The group behind the world-famous celebrity haunt The Ivy in London will open its latest restaurant in the heart of Birmingham city centre on April 11.

Birmingham Live was given an exclusive preview of The Ivy Temple Row - a lavish new 155 cover restaurant spanning three floors. The stunning interior suggests Brummies will most definitely feel like a celebrity dining there.

It is one of the most anticipated restaurant openings in Birmingham this year.

The Ivy Temple Row

The signature green colour palettes complete with plush leather banquettes, marble floors and intricate artwork inspired by Birmingham all aim to give off the ultimate wow factor.

The sense of grandeur is emphasised by the private dining room on the third floor. The Archer Room - The room is named after Thomas Archer who designed St Philip's Cathedral - seats 20 people with views overlooking the cathedral.

The new Ivy Temple Row is housed in the former Louis Vuitton boutique and although it retains the luxury feel, it does not have the designer prices to match.

Brum latest restaurant with 130 staff, is part of The Ivy collection of brasseries - offering ‘“extensive all-day menus featuring the best of modern British dishes in a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere”.

A three course set menu costs £21. Main dishes include roast salmon, red pepper, olive and chimichurri fregola, lemon and baby basil and steak and mushroom pudding -steamed suet pudding, turned vegetables and red wine sauce.

On the A la carte menu, there is a nod to the original Ivy heritage. As well as celebrity diners, The Ivy is famous for their signature comfort food dishes such as its shepherd’s pie. The Ivy shepherd’s pie (£13.75) comprises of slow-braised lamb shoulder with beef and Wookey Hole Cheddar potato mash.

Inside The Ivy Temple Row

Charley Springall, head of marketing said: “Our food is very well priced and I think some people are surprised by that, they’re expecting celebrity The Ivy London prices.

"We have brasserie prices for our food. We are very accessible - we don't want people to think pricey dining when they see white table cloths and super smartly dressed serving staff. We focus on impeccable service and knowledgeable staff who know everything about the food and drink menus.

“A set menu here is great value whether you go for two or three courses. There is also a dedicated weekend brunch menu with some alternatives to our mid-week à la carte.”

On the brunch menu choose from eggs Benedict and chips £11.50 - pulled honey roast ham on toasted English muffins, two poached hen’s eggs, hollandaise sauce, watercress and thick cut chips for £11.50.

Or how about hot buttermilk pancakes (£8.95) strawberries, raspberries and blackberries with Greek yogurt, lemon balm and warm strawberry sauce. Afternoon tea is also available Monday - Sunday 3pm - 5pm.

Ms Springall added: "It was important we found the right site before committing to opening in Birmingham. We have Ivy brasseries all over the UK and Birmingham has been on a radar for a while but we did not want to rush things. With this location and unit we knew it was perfect for our aim - we're keen to become part of the local community."

The city centre's most colourful restaurant Comptoir Libanais has opened in Grand Central

"If that means people calling up requesting a seat by the window or on our beautiful second floor space we will do our best to accommodate. We will also set aside some space for walk ins. And people are welcome to sit at our bar if there is space and enjoy a cocktail while they wait for a table."

The Ivy Temple Row is the latest restaurant to be opening in the city centre alongside other new eateries including Revolucion de Cuba on Temple Street and Comptoir Libanais at Grand Central.
