Ruth’s Rumor Puts New Steak House on ChenalLock Icon

1 min read

Have you heard reports that Ruth’s Chris Steak House is going into the former Del Frisco’s Grille location at the Promenade at Chenal shopping center?

Well, we heard the same thing, so we checked with the high-end steakhouse chain based in Winter Park, Florida.

So far, we’re getting what we classify as “non-denial denials.”

That means our “Spidey sense” tells us there may be something to the reports.

If you’ll recall, the last time reports circulated that Ruth’s Chris was considering coming to Little Rock was in October 2015.

That’s when the word was that it planned to locate in the Cromwell Building at 101 S. Spring St. downtown.

Those plans came to naught.

And a few months before that, in July 2015, the international steakhouse chain pitched a plan to locate on Markham Street, on the red-brick plaza between the Doubletree Hotel and the Old State House Museum, property owned by the city of Little Rock.

That also went nowhere.

Ruth’s Chris, founded in New Orleans, has more than 150 locations around the world, but its only Arkansas location is in Rogers.
