Review on Dock Kitchen

Dock Kitchen is set in a converted Victorian wharf building overlooking the Grand Union Canal just off Ladbroke Grove, part of an urban regeneration project by Derwent London. The stunning building has retained the original brick arches and beamed ceilings, featuring a lively open kitchen with furniture and lighting from acclaimed British Designer Tom Dixon, whose shop occupies the space beneath the restaurant. During summer months diners can take advantage of al fresco dining with views across the Canal to West London.

Chef/patron is Stevie Parle, cookery author and writer for The Telegraph who earned his culinary stripes at restaurants such as The River Café, Moro and Petersham Nurseries, as well as from his travels around the globe. Food is at the heart of things and the kitchen runs in tandem with the seasons and showcases impeccable ingredients.

A starter of chicken livers, seven spice, pomegranate molasses proceeds a main course of Zarzuela, a Spanish fish stew of cod, bream and mussels, mixed greens or Mexican pork, chillies, chipotle slaw and tacos. Desserts offer an enticing mix of flavours with pistachio and nutmeg cake paired with saffron yoghurt or chocolate, cultured cream, burnt, salty hokey pokey. As well as the a la carte menu Parle offers a set evening menu that could reflect a place, an ingredient or maybe an idea that gave him a particular focus.

The wine selection is designed to enhance the flavours across the menu with organic, biodynamic and natural wines from some of the finest wine growers around the world.
