Yesterday, I had the opportunity to experience dining at Ruth's Chris Steak House. We have a recently opened one in Durham and the interior was stunning. It still had the nice new wood and carpet smell too.
Steak House Salad - I chose the vinaigrette dressing...it was a salad, nothing grand about it.
Followed by our main selection: Filet Mignon, Baked Potato and Fresh Steamed Broccoli. The filet came sizzling out of the kitchen and had an awesome flavor and tenderness. I did notice the menu said "corn-fed" beef, which made me second guess if I should be ordering it (since watching Food, Inc I know "grass-fed" is what I should be looking for), but I didn't think the chicken or salmon were likely to have been raised in much better conditions...so I went with it. The baked potato was very bland and basic...same for the broccoli.
Dessert Selection: Chocolate Sin Cake...I wish I had gotten the cheesecake. The chocolate was too much for me, I only had a few bites.
Overall, I was quite dissapointed. I think I am completely over chain restaurants...I have become spoiled by the fabulous local chefs and produce here in Durham.
