I have not been to a Ruth's Chris, but maybe to put it in perspective, it is one of those high-end steak houses in the vein of Morton's, Capitol Grille, Smith & Wollensky and Peter Luger (and I'm hesitant to put the independent PL in with that crowd) that caters to the business expense account crowd. There's a reason they advertise in the airline in-flight magazines. In the days of smoking I'd expect to see a lot of cigars and maybe a humidor. I'd still expect lots of big wines and brandys. As such I would expect everything to be high-end, ala carte, and pricey. In a major city, expect to drop $50+ a head before drinks and the sky's the limit.
Boston has been flooded with these in the past decade or so with most of the major chains establishing a foothold. Morton's has been here longer and was looking a bit tatty when I was there about a year and a half ago. Capitol Grille came out of Providence and, I believe, made their first expansions in Boston and the suburbs.
Smith & Wollensky and Ruth's Chris made their moves when they could find very attractive historic locations which would attract a wallet-bearing clientele just to be in the building. S&W is in "The Castle," a beautiful Victorian-era armory (legend has it that the Brahmins built it as a buffer to discourage the Irish and Italian immigrants in the South End from revolt) in the lower Back Bay, close to the downtown business district and good hotels and shopping.
Ruth's Chris is the latest addition and they have been open that they waited until they could find the right property. They've got Old City Hall downtown, an elegant Second-Empire Beaux-Arts manse near shopping, government and financial districts. For many years it was the home of Boston's leading French restaurant, Maison Robert.
Personally, I will enjoy any of these places when the company is paying for it, and preferably when my host knows his wines.
