Eat a weekday breakfast at The Ivy
This year, Richard Caring’s theatre land eatery, The Ivy, celebrates its centenary. On 10th May, for the first time in that century, it is possible to eat a weekday breakfast at The Ivy. Last year, the restaurant closed for a major refurbishment by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, then reopened with a remarkable transformation that remains faithful to its iconic green leather barquettes, stained glass and great art.
Gary Lee, the executive chef, has created a varied menu catering to all tastes. Devotees of the English breakfast will be able to tuck into the traditional dish or the vegetarian option, and there is a section of the menu devoted to eggs cooked in whatever style the guest chooses, such as baked, boiled, poached or scrambled.
For those who want a lighter option, why not try one of the Super Seed Bowls with fresh fruit, or choose from a selection of cereals, including traditional Scottish oat porridge? The bakery section is a treat all on its own: freshly baked bread served with nut spreads and jams, sumptuous pastries, pancakes, waffles and French toast are all on the menu. Your breakfast can be washed down with a choice of fruit juices or smoothies.
Teas and coffees
For the perfect morning pick-me-up, order a rich cup of coffee. The Ivy's coffees, including a medium-roast Kenyan filter coffee and a Peruvian espresso, are from the British family-run coffee experts Street & Co. Those who enjoy a nice cup of tea in the morning can choose from the extensive range of teas from The East India Tea Company.
When to go
You can treat yourself to this special breakfast Mondays to Fridays, from 8 -10.30 am. Booking lines will be open from Tuesday 3rd May.
