A Private Evening with Chef Ryan Lachaine at Riel in Houston!


Recognized nationally in publications such as EsquireFood & WineBusiness Insider and Tasting Table, Chef Ryan Lachaine recently opened Riel, his first restaurant to great acclaim.

Chef Lachaine will host this special Inside Access from Chase evening and specially curate a seasonal menu influenced by the culinary landscape of Texas’ gulf coast, Lachaine's Ukrainian heritage and his French-Canadian hometown, Manitoba. The private culinary experience will begin with a cocktail reception followed by a five-course dinner with a selection of individually-plated and family-style dishes.

This newest addition to the Montrose neighborhood 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.

Chef Lachaine received his Culinary Arts degree from The Art Institute of Houston. He worked at trailblazing Texas restaurants such as Gravitas, Stella Sola, Reef and was inducted into Eater’s 2013 class of Young Guns as the Chef de Cuisine at Underbelly.

During a casual question and answer session, Chef Lachaine will share his culinary journey and take photos with guests.
