Relish Has Closed

Susan Seiller told Eater that today's lunch at Relish was the last service at the River Road restaurant, saying she "ran into problems with the business model" and "couldn't generate the revenue" she needed to meet the costs of rent and other commitments with the 50-seat restaurant. While Relish had finally obtained a license to serve liquor, it was limited, and "not having 100 seats," Relish was unable to have a bar, which Seiller believes would have helped generate more revenue. Seiller also cited energy costs and the small parking area adjacent to the restaurant (forcing patrons to try and cross four lanes of River Road with no crosswalk) as further reasons for the closing. While Seiller said she would take some time to consider what restaurant plans she may have in the future, she did say she considered the Relish concept to be "extraordinarily successful," and noted that "there was plenty of love" at a crowded lunch today as word spread that it would the the last of Relish.
