    This month’s Chamber Business Member Spotlight is Ruth’s on Stafford. I’m just going to say from the beginning that the parmesan mushrooms are amazing. I’ve been so impressed with the dishes I’ve had at a few events. If you’re looking for good food at good prices, look no further.

    Ruth’s on Stafford is in a simple, elegant building on Stafford Lane, just down the road from Aldi’s in Dundas. There are small, intimate meeting rooms, a larger gathering room with a bar that seats 100 or stands 200, and a beautiful area in back for outdoor entertaining when the weather allows. It is a lovely spot for both corporate events and weddings.

    Owner and Chef Ruth Bolstad’s mission is “to collaborate with people who want food to be an integral part of their gathering of friends, family, or colleagues”. And she’s offering several creative ways to do this: catering for 2 to 200 on-site and off, Now Serving – a take-out service, and custom requests. 

    The Now Serving is a unique service: Ruth posts the menu on Sundays at 9am, takes online orders until 9am on Tuesday, and then has the orders of soups, breads, freezer meals, and desserts, available for pickup between 5-7pm. It’s a great way to have a ready-to-eat meal after work on Tuesday or out of the freezer, ready to heat and eat on another day of the week. It’s one less meal to have to think about during a busy week of work and other activities.

    Let’s say you’re headed to a Super Bowl party that’s BYOD – bring your own dish – and you’re taking a bag of chips and a jar of salsa. You’re that guy. You know, the guy who doesn’t cook much and defaults to easy off-the-shelf pick-up items. This year, don’t be that guy. Be the guy who takes it up a notch. Be the unexpected guy. Go to Ruth’s on Stafford online and place your order for something unique and yummy, like the parmesan mushrooms.

    Ruth’s is a wonderful place for a reception and her food is the perfect comfort on a cold weekday evening or for a weekend celebration. Try it! I know you’ll like it.
