Peg | All-Counter Drinking & Dining in Hackney
Legs, the popular Hackney wine bar & restaurant has gone.
And in its place, you will soon find Peg.
It’s really the only logical next step.
Peg comes to us from the team behind P Franco, which is also a celebrated Hackney wine bar & restaurant, and who have already opened another joint (Bright) to much fanfare and general hoo-hah. This will be their third venue, and it’s going to be an all-counter affair serving skewered dishes influenced by the Japanese izakaya bar snacks.
The focus here will be on keeping things simple & cheap, with “a small team and a record player” doing most of the work. Manning the pans will be head chef Byron Fini, whose CV includes stints at Brawn and Bright, as well as Burnt Ends in Singapore. It’s unclear if this will be his first restaurant not beginning with a ‘b’…
…but we have every faith he’ll be just fine.
NOTE: Peg is due to open later this year, and we’ll be back with the full scoop when it does. In the meantime, you can check out their (currently a little bare) Instagram page right HERE.
