UPDATE: With the release of MVC 2 Microsoft has overhauled www.asp.net/mvc, removing the "featured sites" section altogether. Though this is a sad day for me, it represents a great day for web development in general. Anyway, read about what once was:

RuthsChris.com wins the unofficial "Website That Uses Microsoft Technology Featured on a Microsoft Technology Website" Award (it's unofficial because I made it up).

Boo-yah! There it is: RuthsChris.com on the "What is ASP .Net MVC" page. I'm not totally sure how this came to be, but I think it involves Twitter: Rick Diaz, a Software Architect at my company, submitted a reply to a Phil Haack post on Twitter soliciting any sites that use .Net MVC. Rick replied with RuthChris.com and the rest is history.
