Set to open in Q2 2012, the second opening is announced as the brand celebrates its third successful year of operation on the UAE, and will cement plans for further expansion in the region.
Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse is an all American concept that has grown from Founder Ruth Fertel’s original vision for a neighbourhood steakhouse in New Orleans in 1965. Ruth’s Chris first came to Dubai in 2008, and was an instant success with power players and the fashion set alike. Translated for the Middle Eastern market, but staying faithful to its roots, Ruth’s Chris Dubai offers an innovative yet traditional steakhouse experience, revolving around the Ruth’s Chris signature steaks, cooked with a unique ‘broiling technique’ at 1,000 degrees Celsius, and served to guests on a theatrical sizzling hotplate.
Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse at The Address Dubai Marina will retain the discreet and elegant ambience of the One Sheikh Zayed venue, but will occupy a larger site to underline the full capabilities of the kitchen, front of house and bar teams. Comprising just under 14,000 square feet, the property will afford atmospheric views over the Marina and will include both a restaurant and dedicated lounge area, with an additional outdoor space where fine cigars and after-dark drinks can be savoured by connoisseurs.
Executive Head Chef Paul De Visser, who has proved his credentials with Ruth’s Chris since joining the opening team in 2009, will run the kitchen. Under Paul’s direction, the restaurant will continue to offer the very finest quality steaks, complimented by a selection of entrees and desserts, including the decadent Chocolate Sin cake, and founder Ruth Fertel’s much loved Bread and Butter pudding.
Pre and post dinner drinks will showcase Ruth’s Chris’ heritage through a selection of classic American cocktails, including a Sidecar, Manhattan and a wide range of the best Martini’s in town, created by ‘Martini Maestro’ Murphee Evangelista.
Of the opening and regional expansion, Michael Szczepanski, General Manager comments, “We are extremely pleased to confirm the opening of our Middle Eastern flagship, in a space that will allow us to really communicate the compelling aspects of the Ruth’s Chris story and underline the capabilities of our kitchen and team. The Address Dubai Marina is a perfect location in terms of attracting both international tourists and fashionistas alike, and we look forward to maintaining our standards of excellence in Uptown Dubai.”
