The Ivy Mediterranean Lounge recently opened their flagship restaurant on the northeast corner of Dobson and W. Germann Road in Chandler at the Shops at Pecos Ranch. The Ivy serves to exceed East Valley residents’ expectations with an upscale, casual, hip dining experience for lunch and dinner.
The Ivy has a diverse menu of authentic cuisine from the Komits family’s home country of Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, including:
- Traditional dishes: Saganaki, hummus, sautéed shrimp, eggplant, mussels and bruschetta
- Lunch salads: Traditional Greek, The Ivy Kale, and a chicken and lime cilantro salad
- Lunch specials: Gyro pitas, chicken sandwiches and a fan favorite, fish tacos.
- Dinner menu: Seared sea bass, flank steak with sautéed vegetables, lamb skewers and a variety of pasta dishes.
“I wanted to create a new concept here in Chandler; I love this community. We’ve had a great success with Cyprus Grill, which opened four years ago,” said Christodoulos Komitis, co-owner of The Ivy. “The city’s economic growth and development inspired me to open The Ivy, offering Mediterranean food at a fun bar atmosphere perfect for lunch, happy hour and dinner. I wanted a beautiful place to hang out, eat great food and enjoy a drink without having to drive all the way to Phoenix or Scottsdale. We want to be part of the growing dining scene in Chandler.” Being a long-time resident in Chandler, Komitis has chosen to open The Ivy at the Shops at Pecos Ranch, a community center owned by Whitestone REIT, because of their strategic location to serve the Chandler community.
The Ivy features 12 beers on tap, including craft, seasonal, and local beers from San Tan Brewing and Huss Brewery. The bar serves a variety of wines both by the glass and bottle. Sangria and popular specialty cocktails are also available. The large bar area opens to a spacious 3,500-square-foot patio with fire pits, comfortable lounge seating and lightly lit lanterns. The owners want guests to enjoy “Patio Drinks and Mediterranean Eats” in this casual, modern venue.
Private dining is also available for groups up to 30 guests in a space that is perfect for corporate luncheons and birthday celebrations.
