Ruth's Chris Steak House reopening in its new location on January 27


It was back in 2009 when Ruth's Chris Steak House, a national chain of beef emporiums, shuttered its downtown Denver space at 1445 Market Street, an address that's now occupied by Chloe. At the time, the shrine to steak had defaulted on taxes owed to the City of Denver, which resulted in an auction, at which everything -- all the fixtures and furnishings -- were auctioned off to the highest bidder, the monies of which went to satisfy the steakhouse's grandiose debt. Now, more than four years later, the Florida-based chain is reopening in Denver, under new management and ownership, in the Denver Dry Goods building at 707 15th Street, less than a mile from its original location.

The behemoth, 10,000-square-foot space, which ballyhoos a lounge area, a modern, wood-paneled dining room, three event spaces, a gleaming new kitchen spearheaded by chef Jacob Cook, and an indoor valet parking garage, will be open seven nights a week and also feature a happy hour from 4 to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

"We're delighted to be rejoining the Denver community," says Michael O'Donnell, CEO of Ruth's Hospitality Group. "We look forward to reconnecting with long-time friends and new guests, all while carrying on the the legacy of our founder, Ruth Fertel, by serving supreme sizzling steaks and heartfelt hospitality," he adds.

If you've never been to a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, its claim to fame is in the sizzle: Its USDA Prime steaks are delivered on scalding-hot plates, hissing with butter. Arteries, be damned.

What that tax debt 100% satisfied?

The various Brazilian Churrascarias put out much better cuts of meat, with more variety and flavor, and for a far lower price point than these pompous overpriced a-la-carte faux-country club chains ever did or ever will.

The only people who ever ate there were Pretentious Big $$ Corporate Clowns on a Company Expense account.

I've been to Ruth's Chris in San Diego many times, but never went here.  I'll visit the new place here when it opens.


Hope they learned from last time. The service was arrogant and the food average

@DonkeyHotayI often wondered what kind of trash went to the all you can eat meat buffets. 

Do you put on your nice sweatpants for a feast like that?

WillieStortz topcommenter

@mastermeatI always considered Ruth Chris the Applebees of steak house.

If you found Ruth Chris arrogant you would probably be completely belittled by actual nice place like The Palm.

DonkeyHotay topcommenter

@mastermeat ... that faux pompous arrogance was part of their pretentious "ambiance" ... the equivalent of "hipster" for the snobby country-club Cherry Hills demographic.

DonkeyHotay topcommenter

@WillieStortz ... not to worry, those Churrascarias aren't the low rent buffets you pretend to disdain, they bring the food tableside, so lazy turds like you don't have to work up a sweat feeding yourself.

Bon Appétit !
