One of London’s best-known institutions, The Ivy Restaurant, has re-opened its doors after some significant refurbishment.
This traditional café in the Soho district, The Ivy Restaurant was a favourite meeting place for many celebrities from 1917 to 1929. Transformed during the 90s into a gastronomic restaurant, today it is the popular haunt of many Londoners. The Ivy Restaurant owes its reputation to impeccable service, its intimate atmosphere and the exceptional quality of the food, with dishes such as its famous Thai sea bass, Dover sole, delicious sticky toffee pudding or traditional Shepherd’s pie.
With its décor of wood and harlequin stained glass, this distinguished establishment has been given a fresh look. The Martin Brudnizki Design Studio designed the restaurant’s refurbishment. After six months’ work, the remodelled décor of this famous restaurant includes an elegant central bar where clients can take a seat and dine directly at the counter. The lovely pillars have also been completely refurbished. Clad in mirrors, with Lalique glass lamps, there is a decidedly modern look to the new interior. A galaxy of stained glass is still key to the gastronomic restaurant’s décor, imparting a diffused and softened light to the whole interior.
If you take a stroll down West Street, why not drop in to the bar of The Ivy Restaurant and try out the new menu, updated for its reopening; it won’t disappoint.
