Model Answer:


Dear Sir,

I recently visited Hotel Ivy, located in Downtown, Minneapolis. I am writing to share my unforgettable experience and describe the delicious lunch I had at the restaurant. 

I vividly remember that I visited the hotel on Black Friday, specifically on November 13th along with my family. I was really excited about the number of choices that they offered for lunch. I ordered chicken Biryani along with Raita. It is my favorite dish. It was very tasty and well-cooked. Moreover, it was garnished very well and tempting. In addition to lunch, they have several varieties of desserts to choose from as well. We chose Mexican Sweet Grill and it was lip-smacking as well.

I would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone, especially those who are looking to dine outside on special occasions. I would rate it a five on five. The location of the restaurant and the lively atmosphere can make anyone's day brighter. Furthermore, they arrange a concert every day. I would definitely give a thumbs up to this restaurant and especially appreciate the wide variety of dishes that they offer at an affordable price! 

I hope that I have given some valuable information that could help people who are on the lookout for some great restaurants. 

Yours faithfully,

Jane Doe.
