Ivy Tavern Takes on New Chefs, New Menu


Big changes are in the works at The Ivy Tavern, as this Dallas favorite debuts a new menu, launches a Sunday dive brunch, and introduces a couple of all-star chefs into the kitchen.

The bar would like to introduce David Rodriguez as its new Executive Chef. Prior to his role at The Ivy Tavern, Chef Rodriguez held a number of Executive Chef positions—most recently at 904’s Kitchen and Cocktails in Denton, and before that, at Oak Cliff’s Urban Acres and Oddfellows.

There are some pretty tasty dining options in downtown Plano as I found out last night, beboppin’ in an out of more than a few last night. One such choice landed us at a spot called Kelly’s Eastside for one of the tastiest sandwiches we have sample in a some time. Perusing the menu, and after sampling the extremely rich crab artichoke dip, we left the selection to our bartender. We were up in the air about a burger or a sandwich. We are always on the hunt for the next best burger, so there is always that bent. And when ordering a burger we generally get it as close to plain as possible for two reasons. First, it just looks better in a photo. And second, you are able to actually taste the burger with out the addition of giant shards of avocado, or spilling in chili.  Continue reading
