Councilmember Greg Landsman and Vice Mayor Jan-Michele Kearney will honor luxury dining restaurateur Jeff Ruby with a street naming ceremony.
Ruby will be recognized for his contributions and dedication to the community through decades of influence on Greater Cincinnati’s restaurant scene and his philanthropic efforts.
The ceremony is scheduled to take place at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8, at the corner of 5th and Vine streets.
Jeff Ruby arrived in Cincinnati in the early 70s and began creating popular concepts for event and dining establishments, such as Den of Little Foxes and Lucy’s in the Sky.
In 1981, Ruby opened his first luxury steakhouse, The Precinct, in the old Cincinnati Police patrol house in the Columbia Tusculum neighborhood prior to moving into the well-known downtown location.
Then in 2022, he sought to reinvigorate the Central Business District by relocating Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse to the new Foundry development across from Fountain Square.
Jeff Ruby’s restaurants are recognized as among the top steakhouses in the United States.
