Eats & Drinks
The Ivy serves traditional Italian cuisine with a modern twist. Dishes like the gnocchi with pulled braised duck combines handmade dumplings and a Chianti braised duck ragu to perfectly bring traditional Italian food into the 21st century. For lunch, Ivy offers delicious paninis like the Ivy bacon cheeseburger which features crispy pancetta, cheddar cheese and caramelized onions. Ivy’s famed wine list features a large selection of 26 dollar wine bottles. According to their philosophy, people should drink wine for its flavor, not for its price. The Ivy offers tasting tours of different wine regions like Italy, France, and the United States. Diners can indulge in glasses of specially selected wine that reflect the varying characteristics of each region.
With a good mix of casual but chic décor, the ambiance at the Ivy and Cava Cocktail Lounge reflects the cozy and warm but still a bit edgy atmosphere. Chandeliers and open faced brick walls provide a feeling of tradition and elegance, while the clean, modern red seating adds a touch of contemporary sleekness to an otherwise common décor. Candles upon mini shelves add a form of alluring illumination that makes the Ivy an ideal location for romantic dates. The Cava Cocktail Lounge still maintains the clean, traditional sleekness of the Ivy, but with a more devilish edge. With sharper edged bricks, darker furniture, and a bamboo inspired bar, the Cava Cocktail Lounge lets diners engage with each other in a cozy and charming setting.
Kirstin M.3/1/13I love this place. Quasi-gourmet food for pretty reasonable prices. The beef kabob is to die for. Drinks are strong!
gabby b.9/24/12not very veggie friendly \: but they're playing country music, so it almost feels like home.
Pamela 5/24/13Their honey-vanilla ice cream is awesome!
Kevin H.4/14/13Lots of gluten free options.
