Mastering the formula for a superb steak may seem quite complex, but for Ruth’s Chris Steak House, it is quite simple, as the eatery has honed in and perfected its method for more than 50 years.

To create the sizzling flavors that are synonymous with the restaurant, it begins with the choice of steak. “At Ruth’s Chris Steak House, you’ll always find exceptional steaks, selected from the top 2 percent of the country’s beef and served sizzling-hot,” says director of sales and marketing Emi Espinda.

Lobster Mac & Cheese ($26)

From there comes the cooking process, which Espinda explains: “All steaks are broiled in a 1,800-degree oven and served on sizzling 500 degree plates.”

A prime example of the craft found at the restaurant is the Tomahawk Ribeye ($147), which showcases USDA Prime bone-in 40-ounce ribeye that’s well marbled for peak flavors. The dish is a guest favorite, according to Espinda, and can be shared or enjoyed solo.

In addition to its all-star steaks, the restaurant also offers an extensive variety of delectable appetizers, entrees, salads and more for the taking, as well as an award-winning wine list.

There’s Ahi Poke Martini ($18), an appetizer brimming with ahi, onion, roasted sesame seeds and chili paste mixed together; and as an addition to your meal, try Lobster Mac & Cheese ($26).

Sweet Potato Casserole ($13)

The newest signature side features tender lobster with a three-cheese blend and mild chilies. For something sweeter, indulge in the Sweet Potato Casserole ($13) with a scrumptious pecan crust.

Ruth’s Chris makes for an elegant night served on a “sizzling platter,” and the ideal choice for your birthday celebration, anniversary, romantic dinner or business event. What’s more, stop by for the special three-course dinner that’s served from 5 to 6 p.m. daily at all six restaurants statewide, including two on Oahu: Waterfront Plaza and Waikiki.
