Sager and Wilde
Nestled under an old railway arch in East London is Sager + Wilde, a cool and eclectic restaurant and wine bar that begs for languid hours spent under the sun. Their courtyard terrace is the ideal place to park yourself with friends and sip your way through the cocktail list (the coco pine spritz is a must!) and gorge on delicious seasonal offerings such as heritage tomatoes with picked button onion and chickpeas, pea & parmesan arancini and white asparagus with wild garlic, poached egg and spenwood.
