Ray Lasher and Chef Raquel Jubran, who collaborated together at Lasher's in Belmont Heights, have reunited at Lasher's Kitchen. Featuring a menu of small plates, classic dishes with contemporary twists, and some favorite signature items from the original Lasher's (including the famed meatloaf, fried green tomatoes and creamy clam chowder), Lasher's Kitchen serves lunch and dinner plus brunch on weekends. The thoughtful wine and beer list, coupled with Ray's hospitality, have made this a popular dining destination since it's opening in 2017.
Reminiscent of the neighborhood restaurants found in cities like San Francisco or NYC, Taste Wine-Beer-Kitchen is part wine bar, part restaurant. The chef-driven menu features an array of farm-to-table small plates with wine pairings as well as unique microbrew pairings on tap. Located in Belmont Heights, Taste is the quintessential destination to spend an evening with friends pouring over the sommelier curated wine list or chatting with owners Laurie and Erin. It's also a destination for weekend brunch. Next door is Olives Gourmet Grocer, part of the Taste Wine-Beer-Kitchen family, featuring prepared meals to-go and shelves stocked with all the essentials needed to stock your personal pantry and wine cellar.
