The Caprice Restaurant Group is set to open the Ivy Market Grill, café and restaurant in Covent Garden.
Aimed at offering regulars to the Ivy a relaxed all-day alternative, the new restaurant will be headed up by chef Sean Burbidge when it opens next week (24 November 2014).
The "eclectic" Modern British menus will feature comfort food and international dishes and run through breakfast, elevenses, a la carte lunch and dinner, pre and post theatre, afternoon tea and weekend brunch.
Sample dishes include: avocado, tomato and sesame, truffled eggs, griddled buttermilk pancakes (breakfast); crispy duck salad, lobster cocktail, rack of lamb and whole lemon sole (lunch and dinner).
The Ivy Market Grill drinks list is expected to include its own gin and Champagne alongside a range of cocktails, craft beers and IPAs.
Martin Brudnizki Design Studio was responsible for the interior of the two-floor venue, taking inspiration from the late 19th century industrial age. Design elements include mosaic floor tiles, antique brass chandeliers, distressed paintwork and marble table tops in the café area.
