What to talk about over drinks. Heard it. Saw it. Tried it.

Been thinking about it.

Chicago's Roister

Chicago's Roister

The chef Andrew Brochu (@a_brochu) was deep into the development of a new restaurant in Chicago when he came across a promotional video while doing some research on the internet. Mr. Brochu liked the trailer for “The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen” cookbook, and he especially enjoyed the music credited to Roister. Curious about the word, he looked up its meaning, and, to quote Leslie Nielsen quoting a thousand other gumshoes in “The Naked Gun,” bingo. “The definition was ‘to revel in a boisterous manner or to be loud and drunken,’” Mr. Brochu said. “I said, that could be the name of a restaurant, Roister (@thealineagroup).”
