Founded by friends Alex and Arthur and chef Tasos, the restaurant currently operates a ‘cafe and cocktail’ site in Balham serving dishes inspired by Tasos’ Cretan upbringing.
The restaurant in Angel’s Camden Passage will serve an extended all-day menu, including a new selection of evening dishes such as grilled octopus on fava bean puree with pink peppercorn vierge and charcoal oil; cracked pork belly with date glaze and labneh; and chargrilled aubergine with mint.
The group’s signature snacks will be available, including homemade crisps with oregano and lemon zest and homemade lasagna bread.
Having won the restaurant a Time Out Love London award this year, the brand’s popular brunch dishes, including sweet potato, courgette and feta fritters with mashed avocado, crispy kale and turmeric yoghurt will also be on the menu at the new restaurant.
The cocktail menu will comprise a list of Mediterranean-inspired drinks such as a whiskey, ouzo, red apple and egg white ‘Balkan Whip’; and the ‘Smoke and Honey’ comprising mescal, lime and Greek honey water.
Reflective of its move away from the casual cafe feel of its original site, Brother Marcus at Angel will have a semi-private 12-cover dining room as well as wooden ‘banquet seating’ and falling foliage around the restaurant.
Angel is proving a popular spot for new openings, with British-inspired Dalston favourite Jones and Sons acquiring a site in the area, and ramen brand Kanada Ya choosing a site near the station to open its Islington outpost.
