All seems right with the world when you are dining on charming patio at The Ivy
Friends and clients often ask me which L A restaurant is my overall favorite. I always have the same answer - The Ivy. I am partial to the location on Robertson Blvd. Where do I start? The Ivy is inviting and comfortable. It does not take itself too seriously. The waiters are attentive without being intrusive. The patio is lovely. The quaint indoor rooms are cozy as well. And the food is glorious! Every single item is excellent - from their bread to the dessert. A few of my personal favorites are the corn chowder, vegetable soup, crab cakes, crab meat salad with spicy thousand island dressing, grilled vegetable salad, fried chicken and mouth watering New York Steak. Save room for the best chocolate chip cookies and their classic ice cream sundae. One of the reasons The Ivy is packed every night is the fact that they have kept their menu classic. Many restaurants try too hard and the result is mediocre food with too many ingredients that just do not work together. The chefs at The Ivy always get it right. The food is consistent, seasoned perfectly and the ingredients are always fresh.
I am asked to try sweets of all varieties almost weekly. Most of the time they are too rich or too sweet or simply lacking in flavor.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover a wonderful new shop at 315 North Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills that bakes fantastic brownies. My favorites are the petite brownies that are the perfect size and just melt in your mouth. This sweet shop is the brainchild of Bobbie Greenfield.
After a successful career as a marketing executive, Bobbie Greenfield found herself facing the economic challenges that plagued Corporate America during the recent recession.
Looking for a less stressful and more creative approach she turned to her favorite pastime - Baking. Bobbie combined old family recipes and experimented to create her own unique goods.
In 2009 after perfecting her signature brownies, Bobbie transitioned her at-home hobby of baking into a commercial venture. She first launched a website and just a few months ago opened this wonderful retail shop in Beverly Hills. The brownies come in eighteen interesting flavors such as cream cheese chocolate chip, peanut brittle, mocha latte and of course the classic brownie baked with or without nuts. The brownies are great favors as well as appreciated gifts.
