Young chef couple opens Relish Restaurant & Bar in Upper Kirby

Before it shuttered in August, Relish Fine Foods enjoyed a five-year run in River Oaks as a gourmet eatery and take-away store.

Husband-and-wife chef team Dustin and Addie Teague now have moved to a location twice the original’s size and tweaked the concept to create Relish Restaurant & Bar.

The 4,200-square-foot, Upper Kirby/River Oaks area spot, formerly home to Bird & the Bear, has been reimagined in a cool palette of gray and white with pops of blue set against wood and tile flooring.

Dustin describes his menu as foods “that everyone wants to eat”: deviled eggs; charcuterie and cheese boards; kale salad with grilled chicken and toasted walnuts; fresh fig and burrata salad with sliced prosciutto; and a classic burger.

[…] the Teagues are making up for lost time; they plan to offer brunch soon.
