Thank You For 15 Outstanding Years!

To our friends, families, our incredible team, partners, purveyors, industry colleagues and our beloved city of Washington, D.C., we have been humbled by so many moments throughout the years and proud to serve you.

From our James Beard nomination for "Most Outstanding" Restaurant, to our RAMMY win recognizing Chef Ris with the Duke Zeibert Lifetime Achievement award, and all the toasts, hugs, and stories in between, this year has been a reminder of why we love what we do and live each day with a humble heart.

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser's proclamation that June 5, 2023 be established as RIS LACOSTE DAY highlighting Chef Lacoste's philanthropy and extraordinary record of community service, including memberships on the boards of Fresh Farm Markets, Foggy Bottom West End Village, and D.C. Central Kitchen among others, was a once-in-a-lifetime moment.

Inclusion in the Michelin Guide for the sixth year in a row and multiple glowing mentions by the Washington Post's food critic Tom Sietsema leave our entire team and staff grateful for the chance to serve this incredible city and her visitors.

This is our home and our guests are why we are proud to celebrate 14 years in operation! We hope you will continue to visit and share RIStories with us online and at the restaurant. Thank you for making this year OUTSTANDING.

Many Thanks And Cheers To A Wonderful Year Ahead!
