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.
