Iconic Tastes Converge for Six Exclusive Dining Experiences

WINTER PARK, FLA. (February 9, 2017) – Ruth’s Chris Steak House sets the standard in fine dining with the announcement of Ruth’s TasteMaker Dinners, commencing on February 23, 2017. Each offering an exclusive dining experience, six dinners will be hosted on select dates at Ruth’s Chris restaurants nationwide.

Famed tastemaker Ruth Fertel founded Ruth’s Chris Steak House in 1965. Her timeless recipes and traditions earned her the title of “The First Lady of Steak,” and serves as the inspiration behind Ruth’s TasteMaker Dinners where guests will savor unforgettable menus paired with iconic champagne, wine and spirits. “For more than five decades, Ruth’s Chris Steak House has pushed the boundaries in the name of our founder, Ruth Fertel,” said Abdiel Aleman, Vice President of Culinary Development. “Ruth’s TasteMaker Dinners combine her fearless spirit with her commitment to excellence to create an experience unlike any other.”

Ruth’s TasteMaker Dinners begin with cult-favorite, The Prisoner Wine Company. Featuring an eclectic selection of stylistic wines, the five-course dinner menu offers a taste of each of the vintner’s wines: Prisoner, Blindfold, Cuttings, Saldo and Thorn. Ruth’s Chris chefs combined such distinct flavors with an uncompromising menu of Jumbo Lump Crab Salad; Devils on Horseback, a bold taste of dates, dried plum and apricot “bound” by bacon with a soy ginger glaze; Pistachio Crusted Pork Noisettes; Petite Filet Mignon with Horseradish Crust; and, Chocolate Bouchon.

Continuing on select dates throughout the year, Ruth’s TasteMaker Dinners will include more exclusive dining experiences with Daou Vineyards, Chateau Montelena Winery, and an effervescent evening featuring Great Champagnes of the World, among others to be announced.
