Our Story

Situated in Myers Park, RuRu's found its home at the historic Reynolds-Gormajenko House. Commonly referred to as ``The Villa`` amongst Charlotteans, the building is an excellent example of Tuscan Revival architecture dating back to 1925. The original estate was owned by Blanche Reynolds, a native of Durham NC, but then inherited by his wife upon his death in 1928. This fortune coupled with her aristocratic tastes, lively spunk, and the help of renowned NY architect William Lawrence Bottomley lead Mrs. Reynolds to construct the only authentic Tuscan Villa in the Queen city.

We are proud to call The Villa our home and do our best to stay true to the beautiful tastes and lively spirit of Mrs. Blanche Reynolds-Gormajenko. In fact, it is believed that her spirit still lives on as she is known to make her presence felt since her passing. From randomly broken glass to a host of unexplainable technological issues, it seems that Blanche is still very much alive and likes to have a little fun with us at The Ru. Ask your server for their favorite Blanche experience and I’m sure they’ll have one to share!
