....And you’ll feel so grown up at Jeff Ruby’s, the super-swanky steakhouse that opened this summer on the ground floor of the UBS building, situated on Fourth Avenue North at Union. On a mild October evening, its doors open onto a dining terrace where guests sip cocktails and take in the sounds of its piano bar. Step inside the grand entry and marvel at the glittering swirl of giant chandeliers, the sweep of plush rose banquettes, the ornate dark woods, the art-deco style murals. As you are escorted to your table, your eyes are drawn to the raw bar, an enticing and elaborate display of seafood — oysters, jumbo tiger shrimp and Alaskan red king crab legs jutting out of the ice. Keep looking: There’s a sushi bar, too, where its masters craft lavish rolls.

Last night I was invited to attend a blogger happy hour event at the new Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse in downtown Nashville. I was excited at the opportunity since I had already heard so many great things about the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant; so naturally I jumped at the chance to visit (even though it was our 2nd wedding anniversary). Since the event was right at the end of my work day, I figured “why not?” and stopped by for an hour. I am so glad that I did.

If you didn’t know that Jeff Ruby is a real guy who launched an eponymous steakhouse, you might think that Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse is some sort of Disney creation. The fedora-wearing restaurateur travels between his various restaurant properties in a custom-wrapped luxury bus, a rolling billboard for his brand of high-end dining and excellent customer service. The details of the restaurants' decor seem impossibly over-the-top unless you’ve met Ruby himself and realize that he actually is larger than life. This is the man who gained national attention for banning O.J. Simpson from his Louisville steakhouse during Derby Week, landing himself and his brand on every network’s news and morning shows.

It's American as apple pie, the idiom goes, partly because it just rolls off the tongue right nice. However, if there were a type of food that really typifies the idea of America, it has to be steak: Raised by cowboys, seared on grills and served up in giant slabs befitting a land of plenty. The list below is a expert's rough guide to where you can find some of the best steaks and steakhouses in every state from Maine to Hawaii, and everywhere in between.

CINCINNATI (WKRC) – Local restaurant “The Precinct” hosted a victory dinner on the house for our local Chopped Jr. champion. Nadjah Bray and her family stopped in at The Precinct on Sunday night. Not only will Nadjah shadow cooks at Jeff Ruby's restaurant. She will also be adding a new addition to her family, a therapy dog donated by the American Success Dog Training Academy. Nadjah wanted to use the money she received from Chopped to buy a therapy dog for her family. Her twin brothers have autism and her younger sister has health issues as well.

Though Jeff Ruby made his name in Cincinnati, his Nashville location has established itself as a go-to special celebration location in two months. I love it just for the splendid, carefully designed period decor, but the time travel aspects of the menu are unusual indeed. If exquisite culinary nostalgia has any allure for you, add this one to the bucket list.
