The Ivy Soho Brasserie Reinvents Itself

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.
