Cincinnati Magazine: HOW JEFF RUBY’S WEATHERED THE STORM OF 2020

With limits on in-person dining and social distancing placing a buffer between staff and guests, the pandemic has put the quintessential “Jeff Ruby’s Experience” to the test. Lauren Fisher  - March 9, 2021 The pandemic was only in its nascent days, but Britney Ruby Miller was already on her way to becoming one of the fiercest advocates for her hometown dining scene. On the evening of March 20, 2020, she was fresh off a press conference with Mayor John Cranley, where she’d talked about the Cincinnati restaurant industry and its inherent grit, encouraging Cincinnatians to take advantage of takeout and delivery options and advocating for a $225 billion federal bailout package. The Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment CEO was stinging from the decision to lay off 600 employees, though Miller prefers to call them her family members...

Fox News: Kentucky restaurant donated $60K for employees amid indoor dining ban, says industry unfairly targeted

A family-owned Kentucky restaurant donated $60,000 to its employees one-day before the governor issued an executive order mandating the shutdown of all indoor dining to curb coronavirus. Restaurants in Kentucky had to cease indoor dining as of 5 p.m. Friday and remain closed to on-site diners until Dec. 13, according to Gov. Andy Beshear’s order. He said the move, along with other restrictions, was necessary to clamp down on a surge in coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and deaths.  The governor said in a statement that restrictions did not constitute a "shutdown," but were "surgical and targeted steps designed to slow the spread of the virus and protect our people."  But Britney Miller, the CEO of Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment, which runs seven steakhouses in Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio, said the go...

A Note From Britney Ruby Miller

Dear Loyal Guests,  It has been a while since my last personal letter I sent out back in March, when we were first forced to close our doors. So much has transpired since then that I want to take a moment to share some of my thoughts and provide you with a brief update. As we transition into a new season, I’m overwhelmed with thankfulness. As difficult as the road has been for the restaurant industry, I’m still hopelessly optimistic. Our industry is still day to day, and it’s even been reported that 53% of operators across the country say they are unlikely to survive through 2021, but I choose to remain thankful.  Why? Because of our guests, our employees, and our communities. I’m thankful that we have our doors open — something every business that was shuttered never planned for, and any that remain are considered fortunate to have survived. I&...

LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER: "...Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse is Lexington’s most glamorous restaurant, easily on a par design-wise with establishments in Las Vegas or Manhattan. Despite plush seating, sparkling chandeliers and themed private dining nooks, it’s the quality of the steaks that have won Jeff Ruby’s accolades from the likes of USA Today and Travel + Leisure.

How high-end restaurants plan to keep experience special in COVID world

Polly Campbell, Cincinnati Enquirer Published 5:00 a.m. ET May 28, 2020 | Updated 4:53 p.m. ET May 28, 2020 Britney Ruby Miller, CEO of Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment, which owns seven high-end steakhouse restaurants in three states, describes her company's approach to fine dining as "high touch." That means dining rooms with chandeliers, lavishly set tables, dry-aged prime beef, suave servers and lots of people-watching. But it also literally means high touch: Tableside service, the handshake at the door, the arm offered to a lady when she walks to the restroom, even the hug or kiss for a favorite customer, not an unusual moment at these restaurants.  So how does high touch work in a world when we're all supposed to be six feet apart? How does a restaurant offer an experience of ease and comfort while following the new rules? Every food ...

More than just a steakhouse. How Jeff Ruby's is revamping its restaurants amid COVID-19

Dahlia Ghabour, Louisville Courier JournalPublished 2:18 p.m. ET May 27, 2020 Jeff Ruby's is more than just a steakhouse. The high-end service found at Jeff Ruby restaurants is so much a part of the company's brand, its full name is Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment. And while every restaurant has lengthy rules for reopening during the coronavirus pandemic, the Jeff Ruby team's "COVID-19 Playbook" is nearly 50 pages long. Each department in the company, from servers to managers, has its own new set of standard operating procedures that go "above and beyond" social distancing requirements, said company president and CEO Britney Ruby Miller.  It's a mark of how thorough they are being as a company, she said, and it's the reason the high-end steakhouses in Louisville, Lexington, Nashville, Columbus and Cincinnati aren't reopening until June 3.  "S...
