Opened on the 15th December 2015, The Ivy Kensington Brasserie, set almost opposite High Street Kensington station, will offer accessible and sophisticated all day dining. As with the restaurant’s sister sites (The Ivy Market Grill, The Ivy Chelsea Garden and the Ivy Café in Marylebone) tables will be held back for walk-ins, and the modern British menu will be all-encompassing, including breakfast, elevenses, lunch, afternoon tea, weekend brunch, light snacks and dinner. 

Menu Highlights

Breakfast

  • Avocado and spinach Benedict
  • Buttermilk pancakes with smoked streaky sweet cured bacon, drizzled with maple syrup

All day

  • Grilled whole lobster with parsley and garlic butter and thick cut chips
  • Brioche crumbed chicken Milanese with fried hen’s egg and black truffle

Dessert

  • Melting chocolate bombe with milk foam, vanilla ice cream and honeycomb centre with hot salted caramel
  • Lemon meringue Alaska – baked meringue with lemon ice cream, lemon sauce and baby basil

Highlights from the bar

  • The Ivy Kensington Royale – served in a coupe, this signature royale combines raspberries macerated with hibiscus, Sipsmith sloe gin, orange bitters and lime, topped with Champagne.
  • The exhibitionist – a take on the classic julep, and named after the Great Exhibition of 1851 – made up of Buffalo Trace Bourbon, blackberry, Briottet crème de figue, mint and lime. 

Design

Critically acclaimed Martin Brudnizki Design Studio led the design of the restaurant. The distinctive space includes a striking antique pewter bar and vintage-style green bar stools. Leather banquettes will be placed alongside striking brass light fixtures, decorative mirrors and marble flooring, creating a sophisticated yet vibrant atmosphere.
