The team behind Clapton’s P Franco has announced it will open a new Japanese drinking food restaurant in Hackney.
Named Peg, the new restaurant will officially launch on 20 February, serving a menu of small dishes such as chicken thighs, hearts and wings along with fish dishes such as smoked mackerel.
Peg will be led by head chef Byron Fini and executive chef William Gleave who aim to put food producers at the centre of attention. The restaurant will become the P Franco team’s third opening, taking over from the Legs restaurant in its location on Morning Lane. The restaurant will also feature an all-seater bar with “a focus on keeping prices down, small team, simple food, and a record player”.
