Part of us has always wondered why a chain like Ruth’s Chris Steak House perennially sits atop OpenTable's most popular restaurant list alongside the likes of the Slanted Door and Kokkari, and it would appear that, even with a $50 gift card in hand, a very blunt Patricia Unterman wonders the same thing: "Wine is overpriced, as are cocktails, such as the $11.25 Chopin martinis. In the end, the cost of this dinner for two with one glass of wine and one cocktail came to more than $200 with tip. Is a dinner at Ruth’s Chris worth it? No. A $50 credit puts it in the ballpark, but only if you hold yourself to one glass of wine or a cocktail." [SFE]
