Relish Modern Tapas
Relish Modern Tapas' chefs place a new spin on the centuries-old tradition of socializing with friends over small plates, interspersing their Spanish tapas menu with innovative international dishes. Their kitchen is a flurry of roaring fires and sizzling saucepans as chefs stir saffron into rice paella and simmer up morsels of chicken, chorizo, and baby back ribs. They fold seafood into Mexican- and Asian-inspired tacos while Italian flatbreads bake in ovens. Out in the sleek dining room, bartenders nimbly move about the bar, whipping up the bold specialty martinis that earned the praise of reporters from City Beat. Wooden beams crown the bar, extending out over spherical arrangements of tabletops and cushy booths. Hanging lights bathe the room in a soft glow, and towering windows provide diners with a glimpse of the glimmering lights and handsome crossing guards of Deerfield Boulevard.
