The Ivy

29 Apr

I always feel Sunday has its place for a big dinner and usually I don’t do myself wrong. Tonight I went to one of my favourite places to have dinner, The Ivy near Covent Garden.

It is known for its prestigious food and ambience, not to mention the celebrity clientale that frequent.

From the outset it has mosaic glass panelled coloured windows. The window below the The Ivy lettering has a beautiful moon and stars night scene set in coloured glass.

Inside the lady at the door takes your coat and escorts you through to the dining room.

Every waiter is male and attends to you like you are the queen, VERY attentive.

Our table tonight was lovely, a nice booth with lots of space. The place was packed, the busiest I have ever seen it. Surrounding me is a set of paintings and prints of old film stars.

I ordered the Deep-fried haddock with minted pea purée, chips and tartare sauce.

Dessert was amazing! Wild strawberry & prosecco jelly with gold flakes within the jelly and ripple ice cream which came with strawberries on top in perfect heart shapes. A very girly dessert.
My boyfriend ordered the chocolate pudding and peppermint ice cream, with mint chocolate on top, tasted like After Eights in a bowl, delish!

To finish, I went all Carrie Bradshaw and had a Cosmopolitan.

I do love The Ivy and the food and service is always spectacular. If you are in London I highly recommend visiting. Bookings are essential.



V.I.P hour

26 Apr

Lunchtime is very important, it is time to get away from your desk, chill out, pick up a few things, meet a friend and most importantly EAT!

This week I was introduced to a new site and concept which I think is really cool. Getlunched.com is a site which puts together people who just want to meet for lunch, in the same area and spend their lunch hour either making new friends, sharing ideas, business meeting or even dating!
State why you would like to be having lunch and you even have the option to either pay, go dutch or NOT PAY and someone will for you! Amazing right?

It is currently in Beta but I can see this site really taking off, it’s a great idea and has the potential to be something awesome! If you would like an invite, leave me a comment and I’ll send you the oh so secret code…who knows we could be lunching together very soon!

Anyways today I went for lunch with my work mate Sonia Bonia to Wagamamas. Day after payday, its only right for a nice treat! I got the chicken ramen (every time) and Sonia got the Katsu curry (standard).

Me tucking in!

We got to talking about this Getlunched idea , dating and her perfect man! She is probably one of the sweetest, kindest people with no bad bone in her body and why so single? Well who knows, the worlds a shit place right! So I figured it my duty and call as the female ‘Hitch‘ to pimp her out!

A few qualities we require in her male counterpart:

    -Laughs out loud
    -Walks with a straight back!?
    -Smarter than most of the world
    -6ft tall
    -Older man
    -Rides a bike
    -Likes the theatre

Sweet like Sonia

I like a challenge. If you are this person or know of this person, let me know, I am also happy to pimp out anyone else, just holla!

Arrivederci! I’m off to watch Celeb Juice!
