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.

We’re starting to feel our age. Everyone needs to relax, including the staff at Relish. So we are closed on both Sundays AND Mondays for the foreseeable future. We are still available for catering at your time/place, and will open for a larger party for a lunch, or dinner on Sunday or Monday if we are free to do so. Just call and ask for Kamal or Laura to confirm our availability.

Check out our Facebook page for upcoming events such as live music. The Harvest Dinner to benefit Imagine Grinnell has been cancelled due to low ticket sales.
