To celebrate Valentine's Day, hubby and I chose to have dinner at Ruth's Chris. We had been to one Ruth's Chris in Vegas a couple of years ago but we hadn't tried the Calgary location. We had heard such a range of reviews, we just had to check it out for ourselves.
For Valentine's Day, Ruth's Chris was offering up their date night menu - an appetizer to share, an entree each, a dessert to share and wine for $99. It was a good thing we had reservations because the place was busy! The restaurant, located in the Tower Centre, was on the 2nd floor and had a good view of downtown. Ruth's Chris provided parking in the Tower Centre.
To start, we settled on the mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat. There were four mushrooms and the crab stuffing was pretty good. We were also served garlic bread and cheese bread, both of which were delicious and we had inhaled them long before our steaks arrived.
For our mains, I ordered the 8 oz petit filet and hubby ordered the 12 oz new york strip. The steaks came sizzling to the table in butter, how could that not be good! The petit filet was perfect if you were looking for meat that was soft and melted in your mouth. For flavour, the new york strip was the way to go. By ordering one of each, we had the best of both worlds.
