New Location for Ruth’s Chris Steak House
The fine-dining establishment has moved to River Place in Downtown Wilmington.
Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Wilmington moved to its newly constructed location at River Place on N. Water Street in Downtown Wilmington on January 24. The popular fine-dining restaurant continues to offer its exquisite fare in the new space, which features a glamorous main dining room, a sleek wrap-around bar with lounge seating, two private dining rooms designed for private events, and the largest outdoor terrace in the area. The terrace includes a pergola capable of seating up to 80 guests and views of the Cape Fear River and U.S.S. Wilmington. The new restaurant also features a temperature-controlled Wine Tower and decor of rich woods, beautiful brass, crystal and locally inspired nautical elements.
This Wilmington Ruth’s Chris restaurant is the ninth establishment of an independently owned and operated franchise group that was started in 1992 by Steve deCastro. deCastro is one of the largest Ruth‘s Chris franchisees in North America, operating nine restaurants in Maryland, New Jersey and North Carolina.
As part of the pre-opening celebration, Ruth’s Chris in Wilmington hosted a premier dinner to raise money in support of its local nonprofit feature partners — Coastal Horizons and the Willie Stargell Foundation. The restaurant matched donations.
Ruth’s Chris Steak House was founded by Ruth Fertel more than 55 years ago in New Orleans, Louisiana. Diners at Ruth’s Chris experience the highest-quality beef, cuts that are well-marbled and hand-selected for thickness and tenderness. Diners also enjoy fresh seafood, scratch-made side dishes and desserts, craft cocktails and a world-class wine list of more than 300 wines, served with the highest level of hospitality.
The company’s perfected broiling method and seasoning techniques ensure that each cut of USDA Prime beef arrives cooked to perfection and sizzling on a 500-degree plate. Steaks are cut daily and never frozen.
