A modern Eastern Mediterranean restaurant serving sharing plates and pioneering brunch dishes, made with quality, seasonal produce sourced from the UK and Eastern Med. Our doors open first thing for signature breakfast plates like the sweet potato fritters and the smoky shakshuka. To go, there are freshly-squeezed juices, smoothies, coffee, and Easter Med-inspired pastries. As the day progressed, a sharing menu reflects our travels through the sun-soaked fields of Crete and the cities of the Eastern Med, with dishes including pan-fried halloumi with orange & thyme infused honey, and grilled lamb koftas with celeriac puree and burnt pine nut butter. As the evening draws in, the lights are lowered and diners are encouraged to linger over slow-cooked shared dishes and glasses of natural wine at candlelit tables.
To drink, there’s a concise but considered wine list of bottles from around the world with a focus on minimum intervention producers, whilst classic cocktails are riffed with unusual spirits and flavours such as resinous Greek Mastiha and anise-heavy raki- commonly found on tables around the Eastern Med. At weekend, brunch lovers can take their pick from ouzo-spiked Bloody Marys and carefully cold-brewed coffees.
Indoors, Brother Marcus is lined with banquette seating as well as larger tables for groups and features flagstone flooring and natural wicker lampshades. Outside, there’s a pergola-covered courtyard with hanging plants, festoon lighting, and heaters for chilly days. An outdoor counter serves fresh coffees and pastries to go throughout the day, whilst in the evening transforms into a sleek bar serving cocktails to the outdoor seating under the pergola.
Did you know Brother Marcus hosts Greek wine-tasting evenings each month too? In collaboration with Greek suppliers, Maltby & Greek, guests will try six different wines throughout the evening accompanied by a handpicked menu of Eastern Mediterranean-inspired small plates. The tasting will include sparkling wine, two whites, one rosé, and two reds from a variety of regions including Santorini, Macedonia in Northern Greece, and Attiki in Central Greece.
