Review of Ruth's Chris Steakhouse

Ruth's Chris Steak House in Weehawken, New Jersey is praised for it's food and known for its cost. Tonight I had the privilege of eating at this steak house.  This is my story: (Did you catch the Law and Order: SVU reference?)

When I pulled up to the restaurant, the valet took my car. I have never used valet parking before, but it seemed as though there was no other convenient option.  Ordinarily, I would mind, but given the frigid temperatures, I was not going to complain about having less of a walk to the restaurant.  I, along with five others, had a reservation, so we were immediately seated while a slew of people offered to check our coats.  Once we were settled in, a waiter presented our menus.  For a steak house, there was a good selection of items.  I settled on the Ruth's Classic, which gave me options for a starter, entree, side, and dessert. 


Steak House Salad with Oil and Vinegar

When the salad was served, they had forgotten the oil and vinegar.  The waiter immediately went to get it when I reminded him, though.  The salad was okay.  I personally prefer a different type of salad.  The portion was good though.  


Filet Mignon 

The filet mignon was amazing. However, it was slightly more red than I expected for a medium cooked piece.  The plate that it was served on was 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  So eat this with caution!


Mashed Potatoes

These were probably the creamiest mashed potatoes I have ever eaten.  They were, in short, AH-MAY-ZING.  They had just a hint of garlic, and were so good.  Ruth's Chris should make a version heavier on the garlic.  They would probably win awards for their mashed potatoes.  No joke. 


Mini Chocolate Sin Cake with Assorted Fruit

While the desert was extremely tiny, it followed a rather large meal.  I did not think I would have room for desert after its predecessors, but I could not resist.  This cake did not contain any flour.  The result is a cake that has the consistency of a very creamy fudge.  This was so good.  The fruit was a perfect complement.
