Meet Jeff Ruby - WLWT 5

CINCINNATI'S BEST STEAKHOUSE ENTREPRENEUR— He is outspoken and controversial. Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby is known as much for his rewards and taking on criminals as he is for his steaks.  But before he was looking for justice and trying to solve murder cases, he was running from a rough life along the Jersey shore.  Ruby sat down with WLWT’s Sheree Paolello to talk about where he came from, how he became “The King of Fine Dining” in Cincinnati and why he offers up rewards for people he's never met.  With his signature cigar in one hand, he was brutally honest, humble and funny.
