Famed Cincinnati restaurant family asking for federal bailout to keep afloat during coronavirus

CINCINNATI — At the Precinct in Cincinnati's East End, a handful of the more than 15 million Americans who work in the restaurant industry spent Thursday prepping food and hoping people will place carryout orders. But the Precinct's president, Britney Ruby Miller, said hope is not a sustainable business model. "When you think about what we need right now, it’s relief. It’s financial relief," Ruby Miller said. Ruby Miller is Jeff Ruby's daughter. She's been on her phone around the clock, advocating for a $225 billion bailout for the restaurant industry from the federal government. "We need that released immediately so these restaurants don’t plummet," Ruby Miller said. Due to the coronavirus, Greater Cincinnati restaurants can only offer carryout meals. Because of that, countless cooks, servers, dishwashers and others are being laid off. "I’m...

An Update From Britney Ruby Miller

Loyal Guests, As most of you are probably aware, 3 days ago, on March 15, 2020, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that all bars and restaurants in Ohio would be required to close in an effort to stop the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Shortly after, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear followed suit and made the same announcement. Nashville Mayor John Cooper announced that restaurants (public facilities where the sale of food comprises more than 50% of revenue) limit their regular maximum seating to under 50% of capacity and capped at no more than 100 individuals. There is no current frame of reference for how long this will last, but we trust our officials and respect the decisions being made. Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment has fine dining steakhouses in each of these markets. The economic impact on these restaurants and, consequently, our team has been devastating. I’m hurting...

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...
