Restaurant Week 2018 - Ruth's Chris Steakhouse

So right now is Restaurant Week until February 9th. I have to say that I am on a fence when it comes to Restaurant Week: it is a great event, but not all restaurants are embracing the principle that is for diners to discover restaurants and, in a way, want to come back to try their regular menu. No, some restauranteurs simply lower the quality of their food: too bad. But I have to say that Ruth's Chris is not like that: first of all, they have a delicious lunch menu that they serve all year long, crafting a menu for restaurant week is not too far fetched. For $29, they propose an appetizer, an entree and a dessert. For appetizer, I went for the lobster bisque, a small portion, but quite good, nicely creamy.

For the entree, I chose the filet mignon, sad that they did not offer the sublime ribeye that is on their lunch menu. Anyway, the filet was succulent: cooked medium-rare, it came in a 500 degree plate that was sizzling, the butter still cooking the tender and tasty meat.

As sides, I tried their creamed spinach and mashed potatoes, both being perfectly made.

Last was dessert: it was a mini cheesecake with chocolate pecan bark. That was so good, I wish it was a bigger portion. It was creamy, light and not too sweet.

Ruth's Chris proposes a delicious Restaurant Week menu that I definitely recommend: for $29, you get a succulent meal, with a good piece of meat that will make you want to go back for sure!

Enjoy (I did)!
