Yelp Elite Meat Up! @ Ruth's Chris Steakhouse
Now that the weather is cooling down in Chicago, it's time to start plumping up for the winter, and what better way to do this than check out the city's newly remodeled Ruth's Chris Steakhouse? Guests arrived at this intimate "meat" up and were guided, along the shiny new bar, to a room set up with not one, but two, food stations. Chef Jorge sliced up melt-in-your-mouth beef tenderloin at the carving station, where Yelpers could create their own sliders with accompanying mustard and horseradish sauces. And did we mention the passed appetizer trays? Partygoers sampled mini crab cakes, beef wellingtons, and seared tuna served on fresh cucumber. The second table featured a spread of fruits, cheeses, and much raved about mini key lime cheesecakes were a great sweet way to round out this feast.
Bartenders mixed up delicious libations, including Ruth's Chris' signature pomegranate martini, that turned non-martini drinkers into enthusiasts. A stellar waitstaff and management team were on hand to make sure that everyone was well taken care of, and questions such as "Why is it called Ruth's Chris Steakhouse?" were answered. We even got an exclusive tour of the redecorated private party rooms upstairs. The night ended with a raffle of gift certificates generously provided by the restaurant.
