Choose from starters such as grilled sardines, mains including veal cooked in marsala sauce, and finish with Italian ice cream. 747-753 Sidcup Road, SE9 (020 8850 3332) CHRIS BEANLAND Read1,OOOsofpubandrestaurant reviewsandbookonlineat LOTUS FLOATING RESTAURANT IN THE most secluded part of Millwall Dock (just over from Crossharbour) you can step into this oasis of Cantonese food -- on a boat. The lights reflect off the water at night, making it a lovely place for dinner. Enjoy the view while munching through their 22 set menu, which consists of hors doeuvres, crispy duck, a main course and tea. 38 Limeharbour, E14 (020 7515 6445) THE TATE MODERN UNVEILS LATEST WACKY MASTERPIECE ART lovers will be left in the dark when they visit Tate Moderns latest exhibition -- because it is simply a black void. This years commission for the Turbine Hall allows visitors to walk into a steel container where they will be unable to see anything but darkness. Polish artist Miroslaw Balka, 51, created the work, called How It Is. From the outside it resembles a 13m- high and 30m-long lorry container on two metre-high stilts in the middle of the Bankside gallery. Staff are expecting to fit about 60 visitors at a time into the darkness, where they will struggle even to see the people next to them. Organisers say safety will be paramount following previous installations -- including a crack in the floor -- which have left visitors injured. The Unilever Series: Miroslaw Balka -- How It Is opens to the public from tomorrow until 5 April. Dark art: the steel container and, inset, artist Miroslaw BalkaBlack hole?
