August 15 would have been Julia Child's 100th birthday, and RIS is celebrating the occasion all month long!
This month's Lunch Club Series Menu is entitled "All Things Julia", featuring a few of her favorite things. Join us for this $25 3 course offering weekdays between 11:30am and 3pm.
Start with Ris' favorite Vichyssoise with crème fraîche and chives, or Moules Marinière - butter, herbs and vermouth, served with grilled bread.
For the main course, Chef Ris is offering Sole Meunière with lemon-caper brown butter, parsleyed potatoes and haricots verts. Or, enjoy a Roasted Chicken Cobb Salad - avocado, bacon, blue cheese, tomato and egg with roast chicken vinaigrette.
Finish with one of Julia's favorite indulgences, The Salty Turtle Sundae - vanilla ice cream, salted pecans, chocolate and caramel sauces, a la Lucky's restaurant in Montecito, CA. Chef Ris also salutes Julia's love of poached fruit and meringue in her Almond Vacherin with peaches and cream.
What is the perfect accompaniment to a Julia menu? Why, gin, of course! Try Julia's favorite Reverse Martini Noilly Prat dry vermouth on the rocks with a float of Gordon’s gin and lemon twist. If you can't join us for lunch, we will offer a $35.12 Julia Dinner Menu between August 7 and 19, celebrating the overlapping National Julia Child Restaurant Week and DC Restaurant Week. Call today for reservations. Bon appétit!
