'We serve the loin with a black pepper sauce, parsnip puree and parsnip crisps. In the summer we serve it with a wild blackberry sauce.

'As a chef I enjoy the deep flavours that we get from our venison stock and that contrast with the tender meat of the loin. It is a wonderful flavourful lean meat that takes to deep sauces or summer fruits or even dried fruits like apricots.'

The Ivy
1-5 West Street
London
WC2H 9NQ
Tel: 020 7836 4751

When owner Abel Giandellini and Maitre d'Hotel Mario Gallati joined forces in 1917, their modest café soon gained favour amongst the theatre community. The name The Ivy was adopted when actress Alice Delysia quoted a popular song of the day "don't worry, we will always come to see you, we will cling together like the ivy". The space we know today closely resembles the grand restaurant created by the original duo back in their heyday. Over the years The Ivy changed hands on numerous occasions but in 1990 it underwent a renaissance and was refurbished and re-launched with leading contemporary artists creating site-specific commissions. Today, the Ivy still caters to the theatre crowd, attracting a wide variety of customers from the arts and media as well. The brasserie-style menu continues to offer favourites such as bang bang chicken, Thai-baked sea bass with fragrant rice and soy dip and Shepherd's pie and The Ivy hamburger.
