Ruth’s Chris Steak House on Sept. 28 announced it opened its first location in Short Hills—its seventh in the Garden State, and its 150th space overall. The 56-year-old restaurant is now feeding guests at the Mall at Short Hills on the lower level near Neiman Marcus.
Ruth’s Chris’s new 8,300-square-foot restaurant features two main dining rooms, an expansive bar with lounge seating and two private dining rooms designed for large groups.
The décor, inspired by the area’s high-end fashion and inviting atmosphere, creates a unique space perfectly suited to accommodate any occasion, including business meetings, family celebrations and milestones, and more.
“The Mall at Short Hills is a major shopping and entertainment destination for so many in the region, and we are honored to host the local community in the months and years to come in a way that only Ruth’s Chris can,” said Michael Krywucki, general manager for Ruth’s Chris in Short Hills, in a prepared statement. “Our newest location is a place to gather for all of life’s celebrations, no matter how large or small, while serving as the perfect place for an intimate date night or happy hour with friends.”
As part of the pre-opening celebration, Ruth’s Chris hosted a special dinner with community leaders, business owners and Ruth’s Chris executives, while raising money for the restaurant’s local charity partner and leading anti-hunger organization–Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
Through Oct. 27, guests can increase Ruth’s Chris’ donation made to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. Upon receiving their check, guests will also receive a gold doubloon they can drop into a vessel by the hostess stand, representing the additional contribution the restaurant will make on their behalf.
“We are delighted to be opening our newest New Jersey location, and we look forward to welcoming our guests to enjoy a world-class steak house experience,” said Cheryl Henry, president and chief executive officer of Ruth’s Hospitality Group Inc.
