December 07, 2012

Early next year Ruth’s Chris Steak House to open at Harrah’s Las Vegas


Orlando, FL (Oct 22, 2012) — Center-strip resort Harrah’s Las Vegas has partnered with Ruth’s Chris Steak House, a restaurant known for exceptional signature sizzling steaks and upscale dining experiences around the world, to bring the first of its kind to the Las Vegas Strip.  Ruth’s Chris Steak House at Harrah’s is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2013.  With locations in Harrah’s New Orleans and Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina, the Harrah’s Las Vegas location will mark the extension of the Caesars Entertainment—Ruth’s Chris Steak House relationship.  The new restaurant will inhabit the space formerly occupied by The Range, which will close Nov. 11, 2012.

“Ruth’s Chris Steak House is one of the most recognized steak houses in the world, and for good reason,” says Harrah’s Las Vegas president Rich Mazer. “It delivers fantastic food with welcoming and friendly service.  I’m excited to bring this exceptional restaurant to an ideal venue, overlooking the lights and excitement of the Las Vegas Strip.”

The Las Vegas location will boast the restaurant’s signature sizzling steaks in a setting with unmatched panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip. Menu items will include USDA Prime steaks, appetizers and delectable desserts, all complemented by an award-winning wine list and handcrafted cocktails. Ruth’s Chris Steak House, founded in New Orleans nearly 50 years ago, offers a comfortable yet elegant atmosphere in which to enjoy celebrations with family and friends or conduct meetings with colleagues or clients.

Located on the second floor of Harrah’s Las Vegas, floor-to-ceiling window will encase the dining room offering the stunning views of the Las Vegas Strip, which will be the natural focal point of the room. The two private dining rooms will be enclosed in glass to take advantage of this vantage point.  The almost 400 seats will be surrounded by a rich yet modern setting showcasing classic Las Vegas images overlaid with the New Orleans color and flavor from the historic restaurant’s roots.  Designers Interplan, LLC have incorporated a multitude of interesting fabrics and design elements to create an inviting space.

“We look forward to our restaurant opening in Harrah’s on the Las Vegas Strip and the expansion of the relationship with Caesars Entertainment,” stated Michael P. O’Donnell, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Ruth’s Hospitality Group, Inc. “We will be proud to serve our Las Vegas guests heartfelt hospitality alongside signature sizzling steaks.”
