About Ida Claire
Ida Claire is an intriguing, southern influenced restaurant & bar. The elevated southern cuisine has influences from different regions. You’ll most likely see dishes you’ve heard of before but with little twists here and there. Their sandwiches will be served on biscuits and they’ll have chicken and waffles on every menu. Brunch is obviously southern and are a big part of what they do. The drinks are takes on classics like the Mint Julep but revved up and including a lot of house made ingredients. They’ll have several different house bitters and a house gin. The décor has a southern influence with antebellum charm and elegant polish, stated most clearly in their reworked air stream trailer parked in the garden for VIP reservations. The whole restaurant feels like a quirky southern aristocrat’s home…just not exactly what you might think.
