Housed on a site that triggers nostalgia in many Notting Hill residents (it used to be the site of Coins Coffee Store), DORIAN will be an elegant space.

Open daily  DORIAN will transition from a lunchtime dining room to a subversive, clandestine dinner destination – when the volume gets turned up and drinks start to flow.

Behind DORIAN are Chris D’Sylva of Notting Hill Fish + Meat Shop and Supermarket of Dreams – the local grocer everybody wishes they had on their doorstep; head chef Max Coen, formerly of two-Michelin starred Kitchen Table and Ikoyi and three-starred Stockholm restaurant Frantzén.

Highlighting the very best British seasonal produce, chef Max Coen’s menu features approachably-priced, honestly-prepared dishes suited to everyday eating – including Porthilly oysters at £2.50; potato rosti with crab or girolles and Cornish Yarg; mussels with cucumber and shiso; grilled beetroots and autumn squash; wild sea bass with sauce vierge; and grill plates including John Dory, côte de boeuf, sirloin or pork chop. 

Puddings such as peach custard tart or strawberries and creme fraiche will wholesomely round things off. Chris and Max’s enviable network of suppliers will allow for an exciting and varied selection of specials.

The cocktail menu, which features drinks made using foraged and seasonal ingredients, will include Ale’s modern classic, the Fig Leaf Negroni, for which he forages and cleans the leaves and infuses them with gin. 

Ale will be working with friends Dan Keeling and Mark Andrew of Noble Rot to curate a wine list for traditional and progressive wine lovers alike.
