The Ivy restaurant in London has for decades been loved by celebrities, super rich business people and theatre goers.
It's safe to say that it is one of the most instantly recognisable restaurant names and brands on the planet.
And now - after a looooong wait of hushed rumours about its opening - The Ivy is coming to Dublin. Located at 13-17 Dawson Street, Dublin, the brasserie is situated in the new landmark building, One Molesworth, and will "bring a touch of Ivy magic to Ireland for local residents, businesses and visitors to enjoy."
The brasserie-style restaurant and bar will accommodate up to 200 guests and feature an all-encompassing menu complete with breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light snacks and dinner.
The brasserie will also feature a private dining room named ‘The Jonathan Swift Room,’ seating up to 36 guests and offering an ideal space for events, birthdays or stylish working lunches.
The Ivy Dawson Street will serve food from dawn until dusk, incorporating a selection of classics including shepherd’s pie, crispy duck salad and an indulgent chocolate bombe, alongside a selection of locally inspired dishes such as Dublin Bay prawns and Dungarvan oysters.
The Ivy's London locations are famed for their slick decor:
Stylish design features in the new restaurant will include floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a striking central onyx bar, beautiful pendant lighting, marble floor tiles, polished parquet panel flooring and leather banquettes.
Jamie Belton, General Manager at The Ivy Dawson Street says: “Bringing The Ivy Collection’s first international brasserie to Dublin is without doubt the most exciting point of my career. With fantastic food, beautiful interiors and consistent, friendly service, our Irish brasserie will offer a touch of glamour whilst also welcoming guests to visit us anytime, whatever the occasion. The team and I are really looking forward to welcoming our new neighbours and visitors to the area this summer.”
We. Are. BUZZING.
