13 NYC Restaurants Mentioned In Rap Lyrics That Are Actually Good

Ruth's Chris

Song: Curren$y, "Showroom"
Lyric: "Jet miss in the kitchen grilling up steaks/It'll smell like Ruth's Chris in a minute fool, you want a plate?" (3:00-3:07)
Type Of Cuisine: Steakhouse
Neighborhood: Midtown West
Address: 148 W. 51st St.
Website: ruthschris.com

Curren$y hails from New Orleans, so it's likely he dined at the Southern outpost of this chain steakhouse. But if you want to make like Spitta in the Big Apple, Ruth Chris is the place to do it. While this isn't the best steak the city has to offer, it's hard to deny the creature comforts of eating a piece of meat served on a sizzling platter bubbling with butter. Smack in the middle of Times Square, it likely draws a more corporate crowd than its NOLA-offshoot, but the pleasures of fat-doused cowboy ribeye remain in tact.
