Brush shoulders at The Ivy

The Ivy, a renowned restaurant in Covent Garden, London, has long been known as something of a celebrity haunt - and indeed famous faces can often be seen in its opulent art deco surroundings. However, the main appeal is its food - a modern take on traditional British cuisine, with a focus on seasonal produce.
