Address: 2727 E. 86th St., Indianapolis

What to get: Lunch prix fixe

Price: $28.95

Anna’s take: Many restaurant diners think of steakhouses as a place for dinner, but the eledgant eateries also are excellent lunch destinations. I ordered from the lunch prix fixe menu at Ruth’s Chris, in which you get to pick a salad or soup, one entrée and a dessert. I ordered the French onion soup as my starter, which came piping hot with a gooey blanket of cheese melted over the top. In case you’re wondering if the lunch atmosphere is as classy as the dinner one, the soup was served on a doily, and it definitely made me feel fancy. For my main dish, I ordered steak frites, which is a 6 oz. filet served with shoestring fries. A carrot cake cupcake with cream cheese icing was the dessert. Enjoying the lunch prix fixe menu at Ruth’s Chris is a great way to try a few different items without breaking the bank and leaving enough time to get back to the office in an hour if you go on your lunch break.
