This weekend, on a whim, we decided to head downtown to grab dinner. We get stuck on a rotation of the same few restaurants and wanted to break out of the usual, Ely’s Ivy was a great option to do so!
About Ely’s Ivy
According to the restaurant’s website, “We’ve partnered with local farmers and ranchers to provide a showcase of the greatness of our area. Our seafood is sourced with ethics and sustainability in mind. Our menu, while always having items you can count on, will always be presenting you with fresh new dishes. At the bar, we couldn’t be more pleased with the quality products coming out of our region.”
We started with the Cuban fried pickles; the pickle combined with the smokiness of the pulled pork was a great take on the egg roll wrapped fried pickle. I ordered the cranberry chicken with herb rice pilaf, the chicken was cooked to perfection and the cranberry gastrique was delicious! My husband ordered the New York Strip, topped with pickled green tomato poblano relish with a side of roasted sweet potatoes. Everything was cooked perfectly and had great flavor. It is apparent the amount of thought and planning put into each dish on the menu.
I enjoyed the interior decor, they have maintained the character and charm of the building with a cozy, modern feel. The walls feature pieces from local artist, Jessie Thorson. There are several seating options within the restaurant and spaces to accommodate private events up to 30 people. Reservations are available on their website or via phone.
Our waitress explained that the menu rotates often, you can check out their current menus on their website. The menu items are unique, but there is something for everyone. We will definitely be back again soon!
