Arnold Ivey crafts a new menu at London’s Avenue in St James


Oysters from all over the UK, fresh fish caught that morning and incredible wholesome, borderline umami flavours, the new menu by the UK chef is one to try.

Arnold Ivey’s stints at the likes of London institutions like Bluebird Chelsea, Orrery in Marylebone, Paternoster Chop House (the first dates restaurant) and Kensington Place before it shut down, all contribute to the stunning new menu.

Sure, they do the Avenue classics that draw the regulars, like the Avenue Cheeseburger and Classic Chicken Caesar Salad, but it’s the new seafood additions that are really worth the visit.

Think whole seabass off the bone, mussels, fish and chips, yellowfin tuna tartare with cucumber, apple and seeded crackers, Severn & Wye smoked salmon, served alongside soda bread, capers shallots and dill cream, and the famous lobster roll with Mary Rose sauce and fries available on the weekend brunch menu.

And top it all off with new dessert options like a house-made strawberry Avenue take on the eton mess and a sensationally tart lemon meringue. Both musts!

Head to the Avenue at 7-9, St James’s St, St. James’s, London SW1A 1EE or their website to book your experience.
