Welcome

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!
