One of London’s most famous restaurants, The Ivy, is opening a branch in St Albans

One of London’s most famous restaurants, the Ivy, is opening a branch in St Albans in a few weeks in premises formerly occupied by Brasserie Blanc, which has closed.

The original Ivy in Covent Garden is a long-standing luxury celebrity venue and the company has now set up the Ivy Collection with plans for all-day brasseries in key markets offering modern British and Ivy-inspired classics seven days a week.

The London restaurant, which marked its 100th anniversary last year, became known as a regular haunt for A-listers including Tom Cruise, Madonna, David and Victoria Beckham, Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman and Kate Hudson.

The St Albans restaurant on Verulam Road, in the heart of the city close to the medieval Clock Tower, will serve breakfast, elevenses, lunch, weekend brunch, afternoon tea and dinner in what the company calls ‘the relaxed yet sophisticated style for which the Ivy is renowned’.

Demand is expected to be heavy but a number of unreserved tables will be available daily for drop-in customers.

The opening is scheduled for ‘spring/summer’.
