Jeff Ruby partners with local craft brewery on signature beer

Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby is partnering with a local craft brewery for a signature beer to serve at his restaurants. Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment is partnering with Taft's Brewing Co. on Jeff Ruby's Smoked Amber Ale, a 6% ABV brew whose malts have been smoked using cherry wood, the same way barbecued meats would be. Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment corporate beverage director Keegan Corcoran said the relationship with Taft's Brewing came about because one of the brewery's owners, Todd Braff, is a regular diner at Ruby's restaurants. They discussed working together and pitched the idea to the restaurants' ownership. "Categorically, you want to put your best foot forward, no matter what," Corcoran told me. "I wouldn't want to have a world-class spirits collection and a world-class wine list and then just serve Bud Light. It's...

Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse, Louisville - Travel + Leisure's Top 100 Restaurants in America To Splurge On

Sure, it’s always a good idea to live within your means and save for the future. But every now and again, it’s important to treat yourself to something special, too. Be it a birthday, anniversary, promotion, or a hefty tax refund, splurging on a good meal every so often can be good for your soul. And thankfully, Yelp has parsed out 100 places around the country where those dining-related splurges should take place. “To determine Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Treat Yourself for 2019, we looked at the reviews received by three and four dollar sign businesses in the restaurant and food categories,” a Yelp representative explained. For the rankings, Yelp considered both the rating and the volume of the reviews, as well as accounted for the overall volume of reviews in each business's area so as not to “disadvantage businesses in areas with relatively low revi...

All 3 Of Jeff Ruby's Restaurants Named To Best In Cincinnati List

Restaurant writers are expected to have lists of "bests" at the ready, preferably ranked and ruthlessly rated. After a couple of decades of eating out in Cincinnati, reviewing and writing about restaurants, I do believe that some restaurants are better than others. But I don't think that means one is the best of all. But the urge to list persists, as does the urge to help people find somewhere they'll like to eat. So, what I've made here is my favorite 14 of the best Cincinnati restaurants.   I have selected this list from the local restaurants that hit the high-quality mark. These are not just options for home meal replacement. They are full service, offer a wine list and cocktails, take reservations and serve a varied menu. (We'll need another list for my favorite pizza joints, chili parlors, no-reservation hipster haunts, strip-mall Chinese and...

Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse Aims to Up the Entertainment Value with Lexington Location

March 21, 2019 The restaurant business is no big thing. It’s thousands of little things, and all of those little things—each one of them—have to be addressed,” said restaurateur Jeff Ruby. “And then things change all the time—they get redesigned, or at least I do. I keep reinventing myself. I keep re-evaluating what I’ve done, and I say, ‘you know what, I think I’ve got a better idea than that other idea.’” Dressed in a Kentucky-blue sequined blazer decorated with symbols of the state, wearing a black fedora and smoking one of his signature cigars—his hand adorned with a diamond-encrusted University of Kentucky basketball championship ring—Ruby is seated on the patio of Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse in Cincinnati, discussing his namesake restaurant brand’s most-recent location in Lexington, whi...

Jeff Ruby Prepping For Grand Opening In Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– Despite years of setbacks, failed financing and frustration, Lexington’s City Center is taking shape. One of the first to sign on when it was Centre Pointe, has kept its commitment and is almost ready to open its doors for what’s billed as more than a restaurant…it’s the Jeff Ruby experience. Ruby first developed his brand in Cincinnati, Ohio, and expanded to four other cities. But one market remained elusive. “I’ve wanted to do Lexington more than any other city, I’ve never been as excited as I am,” Ruby said. As the first big name to say yes to Dudley Webb’s vision of Centre Pointe, the company had to exercise patience and set aside some pride to endure delay after delay, and resist the urge at times to call it quits. “As much as I love Dudley and I love Lexington, this was a challenge...
