RUTH’S CHRIS STEAK HOUSE

Albuquerque, New MexicoLess

The Ruth Chris Steak House in Albuquerque, New Mexico has a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The Beth Donner Design Team researched the site and demographics of the area to create a design plan that resonates locally. They then tailored those elements while embracing the history of Ruth Chris. New Mexico is known for its famous hot air balloon contest on the mesa and BDD commissioned a custom plaster relief art piece. Additional elements like cork on the ceiling, leather, wood and color elements gives the authentic feeling of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Adding in touches of the American Indian culture including custom glass with ultra-glass that has pieces of mica in deep earth tones and a chic laser-cut bar finishes off the look. Overcoming challenges on this project was an achievement as the space was multi-leveled with the upper level having lower than normal ceiling height and working around the existing skylight dome in the middle of space. A beautiful custom chandelier and crystal pieces were installed and represented stars in the mountain sky. Round booths give the feeling that you’re in a luxury wine barrel and the whole project came together in a holistic and elevated way.
