Providores – Marylebone

providores1

So I have this friend, Alexa, she’s got fancy taste, especially when it comes to restaurants. If you ask her her favourite restaurant, no doubt she’ll reply Arbutus or Wild Honey. Nonetheless her likes are varied and she knows a good restaurant when she sees one, whether it’s Rocca or the Stockpot she’s no snob, an omelette is just as good as steak tartare. We met a while back whilst working for the same crazy boss who had taken to urinating in a jar and cleaning out his ears with the end of a biro, as you can imagine we bonded over a shared disgust in our day to day reality. That and our love of restaurants and cafes. Now Marylebone has several places worthy of note including one of Alexa’s favourite’s, ‘Providores’ which is now one of mine. Known for its exceptional restaurant upstairs, Providores also has a more relaxed tapas room downstairs. It’s owned by New Zealanders so the breakfasts are bloody great. The menu has things like brown rice, apple, maple syrup and miso porridge with tamarillo compote or French toast stuffed with banana and pecans with grilled smoked streaky bacon and vanilla verjus syrup, seriously how good does that sound? The queue waiting for it to open virtually every day is a testament to how great Providores is.
