ON 15 FEBRUARY 2017, CHRIS LEACH WILL BECOME HEAD CHEF AND LAUNCH A NEW MENU
Trend-setting wine evangelists Michael and Charlotte Sager-Wilde first brought their vinous gospel to Bethnal Green with their eponymous wine bar, followed shortly afterwards by spin-off restaurant (and instant hit) Mission. Now renamed and with a new head chef, this Paradise Row gem has eschewed its Californian vine obsession for wines from across the globe, as well as calling in former Chiltern Firehouse head chef Sebastien Myers. The rumble of trains over this converted railway arch does nothing to detract from the serenity of the interiors or the towering strength of the wine list. The food is equally varied, mixing Anglo-French influences with ideas from further afield – as in cured mackerel with rice broth and pork fat, succulent langoustines paired with shiso and almonds or the wonderfully saline salt-baked beets with seaweed butter. Be sure to try the cocktails, too.
Once upon a time, the people who opened the original Sager + Wilde wine bar had a vision of creating a restaurant specializing in California wines. When I heard about Mission E2 opening, I was really excited. It’s hard to find new and interesting California wines in London, as a lot of the ones that you can find are imported from the bigger wineries, so you don’t get to experience the smaller, better wineries. It’s probably why we end up in Napa every time we’re in California.

The Woodford Reserve Lounge at Sager + Wilde (at Paradise Row restaurant/bar/terrace not the Hackney Road wine bar) offers a subdued earth tone retreat from the world with a lofty perch above the Bethnal Green bustle.I dropped by recently for an elbow bend at the new lounge with Head Bartender Marcis Dzelzainis – recently nominated for the International Bartender of the Year award at the Tales Of The Cocktail Awards in New Orleans – and Woodford Reserve Brand Ambassador Tom Vernon.
