Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse born in New Orleans, New place opens in the Warehouse District!

     The Warehouse District recently welcomed Ruth’s Chris Steak to a new home at 525 Fulton street adjoining the Harrah’s Hotel.  The steakhouse was founded in New Orleans by Ruth Fertel a New Orleans native in 1965 when she bought Chris’s Steak House.  This single mother with two kids eventually grew Ruth’s Chris into the largest Luxury Steak house in the United States.  The Ruth’s Chris Steak Houses eventually became public. Ruth Fertel was a great benefactor to South Louisiana giving of herself and her self made wealth to many worthy causes.  

      The headquarters was in the Metro New Orleans area till Katrina struck almost 3 years ago when the present CEO of the company.  Mr Miller immediately cut and ran after the storm to Orlando rather than rebuild with the rest of us.  Tends to take some of the taste out of the steaks.   However emotion aside its nice to have another place open in the Warehouse District that welocmes back another New Orleans favorite.

    The Fulton Street area will continue to develop.  More places will open which makes the neighborhood all that better.  Another great place to put on my walking tour of the downtown area of New Orleans.  Just thought that idea up and can certainly do a mega post on that subject.  “all with a mile” or something like that.
