Dining at Ruth’s Chris Steak House

Recently, I had the opportunity of dining at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Boston.  Boston is one of my favorite places in the entire world, and I am always thrilled to experience their restaurant scene.  I had been to a Ruth’s Chris once– in San Diego– but fast-forward many years later to check out the Ruth’s Chris Steak House in downtown Boston.  It’s in a unique location in their old city hall building- near Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market.

It turns out that Ruth’s Chris Steak House is celebrating their 50th year anniversary this year.  50 years in business!  History writes that Ruth Fertel bought Chris Steak House in New Orleans in 1965 to help put her teenage sons through college.  She had no experience in the restaurant business but learned how to run the business and developed the perfect method for broiling steaks (using an 1,800° broiler!)  Ruth’s Chris became the first franchised fine dining establishment in 1976.

Here’s a peek at my dining experience at Ruth’s Chris Steak House- which happened to be on the day that my husband and I were celebrating our 20 year anniversary of being married :)  >>

Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Completely customizable Smashed Sweet Potatoes with their tender inside and crispy outside make the perfect easy side or delectable snack!

 Smashed Sweet Potatoes- an easy and delicious side dish recipe!

I am a long time fan of smashed potatoes.  With a just a few simple ingredients and mostly make-ahead technique, these morsels are a go-to company side at my house that everyone always raves about.  Now, with Fall in full swing (well, I’m trying to make it feel like Fall with food because its still in the 80s/90s here in San Diego!),  I was eager to try this same simple technique on sweet potatoes and the results were magical!

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Cake

We decided to invite friends for brunch last weekend.  And the most important part of our brunch was the dessert, of course:  Caramel Apple Cheesecake Cake

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Cake

I wanted to create something with an autumn vibe.  And since I haven’t created a new flavor of cheesecake cake for such a long time (my readers have been requesting a new one!), it was time to make that happen.  This dessert has two layers of a moist and delicious apple cake with a complete layer of cheesecake tucked in between.  The whole thing is covered with caramel frosting to create the “caramel apple” theme.  It’s a must-make dessert for an autumn brunch or a holiday meal.
