Head Chef at Avenue, Arnold Ivey began his cooking career in 2002, with an apprenticeship at Chelsea’s Bluebird. Two years later, Arnold moved on to Orrery, to work under both Chris Galvin and André Garrett. In late 2004 the chef moved on to become Sous Chef at Paternoster Chop House, where he advanced his skills and worked with the best of British seasonal produce for nine years. After three years with Newman Street Tavern in Fitzrovia, Arnold returned to Paternoster Chop House to become Senior Sous Chef in 2016.
