Monocle EIC Tyler Brûlé was kind enough to show us around the not-yet-open Monocle Café in Marylebone — the London counterpart to Monocle’s Tokyo café and shop in the Hankyu Men’s department store in Chiyoda-ku. Espresso, homemade muesli and symphonic salads will make a great introduction to desserts by Japanese chef Masayuki Hara — we’re particularly looking forward to the macarons, green-tea roll-cake and strawberry gateau from Hara’s own shop, Lanka. “We wanted to create a relaxed space for a morning coffee meeting, a lengthy weekend lunch with the papers, and a glass of prosecco after work too,” Tyler says. Stay tuned to this channel for recipes and more from the Monocle team — they cut the ribbon this coming Monday.
