Local Chef Ris Lacoste has expanded her successful restaurant beyond downtown DC, and has opened a small, 140 square-foot kitchen offering cooking staples such as stocks, soups, sauces, jams, lamb shanks, etc.
Chef Ris has had a pop-up presence in Union Market since late 2013, offering holiday goodies such as chocolate macaroons, cranberry orange bread, and even sweet potato bourbon soup! The menu is always seasonal, with new items rotating in and out. This week they had a grilled cheese sandwich with a twist: goat cheese, grilled red onion and roasted poblano pepper grilled cheese with tomato soup. I tried the curried goat stew and it was delicious! If you are in Union Market and are looking for a quick bit to eat, be sure to try a delicious Ris bowl, salads, or one of her many different fresh pies.
