This place oozes effortless class. Sited in an imaginatively converted Victorian girls' school, the restaurant is simply stunning.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Dressing code is very relaxed. Casual smart was how I did it. When I dined there, there were people with jeans & polo all the way to suit and night dresses. So I guess it's more on your occasion rather than the restaurant.
