WINTER PARK, Fla., March 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ruth's Chris Steak House is bringing its timeless American steak house food and signature "sizzle" to downtown Reno later this year. The restaurant will become the signature steakhouse in Silver Legacy Resort Casino, owned by Eldorado Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERI) and the Carano family, as part of Eldorado Resorts' $90 million renovation across its Reno properties.
Don Carano, founder of Eldorado Resorts, was known for blending family values with a modern business sense and quickly grew his brand from a single property to become one of the largest regional gaming operators in the country. Ruth's Chris founder, Ruth Fertel, also shared a similar business approach. Her values and hard work laid the foundation of success for Ruth's Chris Steak House, now a global brand owned by Ruth's Hospitality Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: RUTH).
"Much like the Carano family's business, Ruth's Chris is focused on taking care of people with gracious and attentive service. We look forward to being part of the Reno community and welcoming our guests to enjoy a world-class steakhouse experience," said Cheryl Henry, President and Chief Operating Officer of Ruth's Hospitality Group, Inc.
The Silver Legacy Resort Casino location will be Ruth's Chris first steak house in Northern Nevada. Reno's dynamic economic growth made the location choice a strategic fit for Ruth's Hospitality Group. Ruth's Chris will offer its Renoguests a place to relax and be indulged from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave, ensuring a memorable experience.
"Ruth's Chris is an excellent addition for our guests and a wonderful fit for our brand as we share similar values. We look forward to making Ruth's a part of our family in our newly renovated Silver Legacy Resort Casino this fall," said Gary Carano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Eldorado Resorts, Inc.
Renowned for its steak, Ruth's Chris specializes in custom-aged USDA Prime steaks expertly prepared and served on 500-degree sizzling hot plates. Beyond signature steaks, the made-from-scratch sides are prepared from Ruth's original recipes and are perfectly portioned to share. The new menu will also offer a variety of seafood options, soups, salads and decadent desserts all sourced from the freshest ingredients available.
Ruth's Chris also will bring its award-winning spirits program to the new location with a wine list that features over 200 labels, premium wines by the glass and hand-crafted cocktails. The dynamic bar area will have unique menu offerings and drink specials that will encourage guests to sip and stay a while.
The comfortably elegant restaurant design will seat approximately 250 guests. Flexible private dining space will be a part of the design, providing the option of an intimate dining experience to celebrate special occasions or host business meetings.
