New restaurant and bar at IP Casino Resort

26 September 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Bayview Café and 850 Wine & Spirits, an all-new drinking and dining experience at IP Casino Resort and Spa, is now open.

The new, lively restaurant and bar presents an inviting space for both locals and visitors alike to enjoy throughout the day and evening. The venue features breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night dining, elevated bar snacks and delectable libations.

The space
Located off of the hotel lobby, just inside the main entry, Bayview Café and 850 Wine & Spirits offers an ideal location to relax and socialize in modern style. The lounge showcases an expansive, open atmosphere highlighted by walnut plank floors, whitewashed brick partitions, cognac leather sofas and a jewel-like glassed-in wine room at its heart. The 375-seat café presents a spacious dining room with a sophisticated feel, featuring design elements that offer a nod to Biloxi’s maritime history and tradition.

The cuisine
With Executive Chef Shannon Johnson at the helm, the opening chef team has designed an elaborate, regionally-themed menu featuring a wide variety of options. Dishes span from Mississippi Gulf seafood and coastal favorites to Asian-inspired items, while also retaining guests’ mainstream favorites from the former Costa Cucina restaurant. Highlights of the new menu include:
  • Ocean fresh catch: Mississippi-Style Seafood Gumbo with cast iron roux, fresh shrimp and blue crab; Mater Crab Cakes with fried green tomato slices, creole crab and crawfish.
  • Asian-inspired: Seoul Food Korean style braised beef short rib, red curry carrot puree, napa cabbage kim chee; and Bahn Mi Taco with char sui glazed smoked pork, fresh jalapeno, thin cucumber, sweet pickled daikon and carrot, cilantro and sambal chili aioli.
  • Mainstream favorites: Brick Oven-Baked Pizzas; The Sandwich Board with tastes like the Korean Short Rib and Blue Crab BLT; Appetizers like White Bean Soup; and Entrees like Chicken Parmesan and Southern Pot Roast.
  • Desserts: House-Made Bourbon Beignets and Boozy Nanner Cream Pie.
The drinks
850 Wine & Spirits is a distinctly different bar that offers a unique Enomatic wine system where wine enthusiasts can sample a robust variety of wines in optional pour sizes including 1, 2.5 and 5-ounce pours. Along with a full bar, creative cocktail menu, and shareable food options, 850 Wine & Spirits will be the place where locals and guests frequent to enjoy “Social Hour” from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. or stop in for a nightcap after an evening of entertainment and gaming.
