Ruth's Chris Steak House - Fresno, CA

Website here.

* Update: Blake and I went back on 8/22/12 for our 2-year anniversary.

Like the rest of his family, Blake is a huge steak house fan. My college Nutritional Sciences & Toxicology and The Aging Brain professors drilled into my head that red meat is a big no-no, so I try to avoid it, although I know that it does taste good, and I love eating meat and potatoes. Anyway, I do indulge occasionally, and I ate at Ruth's Chris with Blake a few weeks ago.

The fried calamari appetizer is SOOO good. Here's their online menu description: "Our calamari is lightly fried and tossed with a sweet and spicy Asian chili sauce"

My petit fillet (cooked at 1800 degrees and topped with sizzling butter, of course):

This is so dark, but I didn't want to keep embarrassing poor Blake. Below is the Chocolate Explosion cake. For some reason it's not on their online menu. Also very good.

I haven't been back to Ruth's Chris for about a year. The steak was excellent but I found some of the side dishes were just okay. The calamari sounds fantastic.

I'd probably never go if it weren't for Blake. haha Yeah...the sides are so expensive too! I'd go for just the calamari and then a dessert with coffee. kinda like how i went to The Cracked Pepper Bistro just for the amazing bread pudding and coffee. :)
