After months of anticipation, Ryan Lachaine has opened his new restaurant in Montrose. The veteran chef, whose work history includes time as a sous chef at both Underbelly and Reef, blends elements of his Canadian upbringing, Ukranian heritage and Houston’s Southern and Asian influences into Riel’s tidy, 15-item menu. While it’s an unlikely sounding mix, Lachaine and his team have crammed a lot of interesting ideas into the food being served at this stylish, 65-seat restaurant.
