Fall in love with The Ivy again as the new Autumn menu drops
Emma Chadwick | 6th October 2020
The evergreen Ivy Manchester, now with a new outside ground floor terrace btw, is a beacon of luxury where all COVID blues can be left at the door for a thoroughly indulgent feast with its new, brasserie autumnal menu.
All your favorites are still there but some have been given a new season make-over.
The biggest changes are to the starters (from £6.75) and VIVA loved the new beetroot carpaccio which looked as pretty as autumn leaves with its vibrant purple hues and tasted rich, tangy and velvety in equal measures.
VIVA’s favourite chicken liver parfait in the city was too good to resist and lived up to its predecessors all washed down with a light Beaujolais (wine from £21 a bottle).
The décor and discreet COVID precautions mean the brasserie is a lovely room where art deco clashes with vibrant prints with plump cushioned booths stylishly cosy.
Mains (from £13.95) have not changed much other than the chicken Milanese which has been tweaked with a truffle sauce and daily, seasonal specials which VIVA opted for enjoying a fresh turbot, cooked to perfection.
