The team behind P Franco in Clapton is opening a new Japanese izakaya restaurant in Hackney.

Peg will launch on the former Legs restaurant site on Morning Lane, serving a yakitori inspired menu of 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 and will be the P Franco team’s third opening.
