The famous West End restaurant has undergone an extensive refurbishment ahead of its centenary celebrations in 2017.
The ground floor dining area has been redeveloped to feature a 20-cover triangular dining bar with art from Maggi Hambling, Damien Hirst and Ian Davenport.
Upstairs is a 60-cover private dining area, with the bar able to serve cocktails and canapes to 100.
Executive Chef Gary Lee has devised a menu that incorporates many of The Ivy’s classic dishes such as Bang Bang Chicken, Peanuts and Chilli (£9) alongside modern, lighter options including Togarashi Popcorn Rock Shrimp with Kewpie Mayonnaise (£11.50).
Fernando Peire, director of The Ivy, said: “To survive as long as it has the restaurant has always had to remain relevant in order to appeal to the next generation. This has been achieved through our young workforce, our enduringly appealing yet ever-changing menu and our sheer enthusiasm for what we do. Now we have the added bonus of a new interior and a fabulous bar.”
The Ivy will open from 12pm Monday to Saturday with last orders at 11.30pm, and on Sundays from 12pm with last orders at 10.30pm. Reservation lines are now open.
