Finished work for Ruth's Chris

Project: Ruth's Chris

This was a complete renovation of the 1913 Room and Grill at 1913 into the national steak house chain Ruth's Chris. The layout of the 200-seat restaurant, which includes a bar, is designed to give privacy. At the same time, it is surprisingly resourceful as a meeting space; up to three private dining rooms can become one to seat 70 people, and have the latest media and satellite technologies on hand. The décor clearly supports an impactful experience: bold and unexpected, with luxurious modernity. This is not like any other Ruth's Chris Steak House.
