Brother Marcus | A Family of Brunch & Eastern Mediterranean Restaurants
This is a story about Alex, Arthur and Tasos, three school friends who pooled together their skills to open Brother Marcus.
Long story short… it’s brilliant.
What began as a modest eatery in Balham was soon hailed as one of London’s best brunch spots, and has since expanded to a four-strong restaurant empire, now comprising Brother Marcus Spitalfields, Angel, Borough Yards and South Kensington.
You’ll still come to Brother Marcus for the brunch, featuring – as it does – sweet potato & courgette fritters with turmeric yoghurt and a poached egg; smoky shakshuka with Merguez sausage and a generously portioned full vegan breakfast… but you should also stop by for the Eastern Mediterranean dishes that come onto the menu later in the day. Dishes like pan-fried cheese saganaki with black fig honey; BBQ’d pork skewers with hazelnut dukkha; and platters of fluffy pitta with house-made taramasalata, baba ghanoush and fennel tzatziki.
And then there’s the drinks – not only does Brother Marcus specialise in Greek wines, but there’s a whole slew of signature cocktails to pick from too, like the Aleppo Margarita (Quiquiriqui mezcal, lime juice, agave syrup & aged ouzo).
It’s ouzo good.
