Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and Bar is all fired up, ready to serve the world's best steaks and coolest cocktails at City of Dreams...
One of Japan's best steakhouses, Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and Bar formally opens at City of Dreams showcasing its signature dry-aged premium steaks.
Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and Bar's three founders, Eddie Baffoe, Matthew Crabbe, and Nathan Smith, welcome guests to the formal opening, offering diners a preview not only of their dishes and cocktails, but their exceptional style of service perfected over years of experience gained in Japan's hotel and restaurant industry.
Three weeks earlier, I sampled Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and Bar's signature dishes and cocktails, and was more than impressed (for more on Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and Bar's signature appetizers, steaks, elegant and indulgent desserts, and cocktails, see my previous post here). That evening, the open kitchen geared up for the formal opening, firing up the grills to serve their signature steaks.
At the entrance, Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and Bar's managerial team (L) ensured everything was ready for the big event, as the courteous staff ushered guests and offered free flowing glasses of wine and champagne (R).
At the bar, the friendly bartenders opened bottle after bottle of champagne, generously refilling my glass even before it was near empty. And after one too many rounds, one gets into the groove at Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and Bar. "Now, it's a party..." as founder Eddie Baffoe motioned for another round.
At Ruby Jack's, the best of the world's premium beef are dry-aged and served, sourced from the US, Japan, Australia, and France, each expertly grilled to perfection. Ruby Jack's impressive Tomahawk takes centerstage at the open kitchen, as appetizers were served...
...including tasty bites of Crab Cakes (L), with creamy crab meat deep-fried and battered with a crisp outer layer; and Steak Tartare (R), with finely minced and chopped premium beef on crisp toast topped with quail egg...
...tender and juicy Beef Sliders (L) with tomatoes and lettuce on a soft bun were also served, as well as Ruby Jack's signature Boutique Tomatoes (R), plump, juicy, and tart tomatoes imported from Japan, drizzled with blue cheese.
Bianca Valerio (L) hosted the evening's festivities, as she called the founders to announce the formal opening of Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and Bar. The founders then called the local partners for a celebratory toast...
...and with raised glasses, the founders of Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and local partners joined guests in the ceremonial toast to formally launch the opening of Ruby Jack's to the public.
Frederick Siy, Ruby Jack's Manila Inc.'s President, is flanked by founders Eddie Baffoe, Nathan Smith, and Matthew Crabbe, with local partners Tim Tan and Gerard Singson (R) at the bar. That night was extra special, as both Frederick Siy and Eddie Baffoe celebrated their birthdays in true Ruby Jack's style.
Ruby Jack's signature dry-aged steak completed the experience, as platter after platter were served. Perfectly grilled to medium rare, the flavors of the beef come through with a flavorful punch as it slowly melts in your mouth.
The festive vibe continued as more glasses of wine were served, along with even more platters of premium dry-aged steak. It definitely was a party at Ruby Jack's.
The team at Ruby Jack's is definitely all-fired up and ready to serve you. Discover the world's best steaks and cool cocktails at Ruby Jack's Steakhouse and Bar, now open at City of Dreams...
