The Ivy is the iconic centrepiece of Spinningfields. Everything here screams luxury, from the nature-themed architecture outside to the relaxing and eccentric interior, with those spacious long sofas ideal for kicking back and absorbing the romantic atmosphere while you dine.
The menu features an array of exotic dishes with something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a meaty pick or a vegetarian option. First, truffled wild mushrooms with a potato rosti, fried quail’s egg and grated truffle. The mushrooms are pleasantly soft, with a firm bite, pairing well with the crunchy rosti and delicate quail’s egg.
An 8oz steak is a welcome surprise as it’s a rare sight on a set menu, and it comes with a San Marziano tomato and basil salad on the side. The steak, cooked rare, arrived with a gentle sear and smoky flavour – no corners were cut when sourcing this meat. The tomatoes are vibrant and bursting with freshness, making them the perfect companion for this show-stopping steak.
