Mike is a proud sponsor of Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse.
Having celebrities at his restaurants is a common occurrence in Jeff Ruby’s Restaurants. In fact, The Precinct, the first of his stable of high-end steakhouses, was founded in 1981 with the backing of a several professional athletes in Cincinnati. That said though, Ruby knew even then that the key to having a successful establishment was to not only have great clientele, but to deliver an absolutely incomparable total dining experience, one that is now known as The Jeff Ruby Experience.
The seeds of Ruby’s philosophy were first planted in the kitchens of his mother and stepfather’s restaurants on the Jersey shore. It was there he learned the in-and-outs of the restaurant business – before deciding to leave home at age 15. He earned a high school degree and graduated from Cornell University, supporting himself with a variety of restaurant jobs which further developed his unique culinary and service perspective.
