Aleion is a cosy independent restaurant opened on Muswell Hill Broadway in 2017. It is run by a husband and wife (mostly husband) and promotes
a healthier, quality-focused dining out.
In the morning it serves fresh teas, coffees and pastries along with a selection of wholesome home cooked hot breakfasts.
For lunch it has a nice mix of brunch items, burgers, salads and sandwiches along with a selection of home baked cakes and treats on the counter. Then for dinner it has a more styled menu that has elements of finer dining but sticking to Ian’s philosophy of less is more.
Aleion aims to source their produce locally where possible and always from the finest quality suppliers. Among its favourites are the local Hampstead Butcher & Providor and Celtic Bakers that is based in Alexandra Palace.
’Aleion’ is a fusion of two names: Alex and Ian. Only that Ian is spelt the Irish way to pay tribute to the great Irish lady his mother is.
Ian started a career in restaurant business 15 years ago and dreamt of opening his own place ever since. During the span of his working life he worked as a chef in Michelin star restaurants, run operations management for an up and coming chain and even did a few restaurant fit-outs participating in the whole process from the initial layout and interior conception to building itself.
