The IvyThe Ivy emerges from an extensive refurbishment in 2015 with more natural day light, a dining bar for twenty, and the features that made it famous - the wood panelling, the harlequin stained glass windows and works by British artists - added to with striking new pieces by Maggi Hambling, Damien Hirst and Ian Davenport which dominate the rear of the dining room. Where the bar once stood, the restaurant now opens up, and there are curved banquettes, four-seat booths and more corner tables than before. Executive chef Gary Lee has come up with a menu that incorporates many of The Ivy's classic dishes - the legendary Shepherd's pie and The Ivy hamburger remain - but there are lighter dishes and a section dedicated entirely to potatoes. There's raw and pickled vegetable salad with chia and citrus vinaigrette, corn-fed chicken breast with pumkin pistou and mojo verde, and tossed salad of barbecued squid with chorizo and toasted quinoa. Asian influences come in the form of Yellowtail tuna sashimi, pickled ginger, wasabi cucumber pearls, and Togarashi popcorn rock shrimp with kewpie mayonnaise. For desserts, an old-school Knickerbocker Glory reveals a fun side, whilst more serious desserts like Amalfi lemon panna cotta with raspberry granita or Gooseberry and elderflower pie adapt with the seasons. With this refurb the legendary restaurant - one of the most famous in the world - a stalwart of the London scene since 1917 looks set to stay in fashion for another 100 years.

Dress code: Ties are not required. Gentlemen are requested not to wear shorts. Best to put your best frock on - the paparazzi regularly camp outside to get a snapshot of the A-listers who dine here.
