Our mission is to bring the family together through food and memories.

Brother Marcus was created by three best friends, Arthur, Alex and Tas. We bring the flavours and recipes of the Eastern Mediterranean to London. Having travelled the region extensively and experienced the food, drink and culture it has to offer first hand, what you get at Brother Marcus is our take on the Eastern Mediterranean way.

Sounds good but, who’s this Marcus guy?
We’re glad you asked…

We named ourselves after Alex’s legendary little brother Marcus, who makes friends with just about anyone. We’re all here for a good time and want you to feel part of the family as soon as you walk through the door.

Our Story

2016
Brother Marcus is born in April 2016. Alex, Arthur and Tas got the keys for an old greasy spoon on the Sunday and were serving their first brunches on the Thursday. What was supposed to be a pop-up gained some traction and by filling the space with brunch guests during the day and events at night Brother Marcus made a name for itself.
2017
2017 saw Brother Marcus grow; their loyal followers multiplied, supper clubs gained momentum and the weekend brunch queues got even longer. Brother Marcus’ own Cretan inspired supper clubs lit the spark of the idea of a second restaurant.
2018
Balham was crowned ‘Best Brunch in London’ by Time Out which came just before the lease for Angel was signed and the keys were in hand. This time the Brother Marcus boys, and their now experienced team, had six days instead of the previous four to turn the site around. Brother Marcus Angel opened in June 2018 with a more grownup and refined menu, but of course the brunch classics they had become known for made the journey north. Brother Marcus had grown up a bit, the menu was more refined and of course the brunches maintained their cult following.
2019
With two restaurants running and a growing fanbase across North and South London, Brother Marcus looked East. After a trip to Crete to meet suppliers and visit the village where Tas grew up, the lease for Spitalfiled was signed. With a longer timeframe to refit the site, and a design team, Brother Marcus Spitalfields opened its doors to East London in November 2019.
2020
In January a trip to Istanbul gave some focus for the year ahead, however, Covid forced Brother Marcus to close. Over 12 months the restaurants opened and closed nine times in total with the team taking it in their stride. 2020 has pushed Brother Marcus to the edge but its resilience has only proven that Brother Marcus is here for the long-haul.
