80th & Ivy Wine Kitchen

There’s a new hotspot on 17th Ave. you have to check out: 80th & Ivy Modern Kitchen. I stopped in a couple of Fridays ago for a post-Stampeding snack and drink and had a great time. The lounge in front is open, bright and welcoming, and the dining room up some stairs and in the back of the establishment is cozy and buzzing with the kitchen’s energy. 80th & Ivy was fairly busy, considering it had just opened its doors earlier that week. But that’s not surprising; the spot is the latest from the guys who’ve brought us 1410 World Bier Haus, 1600 World Bier Haus and Classic Jack’s. All places we’ve frequented often.

We had some wine and a couple of snacks, including this delicious tomato salad:

We love that 80th & Ivy is all about using local suppliers, too. Here’s their list:

I’m looking forward to trying dinner there soon!
