Our Food Is Art approach to dining has long been a mainstay of the Sonesta experience. And now, the Sonesta Philadelphia Rittenhouse Square is embracing that philosophy more fully with the June 6 opening of Ruth’s Chris Steak House right off the lobby. Burnie Gaeta takes the helm as General Manager while Executive Chef Johnnie Reynolds oversees the kitchen.

Long a mainstay for diners in the City of Brotherly Love, we are thrilled that this internationally acclaimed establishment relocated to the newly renovated site right off of our lobby and next to 1ArtBar, our casual dining option. We welcome the upscale eatery with open arms to the Sonesta family. The impeccably designed restaurant features custom-aged, USDA prime steaks served on 500-degree sizzling plates, an award-winning wine list and handcrafted cocktails that stay true to Sonesta’s Liquid Art recipe book.

“It’s rewarding to see this project come into fruition in such a vibrant neighborhood jam-packed with fine-dining, shopping and luxurious hotels,” said Marsha Brown, owner of Ruth’s Chris Steak House Philadelphia. The restaurant seats 250 at indoor and outdoor tables and is open for lunch, dinner and the lively “Sizzle, Swizzle, Swirl” happy hour. Three private dining rooms accommodate dinner meetings or social gatherings: The Spirit Room can welcome 25 guests, the Infinity Room hosts up to 45 and the 1800 Degree Room holds up to 12.

In keeping with the Sonesta fine dining tradition, the restaurant’s intimate atmosphere holds many surprises designed to keep guests inspired and intrigued. The 30-foot refrigerated wine wall houses almost 2,000 bottles. Thought-provoking art on the walls includes works by DeVon, a pop artist compared to Andy Warhol, Todd White, the official artist for the 49th Grammy Awards, and Ron Rundo, whose work elevates the breathtaking beauty found in nature.

We look forward to welcoming you to the newly opened Ruth’s Chris Steak House at the Sonesta Philadelphia Rittenhouse Square!
