Arthur Henry’s Supper Club & Ruby Room, from the owners of Naked Coffee, Tupelo and Orphan, will feature a communal grill in the center of the restaurant where diners will cook their own steaks, Naked Lounge Midtown manager Stephanie Cremin told Cowtown Eats in a phone interview on Thursday.
The new restaurant, located at 34th & Broadway, will be a supper club and only open for dinner and late night service from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Initially, Arthur Henry's will only feature two sides -- a salad and bread -- in addition to steaks that will range in price from the mid teens to the mid $20s.
Cremin said the venue will also host live piano music, probably nightly.
The restaurant is expected to open in the first week of December.
I'm excited for a new concept in town. I grew up near a restaurant with the same concept, but because it was a bar, I was never old enough to try it. I'm looking forward to this new addition to the dining landscape.

Dollar-Wise Gourmet: Grilled Cheese, If You Please - “Grilled cheese for a buck—WTF?,” a slogan I once heard at a Grateful Dead concert, rang through my head as I pursued this month’s Dollar-Wise. My mission: to find the tastiest grilled cheese, at the best prices, in the Sacramento region. Here are five gooey-good ’wiches under $7. For the best value, pick one that includes a side.

Try It: Formoli’s Stuffed Dates - Formoli’s luscious, baked Medjool dates - stuffed with creamy, tangy goat cheese and little bits of pancetta – are the perfect pre-meal nosh. I love the juxtaposition of sweet/salty, creamy/chewy in this teeny appetizer; and - with four dates per plate – it’s a great size for two people. Kira O'Donnell in Sac Mag.
Boulevard Bistro - One such gem like this is Elk Grove's Boulevard Bistro. And true to form, it's not in the newer sections of Elk Grove, but in old Elk Grove on Elk Grove Boulevard on the east side of Highway 99. My first time there was for business and I drove right past it. That's because it is housed in a converted bungalow in the midst of insurance companies, banks, etc. Bungalows are generally small homes and so Boulevard Bistro has an intimate air. There a few tables on the porch and then two small dining rooms on the inside. The decor is tasteful with a touch of simple elegance. It would be the perfect spot for a romantic dinner and a drop to the knee. Catherine Enfield on Munchie Musings.
Curated lunch at the Crocker Cafe - Hangar steak ($14.95) was like two steaks in one. I ordered mine medium rare. Sliced into medallions, half of my steak was cooked well past medium gray, almost to dry pot roast territory. The other half was ruby red, moistened by the red wine-mushroom sauce but still tough and stringy. Three flavorless broccoli florettes, a few al dente green beans and sautéed red bell peppers glistening in oil was a side dish in search of purpose. I highlight these flaws because except for this steak and one smashed hamburger on a harried Sunday afternoon I enjoyed everything else for this review -- from a monstrous half-pound grass-fed burger to comforting plates of meatloaf and lasagna to captivating salads composed of chickpeas, lentils and Brussels sprouts to duck confit corn chowder.
