Ruth's Chris Steakhouse to anchor First National
Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, an internationally top-rated chain, is set to anchor First National Center when it reopens in 2020 as a mix of upscale apartments, retail and a Marriott Autograph hotel.
The announcement of the lease on Friday coincides with the completion of model hotel rooms in the historic Art Deco tower and the steel structure along Broadway set to start coming down to make way for structured parking.
Gary Brooks, who with partner Charlie Nicholas is developing the 1931 tower, said the steakhouse will face Park Avenue and will be located on the first floor underneath the tower's Great Banking Hall.
“My vision has been to have one really high-end restaurant,” Brooks said. “I thought it would go into the vault because that is the coolest space in the building.”
