For carnivores, nothing tops Ruth’s Chris Steakhouses’ USDA Prime steak cooked at 800 degrees and then served on a sizzling 500 degree plate with brown butter. In 1965, Ruth Fertel purchased Chris Steak House to put her kids through college and over 40 years later, the brand has reached incredible success with restaurants across the globe. Del Mar’s Ruth’s Chris offers up stellar steaks and service with impressive consistency. Customers can try the sizzling blue crabcakes or seared ahi tuna to start, then order up the steak of their dreams, from filet mignon and porterhouses to the gargantuan cowboy ribeye with perfect marbling. Side options include potatoes au gratin and creamed spinach. Beyond great steaks, there’s barbecued shrimp sautéed New Orleans-style, juicy lamb chops and fresh Maine lobster. Customers who still have room for dessert can try the caramelized banana cream pie or bread pudding in whisky sauce.
