Ruth Chris coming to Biltmore Village

10 posts in this topic

While driving away from Starbucks, I was immediately greeted by a sign that said "Ruth's Chris Opening Fall 2011". I'm very excited to try it when it opens! The location will be where that old motel across from BP was.

I was wondering what would ever be done about the old Plaza Motel lot. Originally it was supposed to be a hotel, but then I guess the Bohemian came in and stole their thunder. Then, Hill Partners (who developed the Brook Street retail project) indicated that this might be a 3rd or 4th phase to their Biltmore Village-area developments. Then sometime last year I heard it was being planned as a 1-story restaurant.

Unfortunately I can't help but be disappointed with its chain-ness and lack of mixed use. I've been to Ruth's Chris a couple of times and it ain't all that.

Is this site part of the historic district and subject to city review? I haven't seen anything on the development mapper.

EDIT: I just found the map showing the local historic district boundaries. It is indeed located within the boundaries.

Did a little more digging. The Historic Resources Commission approved a certificate of appropriateness at their November meeting. The developer is proposing a two-story building that would be in line with the aesthetic of other village buildings (tile roof, peddledash exterior, etc.). Couldn't find a rendering, however.

Apparently, the Asheville Ruth's Chris will open with a new location at the Harrah's Cherokee Casino in fall of this year. AND

BRIO TUSCAN GRILL! And it's only just a little over an hour away! I've never ate there, but it looks like it's good. Has anyone tried it? Is it better than Maggiano's? (which I have yet to try, hopefully I will go at SouthPark this weekend maybe or in Buckhead next month)

Ruth's Chris steakhouse is good food, trouble being you have to have about $250 lying around for 3-4 people.

Looks like they are almost finished with this Ruth Chris' steakhouse. Should be open by September, and taking reservations.

I don't think it will actually look exactly like that, though, as the actual one is a two story structure.
