Marsha Brown is back in Philly with her newest venture.

Today, June 6th at 1800 Market St. the new location of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse opens.

This is Brown’s first new restaurant in 12 years. She has been working on making the big move from Broad Street to Market Street for the past two years.

“Once I got a hold on this location I knew I couldn’t let it go,” says Brown.

So what should you expect at this new Ruth’s Chris?

Brown is passionate about the updated design. The dark wood and rich colors found in traditional steakhouse décor cannot be found at this new location. Instead secluded booths, bright whites, glistening mirrors, a wine case that displays 2,000 bottles, and artwork curated by Brown greet you as you walk from room to room.

“The art really takes the space to another level; I invested in thought provoking pieces that you wouldn’t typically see,” says Brown.

The new “Ruth 2.0 menus” have been updated with new dishes, sides and an entirely new happy hour. Weekdays from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. you can check out the new Sizzle, Swizzle, Swirl menu that features $9 bites and drinks. And the steakhouse will also be opening its doors for lunch, and in the near future, brunch as well.

“After 27 years in Philly, I knew we needed to come back strong with this new location,” says Brown.

Check out the new and improved Ruth’s Chris and get a taste of the redefined classic.
