New Restaurant Puts Seattle-Inspired Twist on Classic American Dish

SEATTLE, WA — Relish, a contemporary Burger Bistro offering a modern twist on an American classic, combines Seattle’s culinary influence with gourmet burgers at downtown’s newest eatery. Now open in Seattle, Relish Burger Bistro caters to local residents and the community with breakfast, lunch and dinner along with happy hour specials in the bar and Relish To-Go for convenient pick-up.

With an upbeat and inviting atmosphere, Relish Burger Bistro encourages guests to dine in a social and interactive setting with communal tables, open spaces, complimentary WiFi, bar seating and an open kitchen concept. An affordable and quick lunch menu makes it a convenient lunch spot in the hustle and bustle of downtown; an extensive bar with 21 beers on tap, 18 of which are local brews, provides a laid-back happy hour venue where guests can accompany their burgers with local favorites.

“Burgers and beer are a winning combination, and we’ve partnered with local breweries to find the perfect brews to complement our burgers,” said General Manager Aaron Shook. “With six flat screen TVs, 21 beers on tap and a great location, Relish Burger Bistro is a great neighborhood place for a quick and casual lunch or dinner.”

The menus feature All-American favorites with local influence and an innovative twist. Twelve signature and customizable burgers are available, including the Pike Place special, made with flame-grilled Niman Ranch® beef, fried onion rings, applewood smoked bacon, house made steak sauce and Beecher’s Marco Polo peppercorn cheese. Other offerings include Build Your Own, a Steelhead Burger, a Black Bean Burger, and Chicken Caprese. Each six-ounce burger is served on a fresh bun from Macrina Bakery and accompanied by signature house-blended relishes; all are offered “Fork and Knife style,” for those looking for a healthier option. Relish Burger Bistro also offers something for everyone with a variety of salads, sides, appetizers and a kid’s menu.

“We’re taking the best ingredients and culinary inspiration Seattle has to offer and putting our take on a classic American favorite,” said Executive Chef Ali Majed. “With the bistro’s central downtown location and expansive interior, the restaurant fosters a sense of community and serves as a gathering place. Whether guests are looking to grab a casual lunch, catch the game or meet for happy hour, Relish Burger Bistro has it all.”

Drink offerings include hand-crafted sodas and Big E root beer in addition to an extensive beer collection, a variety of handcrafted cocktails and an assortment of wine. Guests can pair their burgers with Seattle Lager, Mac and Jack’s Men’s Room Red or Elysian Brewing’s stout, or try a beer sampler.

By combining quality and convenience for downtown residents and employees, Relish Burger Bistro caters to the community. A barista station offers morning coffee and breakfast sandwiches, and a “Frequent Fan” program rewards customers with a complimentary burger for every nine burgers purchased. Customers can call in and order Relish To-Go and pick up a fresh, gourmet burger on their way home from work or when heading back to the office.

Relish Burger Bistro premiered in Arizona and was named Best Burger in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area. Headed in Seattle by Executive Chef Ali Majed, who launched the original Relish restaurant, Relish is inspired by Majed’s more than 20 years of culinary experience. Majed focuses on items that reflect Seattle’s unique food culture and seasonal ingredients while highlighting local farmers and sources.
