The newest addition to the Ivy restaurant empire opens in Canary Wharf next week, on October 16, writes Laura Burgoine…

The Ivy in the Park in Canada Square Park promises sophisticated and friendly all-day dining. Set within one of Canary Wharf’s most sustainable buildings, it will overlook a vibrant green outdoor space, which hosts events throughout the year.

Open seven days a week, the brasserie will serve an all-encompassing menu, complete with modern British classics and international inspired dishes served for breakfast, elevenses, coffees, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light snacks, cocktails and dinner.

Overseen by Executive Chef Sean Burbidge, menus will include a selection of Ivy classics such as The Ivy shepherd’s pie, brioche crumbed chicken Milanese and a melting chocolate bombe.

The Ivy in the Park seats 146 guests across the main restaurant and bar (split across two floors), alongside two outside terraces seating up to 88 guests. For group dining, a larger table of 12 can be booked in the restaurant.

The Ivy Collection is a group of restaurants, brasseries and cafés established in London, originating with the Ivy, West Street 100 years ago, and offering accessible, all-day dining in a relaxed, local setting.

The Ivy in the Park is located at 50 Canada Square Park, E14 5FW. Phone: 020 3971 7111. The restaurant is taking reservations now.
