WINTER PARK, Fla. November 2, 2018 -- Ruth’s Chris Steak House is bringing its timeless American steak house food and “sizzle” to downtown Oklahoma City. Set to open in 2020, the restaurant will become the signature steakhouse inside the historic First National Center, which is undergoing a $247-million renovation.
“We are delighted to be opening our second Oklahoma location, particularly in such an iconic building like the First National Center. We look forward to welcoming our guests to enjoy a world-class steakhouse experience,” said Cheryl Henry, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ruth’s Hospitality Group, Inc.
Renowned for its steak, Ruth’s Chris specializes in custom-aged USDA Prime steaks expertly prepared and served on 500-degree sizzling hot plates. The made-from-scratch sides are deliciously inspired and perfectly portioned to share. The menu will also offer a variety of seafood options, soups, salads and decadent desserts all sourced from the freshest ingredients available.
Ruth’s Chris will bring its award-winning wine and spirits program to the new location with a wine list that features over 200 labels, premium wines by the glass and specialty hand-crafted cocktails. The dynamic bar will have unique menu offerings and drink specials that will encourage guests to sip and stay a while. Both large and inviting, the bar will serve as an ideal meeting place.
The restaurant design will capitalize on the building’s grandeur and existing historical elements. These elegant surroundings will offer Oklahoma City guests a place to relax and be indulged from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave, ensuring a memorable experience. Flexible private dining space will provide the option of an intimate dining experience to celebrate special occasions or host business meetings.
This dynamic renovation of one of Oklahoma City’s most iconic buildings, championed by Cornerstone Development, made the location choice a strategic fit for Ruth’s Hospitality Group. The beautiful 32-story building plans to be the home of a Marriott Autograph hotel with 148 rooms, in addition to 192 luxury apartments.
“We’re excited that Ruth’s Chris, the most respected upscale steak house brand in the world, is expanding into the Oklahoma City market,” said Gary Brooks, President and Chief Operating Officer of Cornerstone Development. “First National Center will be the perfect home in which to serve up their signature steaks and legendary service. The Ruth’s Chris announcement is an important stride toward completing our redevelopment and making The National Hotel one of the most popular destinations in the region.”
