Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse Always Amazes – Ponte Vedra Beach

Posted by: Kristen Calhoun in Restaurant Reviews

ruths-chrisRuth’s Chris is still one of the few places I will order a Cosmopolitan. For the last couple of years we’ve made a Christmas Eve tradition of going to Ruth’s Chris for dinner.It’s a nice way to relax with family before the craziness kicks into high gear.

My husband & I split the harvest salad to start. The combination of greens with the crispness of the well done bacon & the sweetness of the cherries was like a well orchestrated dance across my tongue. The spiced nuts & goat cheese definitely made their appearance known. Certainly ordering that the next time I’m there.

Being a creature of comfort, I usually always go for the filet. Sometimes I’ll change it up with the horseradish crust and/or the shrimp, but the petite filet rarely changes. Until this year. Having tasted one recently & at the advice of my husband, I went for the ribeye and impressed the waiter when I ordered it medium rare. When my sizzling plate arrived with my glorious slice of USDA beef, I was ready to dig in. Armed with my knife & fork, I sliced into the middle. The marbled goodness of a first bite melted on my tongue as I savored the flavor of a well prepared steak.

We had a variety of sides for the table to share: au gratin potatoes, asparagus, creamed spinach, mashed potatoes, broccoli au gratin. And they all disappeared. Not one morsel of a side was left to take home. Ruth’s Chris is one of those ‘special occasion’ places & that’s exactly what the restaurant is: Special.
