Hg2 : The Hedonist

Whitechapel Gallery Dining Room

Founded in 1901 to bring art to the East End, the Grade II-listed Whitechapel Gallery reopened in spring 2009 following a two-year, £13.5 million facelift that doubled its size and brought with it a handsome, intimate restaurant in its old oak-floored library. In 2011 head chef Emma Duggan took over in the kitchen alongside executive chef Angela Hartnett, creating a compact daily changing menu featuring seasonal British ingredients, artfully transformed into culinary masterpieces. Choose from a series of delicious small plates such as confit sea trout with pink fir potatoes and watercress mayo, before moving onto more substantial dishes like slow roast pork belly with spiced greens, chorizo and cockle and cider cream. For something a little bit special, book a table at one of the monthly “Evening with Angela Hartnett” events. An exclusive evening featuring a selection of dishes designed, introduced and cooked by Angela Hartnett’s own fair hand, this is a must for any self-professed foodie.
