  • 1/8/20
WINTER PARK, Fla., Jan. 7, 2020 – Ruth’s Chris Steak House, known for its unmatched dining experience and its steaks served on 500-degree sizzling plates, announces its 2020 TasteMaker Dinner Series with the biggest names in wine and spirits. TasteMaker Dinners are five-course meals, hand-crafted by the Ruth’s Chris executive chefs, with a glass of wine or a cocktail expertly paired to complement each dish. Starting in February, Ruth’s Chris begins its largest lineup of TasteMaker Dinners to date, totaling 10 “can’t-miss” dinners throughout the year. 

“We are proud to work with some of the most respected names in wine and spirits, and we look forward to having the opportunity to showcase their drinks with our exclusive TasteMaker Dinner menus,” said Chef Abdiel Aleman, vice president of culinary development for Ruth’s Chris. “A truly outstanding experience is crafted from the smallest details. That is why Ruth’s Chris pours their heart and soul into each TasteMaker Dinner to make sure the chef’s passion is infused into every course and resonates with guests.”

Each TasteMaker Dinner menu takes approximately four months to finalize, as the culinary team sets aside time to taste the wines and cocktails and develop each unique five-course menu based on flavors that complement each other. The culinary team at Ruth’s Chris is known for going beyond what is expected, also drawing inspiration from each winery’s history and origin, to deliver a one-night only menu that has never been experienced before. 

The outstanding lineup of wineries for the TasteMaker Dinner Series includes: Rombauer Vineyards; Justin Winery; Grgich Hills Estate; Cakebread Cellars; Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars; Orin Swift Cellars; Veuve Clicquot; and Caymus Vineyards. Two dinners will also feature renowned distilleries alongside distinguished wineries: The Prisoner Wine Company together with High West Distillery whiskey; and Tito’s Handmade Vodka with Rodney Strong wines.

For the first time, guests who are interested in experiencing all 10 of these legendary dining experiences can purchase the TasteMaker Club dining card. The commemorative metal card takes guests on an experiential journey with access to all 10 dinners and the unmatched opportunity to immerse in some of the country’s finest cuisines, wines and spirits. Additionally, each dining card purchase includes an additional $150 to dine any time and a voucher for a special tour of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellar in Napa Valley. Available until the TasteMaker Series begins on February 27, the dining card invites guests to enjoy unique dishes and pairings throughout the year, creating memories around the dinner table that will last a lifetime.
