Relish the Tastes

Local Foods × Global Flavors


Delicious takes on a whole new meaning once you taste the fresh seasonal flavors of esteemed Chef Kamal.


Taste the difference fresh and local food can make! From selecting seasonal produce from our local growers to visiting with area producers to ensure the highest quality meats, Chef Kamal’s love of fresh food is evident in everything we do.

There is always something new to try as we bring you experimental dishes and add seasonal ingredients. Our menu conforms to seasonal availability, but dishes you truly relish will stay, so talk food with us!

Relish is managed and supported by a diverse team of Grinnellians who love food and believe in the benefits of using the freshest, most local ingredients possible. Their investment in this venture allows us to search out quality local foods and bring them to you in season.

On May 19 & 20, 2019, Relish uses a fixed price ($20-$37/person, depending on the option) limited menu that includes an appetizer plate w/a variety of house-cured veggies & locally-raised, cured meats, cheese & a lentil dip. Sides of wild rice pilaf & grilled local asparagus are served w/one of the following entrées: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom, Goat Cheese & Fruit-stuffed Amish Chicken Breast, Baked Cod w/Avocado & Lime Sauce, or Bleu Cheese Beef Wellington.
