Brooklyn-based chef Boris Ginet is exploring and elevating fast-casual dining at his new rotisserie restaurant Risbo. Risbo's menu features a focus on rotisserie meats and eclectic sides, but more than that, Ginet wants patrons to experience the unique vibe of the space. The space is beautifully relaxed, with low lighting, a live DJ and communal tables. These elements are carefully engineered to give off an atmosphere that resembles a dinner party with a slight nightclub vibe.

The centerpiece of Risbo menu is of course the rotisserie meats on display through the open-kitchen counter. Platters of lamb, beef, pork, duck and fish are lined up for the carving, and can be ordered à la carte with a mix of sides and sauces. The beef and lamb feature robust garlic flavors, the duck and chicken are beautifully moist and the branzino explores subtle texture and flavors in an amazing way. Some notable sides include the rich and creamy 'mac five cheese,' the spicy red cabbage salad and the berbere-spiced hummus. Boris Ginet has also crafted some desert options, which include a warm apple cobbler and fudgy chocolate-chip cookies.
