Seasonal Shakes and Produce on the Menu at Relish

Farmers market frequent inspiration for chef’s dishes.

 

Chef Steve Cardello is always cooking up something good and this summer is no exception.

The restaurant has added a few new items to its menu, showcasing some of summer’s bounty. and hits the Kings Park Farmers Market for inspiration.

A recent visit there had me trying the market salad with sliced steak and heirloom beets, just picked from the market. I don’t normally order dishes with beets and I don’t use it in my own cooking, not for any reason except I am probably not all that familiar with them. They truly added color and flavor to the dish. I liked the taste so much that on my recent vacation, when I saw heirloom beets on the menu of the restaurant we were eating at, I ordered it again.

Cardello has also added some seasonal berry shakes to the menu. “I know, I have a tough job,” joked Cardello.

The restaurant has been busy; Cardello said July has proved to be his biggest month to date. “We usually slow down in the summer, not this year,” he said.

 

Relish is open Tuesday-Saturday 8 a.m.- 9 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m.- 3 p.m.
