This gorgeous new restaurant and bakery is A.O.K. (No, literally, that’s what it’s called.)
It feels like I’ve been writing a lot about Instagrammable spots in Marylebone recently. (See Feya, for example.) Who knew it was the place to be?
This particular eatery is basically brand spanking new, and its offering is two fold: you’ll enter into a gorgeous restaurant, but there’s also a lovely bakery hidden away downstairs.
The restaurant prides itself on using absolutely no refined sugar, and they try to limit their use of dairy and gluten, too. Dishes include the likes of homemade gluten free gnocchi, BBQ lamb chops, and honey roasted salmon with accompaniments I’ve never heard of before.
There’s also a cracking breakfast menu, featuring eggs in all its forms. There are omelettes, dippy eggs, poached eggs on toast… they’ve even got egg tacos! For brunch, there’s more of the same – but you can also opt for salads, a falafel burger or a juicy sirloin steak.
The bakery downstairs is the perfect place to pop in for a pastry or a grab ‘n’ go lunch. Much like upstairs, they’ll make sure everyone is catered for – be it gluten free, dairy free, or whatever your needs/preferences.
