RIS Restaurant Review

: Ris Lacoste, formerly the executive chef of 1789 Restaurant, cooks at her own establishment in the West End, which features creative American comfort food. RIS may come across as an exclusive setting, but Lacoste herself sees this venue as the ultimate in neighborhood drop-in places, ideal for a cup of coffee while working on a computer, after-work drinks with chums, and fancier dinner parties in one of the private rooms. (Note that despite the casual approach, proper attire is required, so don’t plan to straggle in with sweats on.) Although the emphasis is on familiar eating, RIS stresses local sourcing, so some of the appetizers, such as the spring onion and red snapper sashimi, or the entrée of rabbit pappardelle, are high-end and likely farm fresh. Many of the desserts have a homemade touch, including the butterscotch pudding and the Rissy's Peanut Butter Cup. A take-out menu is available.
