Relish is a fun restaurant on Creedmoor Road in Raleigh, NC. The dishes in Relish are Southern-inspired with some playful creativity. It is definitely a refreshing break from the sports bars that are so plentiful in the area. You’ll always find something new at Relish, as they are always trying different things to update Southern cuisine. The restaurant also has a retail market with items from local food purveyors and cooking classes.
We got fried pickles to start, and they were quickly gobbled up.
Relish is known for its pimento cheese, so I got pimento cheese fritters. These were amazing!
If you like cheese, then you’ll love Relish, as they have a number of grilled cheese sandwiches and mac and cheese varieties. I got the Wisconsin–sliced apples, sharp cheddar and applewood bacon on sourdough bread. It was yummy and came with this delicious broccoli salad.
My companions got the fish and chips, which is a favorite.
And the shrimp and grits, which is another favorite.
And a veggie plate for vegetarians with fun veggies like fried green tomatoes.
