Ruth’s Chris Steak House
Nominated for Best Steakhouse 51 Comments
After the success of its first Dubai outlet, at The H Hotel, Ruth’s Chris branched out with a second venue at The Address Dubai Marina, giving steak lovers a double dose of its high-end American cuisine. Both venues are decked out in dark, rich hues with crisp white tablecloths that are stylish without being stuffy, while the music issuing from the speakers suggests an upmarket bar rather than a standard diner. Yet from the get-go you’ll notice the American influences: staff are outgoing and chatty in that typical US style, while the menu boasts Stateside favourites such as shrimps, crab cakes and the divine sweet potato casserole. The steaks, slathered in melted butter, are a dieter’s worst nightmare but a carnivore’s guilty pleasure: good value and generously sized, with a flavoursome baste that gives them an added kick. If you can, save some space for dessert – the huge cheesecakes are a particular highlight, and good enough to share (or to take home for later).
