London’s longest standing celeb-spotting hotspot, The Ivy is fabled more for its clientele and exclusivity than its food – think screen stars, not Michelin stars. Having held the title of ‘London’s most hard-to-book table’ since its late nineties battles with newcomers like Nobu, this Covent Garden institution has somehow managed to retain its A-List animal magnetism.
