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.
