What’s the beef? Ruth’s Chris uses USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) prime beef. Apparently, only two per cent of the entire US meat market is USDA prime beef – it’s the best-quality meat available in the States.
Preparation: This is the only venue in Dubai to use a Montague broiler, which cooks at 1,000˚C, searing the meat instantly without letting juices escape.
The choice cut: Those who like their steak lean should go for the petite fillet 8oz (Dhs198), while those who want a bit more flavour should try the New York strip, which has a full-bodied texture slightly firmer than a rib-eye (Dhs232 for 12oz; Dhs292 for 16oz).
