Another 'accessible all-day dining' brasserie offering from The Ivy stable is slated to open in central Cambridge in spring 2018. The dusk till dawn restaurant will serve breakfast, elevenses, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light snacks, dinner and cocktails.
Harden's survey result
“An attractive brasserie, professionally staffed and competently run” – “and the food is perfectly fine” at the Cambridge branch of Richard Caring’s national roll-out. “The problem with the Ivy Brasseries is that there are too many of them and you can forget which town you’re in as they even look the same”. “There’s nothing really to complain about, they’re just a bit formulaic – like an upmarket Côte!”.
Too few reports as yet for a rating on this Varsity outpost of Richard Caring’s facsimile of the famous star-magnet in London’s Theatreland. All feedback so far is good though.
In a ‘roll-out’ that would do McDonald’s proud, this iconic brand has gone for it this year, opening virtually simultaneously in practically all of the UK’s top restaurant cities. The ambition is impressive: let’s hope standards hold up better than they did when, for example ‘Browns’ tried to pull off a similar trick.
