The Ivy Brasserie

The Ivy Kensington Brasserie is the fourth offshoot from the Richard Caring restaurant brand. It’s the neighbourhood version of the Ivy where customers are likely to pop in for a cup of tea rather than a three course meal. Situated right in the heart of Kensington High Street, the restaurant is opposite the train station and open from 0730 to catch the early commuter’s right through to supper and everything in-between. Highlights on the menu include: griddled buttermilk pancakes with smoked streaky sweet-cured bacon and maple syrup, grilled whole lobster with parsley and garlic butter and the classic Ivy dessert the melting chocolate bombe with milk foam, vanilla ice cream and a honeycomb centre with a hot salted caramel sauce.

“Working with The Ivy group is always exciting. Located in fantastic sites around London and attracting big celebrity names, it’s great to be a part of its eagerly awaited restaurant openings. The Ivy Brasserie is different to its sister restaurants, it’s more casual and laid back as half the restaurant is dedicated to walk-ins. It’s definitely going to be as popular as the other restaurants.”

Sophisticated elegance.

Martin Brudnizki Design Studio oversaw the interior of the Ivy Brasserie. There is a striking emerald bar and a ten cover table on a raised area. As the Ivy Brasserie restaurant is more relaxed than of its sister restaurants, 40% of the 138 seat restaurant is table-cloth free for informal visits such as morning coffee and afternoon tea and the other is for formal sit down meals. Vintage style green bar stools, leather banquette, marble floors and decorative mirrors all combine to create a sophisticated, elegant restaurant.

Variation in cooking technique.

With the Ivy Brasserie being in a prestigious location our priority was to install a HVAC system to cope the demands of an all-day restaurant. The broad menu range means that the cooking style of each dish can vary from dry heat to a more aggressive and greasy cooking technique, therefore a reliable and effective system is needed. That’s why we installed a HVAC system to deal with the smoke, grease and odour generated from the different cooking techniques. Not only does it make the kitchen a comfortable environment to work in but also keeps the restaurant fresh and cool.
