Summary

“A dilution of the Ivy name” – the cheaper, more bistro-esque ‘Café’ sub-brand is “a woeful imitation of the original” that’s “all style and has nothing else to recommend it”. Even many of those recommending breakfast – its best feature – say the results are “very predictable”, and later in the day you get “standard pub grub-type food at fine dining prices” served by “brittle” and “amateur” staff. “Avoid at all costs!”

Summary

Richard Caring continues to expand his most bankable brand, The Ivy, with a casual café offering due to open November-2015 on the former site of Union Café (RIP) in Marylebone; let’s hope it has better food than the other recent spin-offs.
