Durham’s first Ruth’s Chris Steak House, a nationally acclaimed upscale steakhouse restaurant, will open on Aug. 24, adding 75 new jobs and the third Ruth’s Chris Steak House to the Triangle area.
The highly anticipated restaurant opening will bring considerable sizzle to the Southpoint Mall area with its trademarked 1800 degree oven, melt-in-your-mouth steaks, seafood and specialty cocktails.
“We look forward to opening our third Triangle location and anticipate the Southpoint restaurant should be a great draw from Durham, Chapel Hill, the Research Triangle Park and beyond,” said Steve de Castro, CEO of Big Steaks Management and Ruth’s Chris Steak House’s North Carolina franchisee. “Despite the challenging economy, the Triangle remains one of the strongest regions in the country.”
“We spent quite a few years scouting many locations west of RDU Airport,” added David Sadeghi, COO of Big Steaks Management and a long-time resident of Chapel Hill. “This particular location should attract a good mix of residents from the nearby neighborhoods and communities, business travelers, Southpoint shoppers, plus alumni and sports fans from Duke, UNC and beyond.”
