The natural opulence of A.O.K Kitchen & Bakery, Marylebone

Founded by Kelly Landesberg, A.O.K offers seasonal dishes with a health-conscious twist. Free from refined sugar and with little dairy and gluten, the menu focuses on high-quality ingredients that nourish your body. In the morning, try the Kitchen’s nutritious take on a full English or blueberry pancakes with organic maple syrup and fresh berries. Then later in the day opt for light dishes, such as sea bass ceviche and homemade gluten-free gnocchi, all accompanied by fresh juice-infused cocktails.

Downstairs, the Mediterranean-style bakery offers fresh patisserie, viennoiserie and specialty breads created by head baker of The Arts Club, Sebastien Chiono. Alongside the signature bakes, the bakery offers plenty of gluten- and dairy-free varieties – all free of refined sugar – and also caters for bespoke creations.

Landesberg’s team is built around fantastic chefs, including the executive head chef of The Arts Club and Kostas Rampias, former head chef of MoMo, whose Greek background and extensive experience infuse an authentic Mediterranean take on smorgasbord of dishes offered at the all-day dining space.

The interior design combines opulence with nature; lined with vines and flowers, the space features hand painted silk wallpaper and gemstone marble floors, while ‘the snug’ – which is also available for private hire – allows for a more relaxed and intimate dining experience.

A.O.K Kitchen & Bakery is located on 52-55 Dorset Street, Marylebone W1U 7NQ.
