If you want to munch on an upscale burger - beef, lamb, pork, turkey, ahi or veggie - and catch some tunes at the same time, consider the new Relish Burger Bar in the fancy Montano center in El Dorado Hills.
To kick off the restaurant's summer weekend-concert series, the Rhythm Vandals - a Santana tribute band - will be set up on the deck beginning at 8:30 p.m. Saturday. It will be followed by Shameless (party and dance tunes) at 8:30 p.m. May 29. No cover charges.
"We have a 2,500-square-foot patio with a fire pit, and we'll have a misting system up by the end of May," said owner Richard Righton.
Righton also owns Bidwell Street Bistro in Folsom, and its influence shows up on Relish's menu: pickled beets and goat cheese, house-made polenta triangles, wild boar sausage.
Relish is at 1000 White Rock Road; (916) 933-3111, www.relishburgerbar.com.
