Dorian Notting Hill

By Ben Whitfield
Dorian Notting Hill

It has been a busy few months for Whitfield Wines, but not, as you may noticed, in the wine letter department, for which I apologise!

I have a good excuse though, as there has been a birth in the family.  Not a human child, but one of the restaurant variety. Dorian (Notting Hill) was born in mid-September and I am happy to report is healthy and happy. Very noisy at night, and quite exhausting in general, everyone that has encountered Dorian seems to be delighted. 

For my loyal Whitfield Wines followers it is hopefully good news, as the list at Dorian is predominantly French and Italian, and there has been a lot of wine tasted over recent weeks. 

Dorian is a seasonal British bistro with an emphasis on grill, and a focus on sourcing the very best produce from around Britain, whilst keeping pricing accessible. Young Chef Max Coen (ex-Ikoyu and Kitchen Table) leads at the stoves.  Drinks are a big deal with the brilliant wine list put together with my help, and cocktails curated by former Core bar manager, Ale Villa. 

Do drop me a line if you would like to book a table!

In other news, Whitfield Wines has a tasting with plenty of new wines on 23 November in West London.  Please drop me a message if you would like to come.
