Ruth’s Chris does a phenomenal job with sides, and their sweet potato casserole is one of their best. A treat for dinner guests, this sweet and savory side dish makes a welcomed appearance at many Ruth’s Chris’ wine pairing dinners.
Their summer event featured cocktail pairings with an eclectic, globally inspired menu. Our favorite drink of the evening – a new riff on the Bees Knees cocktail, with vodka, tequila, lemon, orange blossom water, and honey.
Next up for fall is their “Bordeaux, Burgundy & Bubbles” wine pairing dinner, to be held on Sunday, October 19th.
Save the date, and be sure to make room for a very delicious menu!
