Housed within boutique-style hotel The Dixon at the former Tower Bridge Magistrates Court, Provisioners is a casual restaurant with a strong focus on design—offering an all-day menu that comprises fresh, uncomplicated and comforting food alongside in-house roasted coffee and a considered cocktail list.
Capturing all of the culture, creativity and variety that makes up London SE1, The Dixon—an Autograph Collection hotel—turns up 193 individually-styled rooms and suites that honour the heritage of its Grade II* listed building. Likewise, Provisioners takes reference from the surrounding neighbourhood and is inspired by modern design movements as well as European café culture, all served up with a nod to the Bauhaus, mid-century modern, and British industrial designers such as Sir Kenneth Grange.
East London-based workshop Altrock designed and installed 35 hand-cast table tops pigmented in an unlimited selection of colour, cast in a diverse range of shapes and sizes and made with 87% recycled materials; reimagining traditional terrazzo into a beautiful, hard-wearing and graphical surface material.
Provisioners head chef Lerrico Messina has devised a menu consisting of light starters and wholesome mains featuring European influences, with winning plates such as Culurgiones (Sardinian dumplings) with pecorino and winter truffle, and Shanghai master-stock duck pie (roasted duck breast and duck liver parfait) bound to wow travellers whilst getting the locals returning time and time again.
The ‘Courtroom Bar’ located in the original Magistrates’ Courtroom offers a place to enjoy a pre- or post-dinner cocktail, this energetic hotel offering guests and Londoners a place to relax, unwind or refuel as their whim takes them.
