The Dock Kitchen in London

The Dock Kitchen in London has the ever-evolving, work-in-progress, experimental feel of the temporary pop-up joints around town, but this restaurant stays put — physically, at least. Housed, for the indefinite future, in the old Virgin recording studios complex, the Dock Kitchen is an open space with a funky interior and striking glass walls. To the chic interior add a small daily changing lunch menu that gives way to weekly themed dinners inspired by the season.

The work of Stevie Parle — recently named Observer Food Monthly’s Young Chef of the Year — the menu reads like an atlas, with a mélange of global influences from Greece to Iran, Mexico to Morocco.

Take for instance, November, where Italian cooking with white truffles was the theme of choice one week and, Indian and Sri Lankan inspired dinners the next. On now is Christmas Cooking, where the kitchen promises to explore dishes beyond that which typically graces British tables. Follow up your meal with a stroll through The Dock Christmas Market — a food and design mash-up with the restaurant’s next door neighbor, the Tom Dixon design studio. Now that’s a (not so moveable) feast.
