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.
