Usually Ruth's is reserved for celebrations of some sort, but sometimes you've just got to turn a frown upside down and go enjoy a Pomegranate Martini ($7) or a Blueberry Mojito ($7) at Ruth's Happy
Hour, Monday through Friday. Check your local Ruth's for times, as they vary. So three of my friends have lost pets this week; and don't lie, sometimes the loss of a pet upsets us as much or more than the loss of a human. Well I say a mean human, but everyone
has their own take on this one. So, what does a good friend do? She cheers them up with an awesome Happy Hour, and hopes they get a little happier. This post is dedicated to the best lap-jumper ever, Miss Lillian Averbach, and her (human) mother (Rhonda).
As all of you know, I adore Rhonda, and wanted to cheer her up, even though I was the one who actually cried over drinks. So we ordered some food to go with our drinks. Oh, did I say some food. Excuse me; let me rephrase that. We ordered half the
menu. We started with the tempura onion rings accompanied by Honey Thai sauce. Yum! These are not on the bar menu but you can order them from the dining room. From the bar menu we had the Crab BLT with zucchini fries, the Steak Sandwich with
fries, the Seared Ahi Tuna, and the Spruce Point Smoked Salmon. All bar items are $7 or $8 and are huge portions. The Crab BLT is served cut in three large pieces on garlic bread with aioli mayo and arugula. It's a tasty sandwich, but the zucchini fries are
where it's at! The Steak Sandwich with Bernaise is juicy and tender and a bargain for the price. The Ahi Tuna was our favorite and was some of the best ahi we've had lately. If you're a smoked salmon fan, you'll adore this dish too. It was fresh,
light and delicious! All happy hour items can be ordered until about 6:55 p.m. But don't worry, you can still order off the regular menu after 7. Ruth's Chris Steakhouse Happy Hour 6100 Topanga Canyon Blvd. Woodland Hills, (818) 227-9505 Hours: Mon-Thurs:
