Here in Grand Rapids we have Michigan's only five diamond restaurant, the 1913 Room.  It is located inside the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel downtown.
 
They have just decided to close it and instead open a Ruth's Chris steakhouse.
 
*sigh*   But it must be OK!  They're offering current employees jobs there, and one of the private dining rooms will be named the 1913 Room.  Jesus wept.

Ruth’s Chris also will give the hotel a chance to project a more contemporary, more casual image than The 1913 Room, which at one time required men to wear jackets and still does not permit denim in the main dining room.

 
I fail to see how this is an improvement, myself.  You don't wear denim to a five diamond restaurant.
