For starters, Ida Claire has added four new scratch-made salads featuring fresh spring produce to keep guests cool during North Texas’ notoriously hot summer days:

Several other items on the brunch, lunch and supper menus have been freshened-up as well, so stop by soon and get your fill of Ida Claire’s chef-driven favorites.

Ida Claire – South of Ordinary – is an intriguing, southern-inspired destination for relaxing suppers and slow weekend brunching, as well as a meeting hub for business lunches and happy hours.
