The Ivy Soho Brasserie Reinvents Itself

Brasserie | 07 Feb 2017

We all know The Ivy, right?  The place that, in its heyday, had Kate Moss falling out over her heels and the la di da theatre goers filled with bubbles post-show.  Well, in recent times, it seems The Ivy has reinvented itself, making it a still sure fire hit, even in this century.  So, it’s no surprise then that we are now welcoming The Ivy Soho Brasserie, a new incarnation still offering that well known beautiful design and, more importantly, delicious food that has become synonymous with The Ivy.

The Ivy Soho Brasserie

The 200-cover space includes a restaurant, bar, private dining room and terrace and is adorned with art inspired by Soho’s music scene and the famous poet, William Blake. If it’s a party you’re after, visit on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday for DJed music and a dead-cert good time.

But it is of course the food that really counts.  Specialising in contemporary British cuisine, and offering dining options anytime of the day, the menu sees a host of old-fashioned comfort food done with typical Ivy flair. Try the eggs Benedict and Royale for breakfast and the brioche crumbed chicken Milanese for dinner – it will not disappoint.

Cocktails too are something of an event.  The Espresso Martini pays tribute to the Soho-based bartender that invented the drink, Dick Bradsell. The Ivy version contains homemade vanilla vodka, espresso liqueur and freshly pulled espresso. The Romantic Era cocktail was created with William Blake in mind and contains Briottet rose liqueur, gin, champagne and hibiscus.

So, there’s a reason then that The Ivy has gone the distance over the years and this newest addition is a welcome contender as one of the best places to dine in Soho.
