Ivy Kensington Brasserie to open on 15 December
The latest restaurant under the Ivy brand, the Ivy Kensington Brasserie, is set to open next month in the place of Pavilion restaurant and bar opposite High Street Kensington tube station in London.
As with its sister sites, the Ivy Market Grill, the Ivy Chelsea Garden and the Ivy Café in Marylebone, it will offer a modern British menu, encompassing breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, weekend brunch and dinner, and the menu will be overseen by executive chef Sean Burbidge.
General manager of the 138-cover restaurant, which opens on 15 December, will be Richard Moore.
Typical dishes on the breakfast and brunch menu include: avocado and spinach Benedict and griddled buttermilk pancakes with smoked streaky sweet-cured bacon, drizzled with maple syrup.
Meanwhile, on the all-day menu, dishes include: grilled whole lobster with parsley and garlic butter and thick cut chips; brioche crumbed chicken Milanese with fried hen's egg and black truffle.
Martin Brudnizki Design Studio has consulted on the Ivy Kensington Brasserie's interior, which features a striking emerald bar and a 10-cover table, strategically positioned on a raised area creating a great vantage point over the restaurant.
