“We invite guests to enjoy five worldwide cabernets from California to Chile to Italy illustrating how each wine is a unique expression of this grape selected from some of the world’s greatest growing regions,” said Helen Mackey, vice president of menu strategy and innovation for Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
“We look forward to a celebration of Cabernet and steak,” she added.
