The Ivy Dawson Street - sister restaurant of London celebrity hotspot - to open in Ireland this summer
London's The Ivy restaurant is one of Britain's best known celebrity hangouts, enjoyed by the likes of Victoria and David Beckham, model Kate Moss, and Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prince Harry.
Within the next few months, The Ivy Collection will open its first international brasserie in the heart of Dublin’s city centre.
The Ivy Dawson Street, which will open in the new One Molesworth building, will be overseen by Jamie Belton as General Manager, and Head Chef Nick Lentini.
The brasserie-style restaurant will join the likes of Michelin starred The Greenhouse, Marco Pierre White's Steakhouse and Grill, and Carluccio's italian restaurant.
The new restaurant and bar will accommodate up to 200 guests and serve breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light snacks and dinner.
A private dining room named ‘The Jonathan Swift Room,’ will seat up to 36 guests and offering an ideal space for events, birthdays or stylish working lunches.
Classics served will include shepherd’s pie, crispy duck salad and an indulgent chocolate bombe, as well as locally inspired dishes like Dublin Bay prawns and Dungarvan oysters.
The Martin Brudnizki Design Studio has consulted on the restaurant’s interiors which will feature floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a central onyx bar, marble floor tiles, polished parquet panel flooring and leather banquettes.
Jamie Belton, General Manager at The Ivy Dawson Street says: “With fantastic food, beautiful interiors and consistent, friendly service, our Irish brasserie will offer a touch of glamour whilst also welcoming guests to visit us anytime, whatever the occasion.”
