A few years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Ris Lacoste (formerly of 1789) at a chef cook-off thing. She's very nice and tremendously accessible...much like the menu for her new restaurant that opens today, Ris. It's located in a great space in the West End...and by the way, our friends David and Laurie Adamson, procured all the artwork. Being billed as an all-purpose-neighborhood hangout, it offers everything from free wi-fi to full-time baristas for your espresso needs, to a fantastic elevated comfort food menu.
And according to UrbanDaddy.com,
"In coming weeks you'll be able to sample Lacoste's breakfast menu, as well as a family-style Sunday supper. But for now, the daily specials, pegged to the day of the week, are always a good bet: Meatloaf Mondays, "Little Italy" Wednesdays, and Saturday means steak and potatoes.
Or what Lacoste calls the "rookie date night" menu."
I can't wait to check it out!
