Shay & Ivy

OPENED1000 DAYS AGO

Shay & Ivy, a new progressive-American restaurant run by two friends who met 10 years ago while working in corporate hospitality, has just opened in Flatiron. 

The new spot is the second restaurant from Evan Rosenberg and Daniel Rieger, who also own Atwood Kitchen & Bar Room. Come to this part of town and you’ll find no shortage of new places to eat and drink in lower Manhattan – the most recent being the highly regarded Italienne – and these guys are offering something that looks like it will fit right in.

The menu at Shay & Ivy is headed up by executive chef, Bradley Warner (who is also behind the menu at Atwood) and veers away from the comfort food approach at Atwood and, instead, focuses on fresh, organic produce with a heavy seafood presence. Warner’s culinary background spans Italian, Mexican, French, Creole and Pan-Asian – all of which adds to the inspiration throughout the menu where you might find dishes like a chili salmon crudo with a tahini-lime emulsion.

You’ll also find a black kale salad, yellowfin tuna tartare and a Shay & Ivy burger in both meat and non-meat versions. There are also cocktails available that continue the organic and high-quality ingredient driven approach with fresh ingredients and light drinks as well as a range of  fresh-pressed juices and a premiere coffee program – we suspect they’re very much aiming at a female crowd here.

The name, Shay & Ivy, references the children’s book by Sheena McFeely and the takeaway from the book is “simply be yourself.” In case guests don’t quite get the message, there’s a large neon sign hanging over the entrance to the dining room that states, “Just be yourself, everyone else is taken.”

Shay & Ivy is decorated with walls of fake ivy, rustic wood paneling and floral accents throughout.  The 2,400 square-foot restaurant has 90 seats inside (including bar seating,) a 36-seat 450 square-foot outdoor patio, and a private event space.
