its original location as a mainstay and continues the tradition of providing the highest quality USDA Prime grade steaks and exceptional service. In celebration of this milestone, Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Metairie will host a special 40th Anniversary Wine Dinner on Sunday, April 22, at 6pm. The cost is $125 per person (exclusive of tax and gratuity) and reservations are required.

The 4-course menu will highlight Ruth’s Chris Steak House classics, some of which are no longer available, such as, Sliced Tomato and Onion Salad and White Chocolate Bread Pudding. The 40th Anniversary celebration will also feature a very special lagniappe wine pairing with the entree course, 1972 Robert Mondavi Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. “This anniversary dinner is a celebration and a thank you to our loyal guests, who we call family, that have allowed us to successfully serve sizzling steaks for 40 years,” stated Ruth’s Chris Steak House General Manager, Mike Miller, “We are also excited to pop open 1972 Robert Mondavi Cabernet - a wine made in the year we opened - as a way to say cheers to how far we’ve come and to another great 40 years.”

For the entire month of April, the menu will be visually redesigned paying homage to the original look and feel. Upon being seated, guests will receive a 1972-inspired, vintage menu with traditional signature items. Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Metairie is located at 3633 Veterans Boulevard, Metairie, LA 70002.
