AAA Inspector Notes
Who would expect to find a gourmet restaurant in the same building as the gas station convenience store? As crazy as that sounds, the mission of the chef/owner is to offer well prepared food at a fair price. The setting is unpretentious and includes an eclectic mix of French bistro style and assorted, colorful knickknacks accumulated over the owner's career. The food is made to order, using natural, fresh ingredients. There are some specials based on the season, but a menu standard is the blue crab bisque. The name of the restaurant (REL) is derived from the owner's initials.
