Restaurant Review: Ivy Chelsea Garden, Chelsea Sunday Lupper Club
Fashion Features & Entertainment Assistant, Josie Ayre heads out to dinner and a film on the King's Road...
Is there anything more homely than a Shepherd’s Pie, I ask you? As far as I’m aware, I don’t think there is and the reknowned Ivy chain of restaurants has capitalized on the nations love of the dish by building it’s world renowned reputation upon the pillowy mash potato of the humble pie.
The Ivy name is associated with one of the most prestitigious restaurants in the capital, with the original opening all the way back in 1917 in London’s West End. Since then, it’s gone on to host an Oscar’s ceremonies worth of celebrities (including Sally Fields, who I saw on my last visit) and has now spanned a few just-as-well-heeled sister restaurants, including the Ivy Chelsea Garden which was opened in 2015.
Situated on the King’s Road (oh so MIC, darling), the Ivy Chelsea Garden is an aesthetically beautiful restaurant with a garden space at the back for those who are brave enough to enjoy in the Winter months and those who are smart enough to arrive early to in the Summer months.
The restaurant has recently partnered with the Curzon cinema across the road to offer the ‘Chelsea Sunday Lupper Club’ which is an upgrade on your usual ‘film and a takeaway’ evenings, where you can book tickets for the cinema and then book a table at the restaurant to enjoy their special menu of Shepherd’s Pie with champagne for afters.
Myself and my boyfriend sauntered along the King’s Road (or KR as he called it. No comment on that one) in time for our 5.20pm showing ofA Bigger Splash.An indie film featuring Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenarts, Tilda Swinton and many an appearance from Ralph Fiennes penis.
The Luca Guadagnino film, follows famous rock star, Marianne (Tilda) and her recovering alcoholic boyfriend, Paul (Matthias) as their idyllic holiday in Italy is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Marianne’s ex-lover Harry (Ralph) and his supposed daughter, Penelope (Dakota). Interesting and puzzling at the same time, A Bigger Splash is the kind of film which leaves you thinking, ‘did I miss something?’ and will have you scouring film reviews after to try and get in on the joke, but nonetheless it was enjoyable and watching Tilda in action is always a pleasure.
