METAIRIE, La., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Ruth's Chris Steak House, the United States finest upscale restaurant, announced today that it will expand into Hong Kong, becoming the first U.S. business to announce expansion there under the new Chinese regime. The newest Ruth's Chris Steak House is scheduled to open October 6, 1997 in the Empire Building (68 Mody Rd.) which overlooks Ocean Bay in Kowloon. We see tremendous opportunities in Hong Kong and the entire Pacific Rim for U.S. businesses," stated Ruth Fertel, Founder and Chairperson of Ruth's Chris Steak House. Ms. Fertel added, "Now steak lovers can travel half way around the world and find a great steak...and it does not matter if they begin in Hong Kong or New Orleans."

Mr. Ko also owns and operates two other Ruth's Chris Steak Houses -- one in Taipei which opened in 1993, the other in Taichung which opened in 1996. All three restaurants offer the same menu which is served in the United States featuring U.S. Prime beef which is flown in fresh and hand-cut daily at the restaurants.
