It’s expensive. Its decor is over-the-top. It’s Jeff Ruby’s Columbus steakhouse

By JD Malone The Columbus Dispatch  Posted Dec 8, 2017 at 10:54 AM Updated Dec 8, 2017 at 2:06 PM Years ago, at one of the many auctions that steakhouse developer Jeff Ruby patrols for flourishes and embellishments, he came across a couple of stained-glass panels featuring buckeyes. “It’s 100 years old,” Ruby said of the glass artwork. “I bought it in case I ever did a place in Columbus.” Now, those stained-glass buckeyes have a home — at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse Downtown. And some home it is. Ruby spent about $5 million to rehab 89 E. Nationwide Blvd., which was once home to several other restaurants — 89 Fish and Grill and a Damon’s among them. The work included enclosing the former patio space, adding a basement dining room called the Cellar, and decorating the sp...

Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse: Opulence is byword for restaurant

By GARY SEMAN JR.  THISWEEKNEWS.COM  Nov 27, 2017  Don’t ask Jeff Ruby how much he spent on his namesake restaurant in Columbus. “We don’t know,” said the founder of Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment, a small but well-known restaurant group based in Cincinnati. “I had an unlimited budget and I exceeded it,” he said. Opulence is the byword for Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse, scheduled to open Friday, Dec. 1, at 89 E. Nationwide Blvd. in downtown Columbus. It seems Ruby spared no expense on the 10,000-square-foot space, which offers numerous ornate -- and expensive, Ruby said -- fixtures, including antique mirrors, a panoply of sparkling chandeliers, stained glass, red-velvet upholstery and old-fashioned, high-end light fixtures. For the serious American omnivore, the urban-steakhouse concept long has been cons...

Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse Columbus at 89 E. Nationwide Blvd. – the Cincinnati restaurateur's sixth restaurant – will open on Dec. 1.  "It's a great city with people who have been asking us to open since 1981, when we opened the Precinct," Ruby told me. "People from Columbus have been supporting our restaurants. Half the (Ohio State) football team is from Cincinnati. The back and forth traffic of people who have business in Columbus and live in Cincinnati or vice versa, there's a nexus between these two cities that's quite visible." The Columbus steakhouse occupies 10,000 square feet in a former 89 Fish & Grill. Originally Ruby thought the s...

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - A big Thanksgiving feast isn’t easy to prepare, especially for firefighters just getting off a 24-hour shift.

Jeff Ruby Reinvents The American Steakhouse

Fusion cuisine and molecular gastronomy are relatively new, but the steakhouse has been with us forever. Chop houses were ubiquitous in both Colonial America and Elizabethan England, and slabs of roasted meat have been the centerpiece of communal meals since families dwelt in caves. Until recently, the American steakhouse hadn’t changed much in over a century. Their predictability was a large part of their appeal: the comfortable atmosphere of a men’s club served as the backdrop for shellfish appetizers and huge steaks. By the late 20th century California Cabernet had replaced whiskey as the drink of choice, and astronomical prices were supported by a steady stream of expense accounts. Today a diner is more likely to find a wider range of menu items (including sustainable and locally sourced seafood), personal service, a large, eclectic wine list and décor that ...
