The Ivy

The Ivy, Beverly Hills was absolutely beautiful. Wherever you look you cannot miss the huge bouquets full of roses on every table and shelf. The restaurant is like a country cottage, with pots, pans, knicks and knacks in every spare crevice. 

The plates had a distinct pineapple pattern which was obviously very instagramable. I chose crab cakes to start which were beautiful. And of course for dessert I had to try the red velvet cake. My mom had been before and told me I would love it. Feeling quite full I shared a piece with her and to this day that slice of cake tops my all time favourite pieces of cake I have ever had.
