Loosely based on a concept of "Amalfi coast inspired", the decor of The Ivy in Los Angeles is just beautiful and should make you want to shop at the owner's Indigo Seas boutique for furniture. Before you've even tried the food, you're marvelling at the multi-coloured fresh flowers everywhere. Then your lunch or dinner will be delicious: American, Italian and Mexican classics served on lovely hand-painted plates and washed down with excellent, fresh cocktails and mocktails. An LA institution since the '90s and deservedly so.
