Littleton’s Carboy Winery takes over the corner of Seventh Avenue and Logan Street with a daytime restaurant specializing in breakfast, lunch, and brunch dishes. Ivy on 7th brings dishes from chef Rebecca Weitzman to the former Lala’s Wine Bar space.
The menu features smashed avocado and a grilled mushroom toast, lemon ricotta pancakes, shaksuka, and breakfast sandwiches such as the Ivy Cristo with ham, brie, and apricot jam between slices of French toast. Lunch dishes include a vegan Reuben and warm house-roasted turkey.
Diners can head to a grab-and-go area that offers espresso drinks, fresh-baked pastries, sandwiches, salads, and more.
Weitzman graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and went on to work for Frank Bonanno to open Mizuna and Luca D’Italia. Most recently, she ran a farm-to-table wedding and event venue on a 500-acre wooded setting called Cedar Lakes Estate in Greenville, New York. She also competed on Iron Chef America and won Food Network’s Chopped.
Parent company Carboy expanded to Breckenridge with a second winery and tasting room last year, and plans to open a third location around the corner from Ivy in the former home of Govnr’s Park Tavern.
