This summer, one of the world’s most famous restaurants, The Ivy, of West Street in London, will be opening its first international outlet in the heart of Dublin’s city centre.
Located at 13-17 Dawson Street, Dublin, the brasserie is situated in the new landmark building, One Molesworth, and is being overseen by Jamie Belton as General Manager, and Head Chef Nick Lentini.
The restaurant and bar will accommodate approximately 200 guests and feature an all-encompassing menu complete with breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light snacks and dinner. The brasserie will also feature a private dining room called The Jonathan Swift Room, seating up to 36 guests and offering a space for events, birthdays or stylish working lunches.
The Ivy Dawson Street will serve food from dawn until dusk, incorporating a selection of classics including shepherd’s pie, crispy duck salad and a chocolate bombe, alongside a selection of locally inspired dishes such as Dublin Bay prawns and Dungarvan oysters.
Martin Brudnizki Design Studio has consulted on the restaurant’s interiors. Notable features in the restaurant will include floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a central onyx bar, pendant lighting, marble floor tiles, polished parquet panel flooring and leather banquettes.
Jamie Belton, General Manager, said: “Bringing The Ivy Collection’s first international brasserie to Dublin is without doubt the most exciting point of my career. With fantastic food, beautiful interiors and consistent, friendly service, our Irish brasserie will offer a touch of glamour whilst also welcoming guests to visit us anytime, whatever the occasion. The team and I are really looking forward to welcoming our new neighbours and visitors to the area this summer.”
