The Providores and Tapa Room
Spread across two floors, and divided into two restaurants, The Providores and Tapa Room is the brainchild of the excellent Peter Gordon. It comprises a more formal Providores restaurant upstairs and a more casual all-day dining Tapa Room on the ground floor. Bringing a taste of New Zealand to London, the atmosphere here is buzzing. You can expect to see Regent’s Business School students between classes, mothers with oversized sunglasses, and the occasional fashionable blogger sipping on a flat white – a coffee that the Providores and Tapa Room do so well. We adore the combination with whipped yoghurt and hot chilli butter on sourdough toast. Look out for long queues on the weekends; while the Providores does take bookings (also for their scrumptious weekend brunch), the Tapa Room does not.
