North Bakery Stays Open Late for Dinner

Experience a smaller, simpler dinner menu and well-curated beverage list Thursday through Sunday nights.

North bakery is keeping the lights on late. What was once just a stop for your morning coffee and pastry, a light lunch and sweet and savory snacks is now serving a simple dinner menu with beer, wine and cocktails. The restaurant will continue with its daily daytime hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., but on Thursday through Sunday nights, dinner is served from 5 to 11 p.m.

Expect similar plates to nearby north restaurant, also owned by James Mark, but a much smaller menu with straightforward ingredients. “We want to do hyper seasonal, constantly rotating food in the same way we do it at the restaurant, just a little simpler so we can keep the prices down,” says Mark. “Buying directly from farmers is a real thing for us – 90 percent of what’s on the menu is directly bought either at the market or through relationships that we have established through the restaurant.”

The outpost concentrates on making items in-house, including breads like pull-apart pretzel bread, hand-torn pasta served with asparagus, ricotta and pea greens and brown butter and pecan and chocolate chip/salted caramel ice creams. The wine, beer and cocktail list is also thoughtfully curated with unusual bottles. North Bakery serves five wines by the glass, one small format beer, one small format cider, four large format beers and four cocktails. Cheers to north bakery for giving us another option for worshipping untraditional cuisine. 70 Battey St., Providence, 401-421-4062,
