How Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse And Jockey Attire Come To Own Triple Crown Racing

If you watched the Kentucky Derby coverage on TV, one name flashed past over and over: Jeff Ruby.  As in Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse, the sponsor of winning jockey Mike Smith, who was virtually the only jockey whose trousers were still white after this year's exceptionally muddy Run for the Roses. Jockey Mike Smith celebrated with Justify after their win in the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby. At least six other jockeys also were wearing the restaurant's logo, though some might not have been seen because of the mud. And in Saturday's Preakness, all but one of the jockeys in the field will be wearing it. How — and why — did Jeff Ruby come to own horse racing? "We’ve been doing it for a long time," Ruby said this week. "I’ve been with Mike Smith for quite a few years, and Joe Talamo since he was 19." Jeff Ruby sponsors Talamo ev...

Restaurant review | Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse: Special-occasion dining spot worth the substantial prices

HOSPITALITY THAT IS EASILY AMONG THE BEST IN TOWN By G.A. Benton / For The Columbus Dispatch Confronting the wallet-wrenching prices in an expensive new Columbus restaurant, I thought: “Wow, Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse better be very good.” As it turns out, it is. After a few visits, I can attest that the cost of eating at Jeff Ruby’s entitles diners to hospitality that’s easily among the best in town. Most visible in this team effort are personable servers in crisp white jackets who are well-versed in the nuances of the food and drink menus and seem unusually adept at anticipating a table’s needs. That takes a lot of training. And it took a lot of money — about $5 million — to transform the former 89 Fish & Grill into one of the most opulent restaurants in Columbus. The head-turning establishment — the Cincinnati-based restaurate...

The Lafayette Mirror Bar At Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse

A PIECE OF HISTORY COMES HOME In 1890, R. Rothschild’s Sons Co, a renowned Cincinnati-based manufacturer of furniture, saloon fixtures and billiard tables, manufactured what would become one of the most noteworthy antique bars of the present day. After more than 127 years and multiple owners, Jeff Ruby is now bringing the stunning, one of a kind LaFayette Mirror Bar home to hold forth in his flagship restaurant, Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse. LINEAGE Originally, the bar was designed on spec and then commissioned to be built by the owner of the LaFayette Hotel in Utica, NY. As was the case with this grand piece, manufacturers like Rothschild would often design and then sell the fixture on paper prior to building it as its size, cost and intricacy made it very challenging to inventory and wait for a willing buyer.  After several decades of service in Utica it was sold in...

Restaurants enhance the experience with luxury interiors

The Best Steakhouse In Nashville   Dillon Ruby grew up around antiques and design just as much as he grew up around restaurants, thanks to two of his father Jeff Ruby’s most passionate interests. “My dad antique shops all over the country, all year round,” Ruby says. “He’s always purchasing collectibles, even before he has a restaurant to put them in. We have a warehouse in Cincinnati that just holds all kinds of artifacts, all kinds of chandeliers. Just so many antiques.” Dillon Ruby is the executive manager of the Nashville location of Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse, and his father’s love for interiors and attention to special touches certainly finds its way into the expansive downtown space that has waiters scraping crumbs off white linens and escorting ladies to the restroom so there is no awkward searching. “We had a great, fun...
