Ivy at the Glenn: Celebrate Seasonal Food

May 20, 2015 4:02 pm

Good food changes with the seasons when you come to Ivy at the Glenn. Located at the fountain where Commons Avenue meets Gaylord Street, Ivy at the Glenn is a contemporary spot where fresh, seasonal ingredients are used to make dishes that are as appetizing to the eyes as they are to the palate. The dining room is modern and comfortable, with interesting touches. Where else are you going to find a wall decorated with tree trunks? It’s special without being stuffy. When the weather’s nice, you can also dine on the patio. The lunch and dinner menu always features a seasonal soup, along with burgers, and small plate and large plate specials (if the French onion soup is being served, you are a lucky person). Complement your meal with a selection from the extensive wine list. The friendly service completes your experience!

How to Pour Wine Like a Pro Sommelier

May 13, 2015 4:03 pm

You don’t have to splurge on a $100 aged Cabernet Sauvignon to seem like a real wine expert; all it takes are a few smart tips and some essential wine-serving tools. Follow these simple steps to impress your guests the next time you serve them a glass of red.

  1. Maintain the proper temperature. A surefire way to come across as a newbie wine drinker is by serving your bottle at the wrong temperature. Light or sparkling white wines should be served at 40 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit to maintain their fresh flavor, while fuller whites and lighter reds should be 50 to 60 degrees. For full-bodied reds, stick to a warmer 60 degrees.
  2. Stock up on enough wine. It could be embarrassing to run out of wine before everyone has their fill, so as a general rule, imagine that each bottle serves approximately five glasses.
  3. Invest in good wine glasses. They don’t have to be expensive, but having real wine glasses does add to the experience. Also, be sure to wash the glasses by hand and dry them with a clean linen towel to ensure that they don’t affect the flavor of the wine.
  4. Fill the proper amount. As a general rule, fill the glass to just below its widest point. This will make you look like a true sommelier and make your guests feel like wine aficionados themselves.
