Deal alert: Ruth's Chris Steakhouse lunch

Looking for good deals at steakhouses, I heard about the lunch prix-fixe at Ruth's Chris from one of my colleagues and decided to check it out. For a little less than $29, they offer a 2 1/2 course with a pretty interesting selection of dishes. 2 1/2 is an odd number and you will soon understand what the 1/2 is...

The place was empty when I went with only few tables occupied. Good! That way it was quiet, the noise level at steakhouse (restaurants in general) being sometimes high. They started off by bringing some bread with whipped butter, a simple bread basket far from the mix of bread that lots of these places have.

I then got my appetizer. I opted for the lobster bisque that was quite good, creamy, with few lobster lumps in it (just a few).

But what I was really looking forward to was the ribeye. First, I love this place because the steaks are cooked in butter and come on a 500 degree plate, sizzling. So, not only you get your nose filled with a fantastic smell, but the sizzling is such a nice music to the ears that you cannot resist looking at the dishes passing by to see what they are. I ordered the steak medium-rare and this 10oz ribeye was perfectly cooked. It was tender, with a slight char on top, juicy and was very flavorful. I admit that it is one of the best steaks I had for such a good price.

With the steaks, you can choose between mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. I was able to try both and liked them.

Last was the 1/2 course: chocolate bark that I ate with an espresso.
