$550 steaks, ‘seafood tower’ on tap as ESPN picks Cincy restaurant for GameDay

CINCINNATI (WXIX) — ESPN College GameDay’s meal of choice for the show’s first trip to Cincinnati is Jeff Ruby’s.

Yes, the Gameday team will be well fed in Clifton while hosts Desmond, Rece, David, Kirk and “the Bear” deliver the kind of incisive, data-driven analysis they are known for.

We’re talking about 40-ounce Japanese Wagyu rib eye steaks.

Plus, a giant seafood tower featuring live Maine lobster, Florida crab claws, huge tiger prawns and more.

Finally, a custom designed UC Bearcat logo cake.

Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment is no stranger to the series. Ruby’s has already participated once in Louisville and twice in Columbus.

Jeff Ruby, Founder of Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment, said, “We’re celebrating our 40th anniversary this year, so it’s only natural to celebrate alongside another Cincinnati icon – the UC Bearcats! The national accolades they have received are well deserved and certainly shine a light on our wonderful city. Serving the best steaks and seafood in the country to our dear friends David Pollack, Kirk Herbstreit and the rest of the GameDay team is an honor!
