The Ivy Review

The triple A list spurns The Ivy for its upstairs private members' club (and other luxe spots like Scott's, 34, and Berners Tavern) but, nonetheless, this venerable landmark still receives a thousand calls a day! A mesmerizing mix of daytime TV stars, gawkers, day-trippers, and out-of-towners dine on salt-beef hash, squash risotto, Thai-baked sea bass, salmon fish cakes, eggs Benedict, and good ol' English classics like Shepherd's pie or kedgeree (curried rice with smoked haddock, egg, and parsley) in a handsome mullioned stained-glass and oak-paneled dining salon. Desserts are standards like Baked Alaska or sticky toffee pudding, service is unfailingly professional, and for low-to-mid wattage West End star-spotting this is still a happy hunting ground. If you can't snag a table by phone or online, try walking in on spec—it's been known to work.
