There are a few cafes and restaurants dotted up and down the Union Canal, but none of them look quite as awesome as Dock Kitchen up in Kensal. It’s a sleek restaurant that’s attached to the studio of designer Tom Dixon (the guy who makes the metal pendant lights you keep seeing everywhere), with an impressive view that overlooks the canal. We’re not saying it’s just like being in Amsterdam, but there is a canal involved. It’s a lovely place to sit with a drink and something to eat on a summer day, especially when the light hits the water just right. Even if you can’t get away, the food does it for you, with dishes that bounce between Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. The biryani and a glass of wine will sort you out.
