Inspired by farm to table, 80th & Ivy Modern Kitchen (1127 17th Ave S.W.) brings Calgary a taste of strong family connection in a contemporary setting, rooted in the tradition of the family owned-and-run restaurant. Part of Group 933 Hospitality, 80th & Ivy stands out amongst the rest with a concept that pays homage to the owner’s Greek history and immigration to New York. True to its name, the space is a perfect grip of modern roots, with a seasonally inspired menu and ever-changing ingredient list, intent on supporting Alberta farmers and producers.

General Manager Ashton Copp will warmly greet you at the door and gently whisk you away to a seat on their bright summer patio or upstairs in their dining room, filled with old world charm. The best start to your stay is with a cocktail no doubt, and she is quick to give recommendations with a genuine affection and love for the cocktail and wine list she curates herself.

First up is ‘Ivy’s Lemonade’ – served in a tall Collins glass and shining pink, it’s a fresh blend of Absolut Acai Berri, Absolut Raspberri, lemon juice and cranberries for a sweet and sour finish. Or a summer classic and hot weather antidote, a ‘Pimm’s Cup’ – a bite of ginger ale, fresh mint, cucumber and grapefruit bitters.
