In 2009, I opened RIS with a desire to serve the community and our customers, and create a different kind of gathering place for fine food and conversation in the West End.
RIS has been your restaurant, your dining room, your refuge (and mine!),
and we are grateful for your support.
For the last 10 years, we have invested in our team, our community, our customers,
our farmers, our food. YOU have always been an important part of that journey.
Now, I am asking you to invest in us, and in me.

Your generosity will enable me to continue giving to others. Your gifts will be a contribution to the fight to keep small business alive in DC.
We are kicking off RIS 2.0 and want you to be part of our renovation and renewal so we can continue to evolve. In fact, we can’t do this without you.
Are you ready? We are, so let’s do this together!  Thank you!
