Table for two: Ruth’s Chris Steak House

With warm reds and earthy tones, Ruth’s Chris Steak House in The Address, Dubai Marina, is a class apart. By Vineetha Menon

While the restaurant boasts an impressive selection of mains, it’s the Lounge area that manages to entice with its selection of fresh, flavourful seafood and meat fare that are meant to be shared.

The usual suspects of Tuna Tartar and Crab Salad will no doubt satisfy, but the Oyster Shooters that features oysters atop a Gazpacho made with green onions, yuzu pepper, red chillis and a fresh quail egg, is something else. So is the Calamari with its tangy Asian flavours and deliciously sticky Sesame Teriyaki Beef Skewers.

But the food is only half the experience at Ruth’s Chris and, thankfully, it is complemented by a fine range of mixed drinks, amiable service and smooth mood music. Even on weeknights you’ll find this place filled with people who have stopped by for light bites and conversation, which makes it a welcome change from other establishments around town.

With its location in Dubai Marina, Ruth’s Chris Steak House is ideal for both catching up with friends after work or entertaining clients outside the boardroom.
