Chef Ryan Lachaine’s Riel now open in Montrose

Chef Ryan Lachaine’s Riel now open in Montrose Modern American cuisine influenced by the Texas Gulf Coast and flavored with the chef’s Ukranian heritage and his French-Canadian upbringing. The snug, 65-seat restaurant features a chic blue-gray color scheme and a glass wall facade that makes its dining room and theatrical open kitchen entirely visible from the street. The concise opening menu includes dishes such as hanger steak with potato and cheddar pierogis and horseradish cream; head-on Gulf shrimp with collard greens; brick chicken with winter squash and roasted mushrooms; red snapper with ham broth, crowder peas and dandelion greens; and pork tonkatsu tartine. Expect an interesting wine list and a cocktail menu that further riffs on the eclectic food offerings with drinks such as the Borscht Sour (aquavit, lemon, beet, caraway and egg whites); the Trudeau (dry wine, gin, tonic and orange bitters); the Maple Old Fashioned (rye, cardamom, maple syrup and bitters); and the straightforward Winnipeg Jet (shot of Canadian Club Rye and a Lone Star tallboy)....
