Celebrate Restaurant Week at Ris

Join us for dinner at Ris in the West End. Chef/owner Ris LaCoste, a Cal alum, majored in French before heading off to Paris where she landed at La Varenne Ecole de Cuisine, earning a grand diplôme in French cooking in exchange for her work as a receptionist. Ris worked with Bob Kinkead for many years, first at Harvest in Cambridge Massachusetts, later as chef de cuisine, opening Kinkead’s American Brasserie in D.C.  “Ris Lacoste is one of the most respected and dedicated chefs working in Washington, D.C. today, and has been a fixture on the culinary scene for over two decades. Prior to opening RIS her restaurant in the District’s West End, Lacoste served as executive chef of Georgetown’s celebrated 1789 Restaurant. Her innovative regional American fare drew national attention and earned numerous awards, but Lacoste is well known for her commitment to community involvement as well.” Huffington Post

Ris received rave reviews on a recent episode of the PBS show Check Please, DC. ”Chef Ris Lacoste’s eponymous West End restaurant focuses on seasonal American fare. A guest reviewer who dined on the chicken milanese, and Portuguese seafood stew said, “Ris was a pioneer in the farm to table movement. Her dishes change seasonally, so she makes whatever is fresh at the market on that day.”
