Relish, the newest restaurant on the lineup at the Revel in Atlantic City, will open its doors on Saturday, May 18. Relish will be offering an affordably priced menu right on the casino floor. The soon-to-be 24-hour cafe will be serving breakfast dishes, homemade pastas, burgers, sandwiches, salads, soups, and other classic comfort foods. Highlights of the menu include a cheesesteak, a breakfast burger with bacon, cheddar, and a fried egg, potato gnocchi with italian sausage in a tomato fennel broth, chicken and waffles and a beef stroganoff with egg noodles, beets, pickles, and sour cream. The restaurant will begin its full 24 hour service with breakfast in June, right in time for the summer shore rush.

That picture above (of the shrimp grits at Relish) was my favorite snap of the week–the kind of thing that made me want to immediately get in the car, head out to West Oak Lane and eat seven or eight bowls of it. My favorite story? The one about Victory Brewing finally bottling their artisan root beer (perfect for bourbon-spiked root beer floats) and selling their own beer-inspired ice cream. The best deal of the past week? Daniel Stern losing his mind and almost giving away Smokehouse Dogs and pints of Narragansett Lager at MidAtlantic. And the most useful thing we came up with? Grilling advice from 10 of the best chefs in the city (including Daniel Stern, who may be nuts but does know a thing or two about working a grill).
And you know what? That wasn’t even half of what we had going on this week on Foobooz. Here’s some of the other good stuff you might’ve missed:
Gemelli Opens In Manayunk And yeah, we’ve got the menu and the pictures

Happy 4th of July, everyone. See you all back here on Tuesday.
Adam Erace heads out to West Oak Lane to check in on the Bynum brothers’ Relish. He finds Southern inspired classics done well in an oddly intimate 5,000 square feet space.
The performances in the “café” float like spring zephyrs over a smoked-glass partition into the dining room, where the melodies are absorbed by the swirled carpets and the lucky ears of the diners.
