Restore-Mailbox -Identity <target mailbox> -RSGDatabase <Name of the Database added to the RSG> -RSGMailbox <source mailbox> -TargetFolder <folder to which you want to restore the mails to>

For Example :
Restore-Mailbox -Identity newMailbox -RSGDatabase "Recovery Storage Group\My Database" -RSGMailbox mailboxToRecover -TargetFolder "something"

Thank you for clarifying. Was weird when I did get-mailbox john it would return the mailbox but for the command above I had to do.

Restore-Mailbox -RSGMailbox 'John Doe' -RSGDatabase 'Recovery Storage Group\Mailbox Database' -id 'Test' -TargetFolder 'Jdoes Email'
