Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse uptown is closing Monday for renovations until Oct. 6.
The restaurant at 222 South Tryon St. will reopen Oct. 7 with a new decor and new look for the bar area. R. J. Leeper Construction is handling the renovation.
In a statement, management said the project will result in “an updated dining atmosphere for our guests.” In the interim, private dining events can still be booked by contacting Shannon McIlravy at email@example.com.
