ST. LOUIS — Ruth’s Chris Steak House — located downtown on the first floor of the Hyatt Regency at the Arch — has re-opened, following a $1 million investment that will make the restaurant better suited to a post-pandemic landscape, officials said.
Located at 315 Chestnut St., the restaurant was closed from June 15 through June 25, as it underwent renovations including a new layout and upgraded technology.
The 12,000-square-foot restaurant is owned by Prime Hospitality Group, an Indianapolis-based, family owned company that owns 11 Ruth’s Chris Steak House locations across Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina and Missouri, including a Ruth’s Chris location in Chesterfield.

Gov. Mike Parson’s vetoes slash millions for St. Louis-area projects
ST. LOUIS — Millions of dollars in funding for St. Louis-area projects has been slashed by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson, who made 201 vetoes, cutting $555.3 million from the coming year’s state budget.
The General Assembly, which OK’d the $51.8 billion budget in May, returns for a veto session in September, but would need two-thirds majorities in the House and Senate to override the Parson moves.
Most prominently, Parson vetoed $46 million for an allied health building at St. Louis Community College. A spokesperson for the college didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
He also cut $10 million from a $25 million appropriation for Great Rivers Greenway, the St. Louis-based developer of urban trails. It’s for the Brickline Greenway, which is to connect Fairground Park, Forest Park, Tower Grove Park and the Gateway Arch.
