Louisiana Restaurant Named 'Best Steakhouse' In America

That's right, according to 24/7 Tempo a chain restaurant beat out all the locally owned steakhouses in the Crescent City.  Here's what they had to say:

Yes, Ruth’s Chris is a chain — a large one, with more than 150 locations, including units in some 21 countries — but this is where it all began, when single mom Ruth Fertel mortgaged her house to buy the 60-seat Chris Steak House. It burned down in a fire in 1976, and when she reopened in a new location, she added her own name to the place. She designed an 1800-degree broiler to cook her steaks and decided to serve them on a platter sizzling with butter. Fertel sold what had become a thriving chain in 1999 and died a few years later, and Ruth’s Chris is now owned by Darden Restaurants (Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, etc.). The USDA prime steaks are still superb, though (the 16-ounce bone-in aged filet is a must), and there’s a special resonance to enjoying them in the town where the whole thing started.


Ruth's Chris Steak House was established on February 27, 1927, by New Orleans entrepreneur Chris Matulich. It was located at 1100 North Broad Street, near the Fair Grounds Race Course, sat 60 people, and had no parking lot. Matulich managed the company for 38 years and sold it six times. Every time it was sold, the business failed, and Matulich bought the restaurant back inexpensively from the previous buyers.
