Happy Hour!

Ruth's Chris Steak House Somewhere between the dark atmosphere of El Gaucho and the sophistication of the Met, Ruth's Chris' quiet happy hour offers very small gourmet snacks and good stiff drinks. Draft beer, wine, and wells are only $2.75, and prices are almost unbelievable on the food—until you see the tiny portions. Expect traditional happy hour bites such as a quarter-pound burger ($1.95) and spinach artichoke dip ($2.95), some healthier options like fresh Caesar salad ($1.95), and other munchies including barbecued shrimp ($3.95) and blackened chicken skewers ($2.95), which are spicy and good. One of the bonuses here is the fantastic (complimentary!) nutty bread. 4–6 p.m. and 9 p.m.–close daily. 800 Fifth Ave., 206-624-8524, DOWNTOWN; 525 Bellevue Square, 425-451-1550, BELLEVUE food@seattleweekly.com
