The Ivy

April 29, 2012

I always feel Sunday has its place for a big dinner and usually I don’t do myself wrong. Tonight I went to one of my favourite places to have dinner, The Ivy near Covent Garden.

It is known for its prestigious food and ambience, not to mention the celebrity clientale that frequent.

From the outset it has mosaic glass panelled coloured windows. The window below the The Ivy lettering has a beautiful moon and stars night scene set in coloured glass.

Inside the lady at the door takes your coat and escorts you through to the dining room.

Every waiter is male and attends to you like you are the queen, VERY attentive.

Our table tonight was lovely, a nice booth with lots of space. The place was packed, the busiest I have ever seen it. Surrounding me is a set of paintings and prints of old film stars.

I ordered the Deep-fried haddock with minted pea purée, chips and tartare sauce.

Dessert was amazing! Wild strawberry & prosecco jelly with gold flakes within the jelly and ripple ice cream which came with strawberries on top in perfect heart shapes. A very girly dessert.
My boyfriend ordered the chocolate pudding and peppermint ice cream, with mint chocolate on top, tasted like After Eights in a bowl, delish!

To finish, I went all Carrie Bradshaw and had a Cosmopolitan.

I do love The Ivy and the food and service is always spectacular. If you are in London I highly recommend visiting. Bookings are essential.
