Ruth’s Chris just couldn’t stay away. 

The famous steakhouse chain closed its Columbus location, at Crosswoods, almost three years ago, but will open a new location next year in the Arena District.

Ruth’s Chris will take over the vacated first floor on the north side of the Hampton Inn and Suites across from the Greater Columbus Convention Center at 511 N. High St. That address was once the location for Deepwood.

This will be the third Ohio location for the Florida-based chain.
