IVY Kitchen: More than Just Theater Dining

Located in Addison, IVY Kitchen is an ideal spot for lunch, dinner or brunch. IVY Kitchen is connected to the luxury movie theater, Look Cinema. You can order food directly through IVY Kitchen during your movie, but we suggest dining at IVY Kitchen beforehand to experience the warm hospitality, tasty dishes and creative cocktails. A cozy dining room makes for a nice evening cuddled in a booth, and when the weather is warm, the patio is a nice al fresco option.

Bootstrap Manhattan

Withering Sunrise and IVY League

Cocktails are a hit at IVY Kitchen. They offer a signature menu as well as featured cocktails that change with the seasons. The Bootstrap Manhattan was especially enjoyable. It is more than just your classic Manhattan. The bartender smokes the inside of the glass with a cedar plank, leaving the glass coated with a smokey taste, then fills it with TX Whiskey, sweet vermouth, bitters and luxardo cherries (the best cherries we've ever had). For someone who's not typically a whiskey drinker, my eyes have been opened after this cocktail. The IVY League and Withering Sunrise were also good drinks. 

Maryland Crab Cakes

Bacon Marmalade Flatbread

The Maryland Style Crab Cakes and Bacon Marmalade Flatbread were hot commodities at our table and disappeared quickly. The crabcakes contain lump blue crab meat and house-made old bay sauce that finishes the cake nicely. Sweet yet savory, the Bacon Marmalade Flatbread was divine. Thin flatbread crust was topped with a sweet marmalade, bacon pieces, arugula and a balsamic glaze. 

Beef Stroganoff

Our favorite entree of the night was by far the Beef Stroganoff - a new addition to the menu. Thick egg noodles topped with a creamy mushroom sauce and pieces of filet mignon made for an extraordinary beef stroganoff -- not the type you make at home from a box. The leftovers were just as delicious the following day. 

Thick Cut Pork Chop

Iron Skillet Brussels Sprouts

Real Deal Mac and Cheese

They also offer a Pork Chop, which is a hearty cut and juicy on the inside. Paired with sweet applesauce and mashed potatoes, the meal is out of this world. We loved the sides of Iron Skilled Brussels Sprouts and Real Deal Mac and Cheese. Both make great additions to share with the table. 

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Mochi

Grown-up Root Beer Float

As always, we love ending on a sweet note. The Pumpkin Bread Pudding and Mochi assortment are great choices, but the table favorite came from the after-dinner cocktails menu. The Grown-Up Root Beer Float is nostalgia in a bowl. Vanilla bean ice cream topped with Not Your Father's Root Beer is a match made in heaven for those who love the combo of sweets and a drink with a kick.

IVY Kitchen opens daily at 11am and offers happy hour Monday-Friday from 4pm-7pm in the bar or patio area. It's a great Addison spot for date night, happy hour with co-workers, brunch with girlfriends and, of course, your movie dining pleasure.
