The Ivy marks the official start of spring with a new, seasonal menu
This spring equinox, The Ivy St Johns Wood launches a delectable new menu embracing the flavours of spring. With a sense of freshness and renewal, guests will be taken on a journey of rediscovery with a selection of delights featuring ingredients that the new season brings to our tables.
Launching on the official first day of spring, diners will be able to enjoy a series of seasonal favourites that spotlight the best of British ingredients. The new menu will feature a number of artisanal British suppliers, with new dishes including Garden Pea & Nettle Soup (£6.95), Grilled Asparagus with Szechuan mayonnaise, capers, flaked almonds, quail’s egg and watercress (£8.50), and a renewed selection of steaks, all truly capturing the essence of the changing seasons.
Those with a sweet tooth will be able to enjoy a new Black Bee Honey and White Chocolate Cheesecake (£9.25), featuring UK-based Black Bee Honey and accompanied by mango sorbet, honeycomb and edible flowers.
Chris Barnes, Beekeeper and founder of Black Bee Honey says: “We were delighted when The Ivy chose to use our honey for their spring menu. It’s a mixed floral variety sourced from hives in Northamptonshire. This honey was selected for its light, sweet flavour and runny quality, making it ideal for desserts such as this.”
Alongside new dishes, guests will be able to enjoy a delicious and refreshing selection of spring cocktails, including French Garden 75 (£12.25), incorporating Hendricks Gin, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, sugar, lime, cucumber & The Ivy Collection Champagne and a Sparkling Peartini (£12.50), featuring a sumptuous blend of Grey Goose Le Poire, Italicus Bergamot Liqueur, Lillet Blanc, lemon & The Ivy Collection Champagne.
The Ivy St Johns Wood will also be offering a limited-edition dessert this Easter. The Easter Nest (£9.95) is a sumptuous dark and white chocolate mousse, accompanied by Kataifi pastry, chocolate sponge and lemon balm, available on Easter weekend only from Friday, 15 to Monday, 18 April.
Beth Harding, General Manager at The Ivy St Johns Wood comments: “With reimagined favourites alongside a selection of new dishes, our new menu celebrates the best ingredients the spring season has to offer. A visit to The Ivy is the perfect reawakening of the senses after a long winter.”
