Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana by Ruth Fertel, a single mother of two who wanted a better life for herself and her two sons. She purchased "Chris" steakhouse in New Orleans which had been operated for the 38 years prior. She changed the name to Ruth's Chris when a fire forced her to move from the original location. Today, there are 129 Ruth’s Chris Steak House restaurants across the globe, including a recently opened restaurant in Dubai. In May 2010, Ruth’s Chris will celebrate its 45th anniversary.
