The 25 Best Steakhouses in America Right Now - Jeff Ruby's Precinct

American steakhouses are the last bastion of unabashed self-indulgence. Traditional chophouses, complete with white tablecloths and bow-tied waiters, can be identified easily by their menus, relics of gluttonous days gone past. There are gleaming towers of chilled crustaceans, slabs of red meat—black on the outside and blue on the inside—and copious sides of potatoes and vegetables, prepared the way god intended: puréed with butter and cream. The portions are big, yet no one is going to judge you for cleaning your plate, ordering an elaborate, blow-torched dessert, or polishing off a bottle of scotch with your meal. While plenty of these nostalgic establishments still exist and thrive around the country, the American steakhouse landscape is changing. Some of the classic, polished establishments have lost their sheen. And new steakhouses are stepping up to ta...

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...
