The Ivy restaurant and private room re-opened at the beginning of June 2015. Martin Brudnizki Design Studio has brought the restaurant, bar and private room firmly into the present day, whilst retaining the essence of what has made The Ivy such a special place for so long.
The iconic harlequin stained glass windows, the green leather banquettes, wood and mirrors, great art and kind lighting are all incorporated in a way that references the past but moves it into the 21st century.
In the kitchen, Executive Chef Gary Lee has created a menu, which includes seasonality and balance, amongst other things. Ivy classics still feature on the menu, but the differences takes into account people’s changes in taste, for example, the Asian section has grown, salads and vegetables are more prolific and the “sea and shells” section has been created because there is a much greater demand for fish and shellfish than before.
