Sapling is an intimate and relaxed spot in Dalston. Drinking a glass of natural wine and grazing on a selection of cured meats at the central counter isn’t going to be as fun here as it is at somewhere like P. Franco, but it’s still a nice spot for an early in the game date. And if counter dining isn’t your thing, grab one of their cosy booths and make your way through their menu of salads, sharing plates, and cheese.
