Have you been to any restaurant that welcomes pet with wide open hands? I'm not talking about a pet cafe like the few that you can find in Kemang area. The name is Ivy Restaurant, another new concept by Klabo Group, which also opened Monty's in Senopati earlier this year. And you can expect nothing but the best to be served here...
Ivy Restaurant is the rebirth of was previously known as Ivy Bistro & Catering, that's located in Dharmawangsa area. The new Ivy does not focus so much on the catering side as much as it used to, instead, it focuses on its dining concept at its new location, just a few blocks away from the old location.

Ivy offers both Western and Asian menus, and some are even vegetarian friendly. And just recently, they've released weekend Breakfast menu, which is available on Saturday & Sunday starting 8 AM. Based on my experience here, the dishes are served in large portion, for average Asians, it would be wise to share, but of course, the choice is yours. Ivy is not a fine dining restaurant, but the owners have very high standards for the water that they drink, so they only serve Acqua Panna or San Pellegrino.

|Mochaccino IDR 40,000|
Spiced Sweet Corn Soup - roasted organic Hokkaido corn, crushed avocado toast (IDR 75,000)Do not miss the smashed avo on perfectly grilled sourdough toast, because for me, that's actually the highlight of this dish.
|Pesto & Mushroom Farfalle - shimeji mushroom, parsley pesto, beef bacon IDR 95,000|
Another comfort food done right, whether you love creamy pasta or pesto-based pasta, both will definitely agree with this one.
|Scrambled Spicy Tofu Noodles (vegetarian) - fried egg noodles, spicy scrambled tofu, bean sprouts, chili, lime IDR 95,000|
Oh, yes, this noodles pack some serious heat in it, so you might want to have a glass of water ready next to you.
|Mocca Parfait IDR 75,000 (flambée with Brandy +IDR 60,000)|
If you're looking for a dessert with some special effects, this should be your choice.

If you're looking for a cosy and classy place for a meal, Ivy is a very welcoming place, with ample of parking space and it also welcomes your pet friends here, something that's still quite rare even in Jakarta. But make sure your pet is house broken and can behave well in public please =).
