Sager + Wilde
There was once a time when wine bars were the preserve of unimaginative tax accountants or your parents. They’re actually pretty cool these days, and Sager + Wilde is one of the best. The restaurant, a few minutes from Bethnal Green station, is housed in an old railway arch, and as well as a cosy ambience courtesy of flickering candles, there’s also a sneaky mezzanine upstairs and a terrace for the warmer months. The food’s good, with Mediterranean dishes that go great with wine—there are usually a few pastas which are a highlight. Head here for a relaxed session with friends, or for a date where intimacy is a good thing.
