The Ivy

Dining

The Ivy is certainly a contender for the city's premier restaurant title. The oak-paneled, v-shaped room has stained-glass windows and a superb atmosphere. Diners are some of the most photographed stars of film, theater and society, but absolutely everyone is treated equally. From Corned Beef Hash to caviar, everything is beautifully prepared and well presented. Because of its popularity, you must book at least a month in advance, although if you avoid peak hours you may get a table on short notice.
