Whitechapel Gallery information
A firm favourite of art students and the avant-garde cognoscenti, this gallery provides a less cliquey forum for modern art than the White Cube in Hoxton. The gallery is currently under expansion, but should be offering its full exhibition programme by the time you read this. There is also a small but perfectly formed dining room with high-profile chef Maria Elia at the helm. The menu is short but comprehensive with things like roast rabbit, grilled sea bream and inventive vegetarian dishes.
