New book "The Art of Ixia" to memoralize the late restaurant/lounge
Ixia may be gone, but its memory lives on -- in the glossy pages of a new book.
Called "The Art of Ixia," the limited edition, 150-page coffee table book memorializes the late Mount Vernon restaurant, which closed last June.
It has photos of the interior, food and cocktails, as well as quotes from the chef and recipes.
Why now? ...
"We wanted to generate something so when people visited Ixia and enjoyed it, they could have a memory of Ixia in all its glory," said Danielle McPherson, who is handling the purchasing of the books.
"The Art of Ixia" is a limited edition affair, with only 500 copies printed. It costs $40 per book, plus tax. To order a copy, call McPherson at 410-889-4444 x2.
