Relish, revisited

My friend Rose and I had lunch (to talk about her doing a blog, yay!) at Relish this afternoon.  A few things have changed since my last visit, and for the better.  First, I won’t be so cocky as to think that they read the blog, but two of my biggest complaints were fixed:  the “small plates, medium plates, and large plates” menu hierarchy has been fixed, and the menu is arranged, instead, by theme: starches, salads, poultry, beef, vegetarian, seafood, etcetera.  This makes things much, much less confusing.  Also, the excessive balsamic reduction has been virtually eliminated!  Thank goodness.  Both Rose’s and my sleeves were safe.

Rose and I both got shrimp drop soup and salads:  I got the asian chicken salad, which on the menu sounded like chicken salad, not salad with chicken.  It was still good, with a nice soy vinaigrette and crunchy peanuts and almost buttery-tasting chicken.  I would absolutely get it again, and at 8.95, it wasn’t a bad price for a salad and good service.  Rose got the house salad, which she liked quite a bit as well.

We splurged on dessert, which was great– a very dense, rich cheesecake and a very dense, rich pumpkin creme brulee.  The texture of the creme brulee was a little bit “off”– much more dense and solid than I’m used to– but the flavor was a nice, subtly spicy-sweet pumpkin.  The plating was very pretty.

With these improvements, I might just make this a more frequent lunch destination.  $6.95 (the cost of their lunch specials) is downright cheap.  Still wish they did a nicer cheese in their grilled cheese and soup combo… are you listening?  Even swiss would be an improvement!  Look at Lavomatic’s grilled cheese du jour!  You can do it!
