The first Asian-inspired concept at Ivy Asia in Sussex opens today, Tuesday 12th July.
Located on Ship Street, the restaurant is spread over two floors. It’s open seven days a week for lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and weekend brunch.
On Thursday last week numerous guests gathered to celebrate the opening of the restaurant.
Attendees enjoyed a range of canapés, from lobster wonton with black truffle and yuzo kosho to roasted wagyu beef with barbecue glaze, while those with a sweet tooth savored coconut mochi ice cream and passion fruit coconut donuts.
Drinks included exclusive cocktails, champagne, wines and beers, as well as entertainment from taiko drummers and a live DJ who helped create the evening’s soundtrack.
Guests were greeted by bright green onyx flooring and a 19th-century glass-domed skylight that sat above the cocktail bar.
Furnished with colorful artwork, Asian fabrics, wallpaper and antiques, the restaurant is designed as an “elegant yet vibrant place”.
Celebrity attendees included: Anna Maynard, Daniel Webb, Chloe Goodman, Tyler West, Will Thomson and Dakota Blue Richards
From today, in addition to the main restaurant and bar, guests can also experience a sushi bar where the dishes are prepared in front of their eyes.
