Designed in the tradition of a vineyard estate, the 18,248 square-foot restaurant was first built in 2001 for more than $7 million with high-end, custom-designed features throughout and ample private dining and banquet facilities. The building includes a brick vaulted-ceiling wine room with climate controlled storage for over 9,000 bottles.
Ruth’s Chris Alpharetta will feature a range of dining options for the restaurant’s guests, both for individual dining and for private events.
The restaurant, which boasts numerous private rooms including a banquet room that will accommodate up to 200 guests, will undergo a total refurbishment prior to reopening as Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
“This was an opportunity that we simply had to seize,” co-owner Jim Brooks said in a statement.
“It has been a wonderful 20-plus years in Sandy Springs, but the Haynes Bridge site offers the ability to be in a distinct trade area from our other three Atlanta restaurants with the bonus of unprecedented event space,” partner Mark Oswald continued in the same statement.
