Lunch like a celebrity at The Ivy

Lunch like a celebrity at The Ivy  |  Los Angeles, California  |  Yesterday I came to have lunch at The Ivy, the quintessential lunch spot in LA. One sunny LA afternoon, New York actress, Lynn von Kersting, stepped into LA Desserts on her way to the Lee Strasberg Theatre where she was starring in Tennessee Williams’ Suddenly Last Summer. Behind the counter, owner and self-taught baker, Richard Irving stopped in his tracks. Their eyes met and the rest is history. The dynamic duo opened The Ivy in 1983.
Other than the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel, one of my favorite lunch getaways a few blocks of Wilshire Boulevard and Rodeo Dr. Located on North Robertson Boulevard, The Ivy has been feature and landmark on multiple movies, and social event. The see and be seen spot for lunch.

Usually very difficult to get a reservation, but the concierge at the AVALON Beverly Hills, where I am staying, he managed to sneak me in with no problem. So by 2PM I was seating among celebrities, jetsetters and other tourists of course, having a lovely lunch outdoors on the terrace. Just fabulous. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
