BROADGATE | EC2M
Wolf is first and foremost an all-day seasonal Italian restaurant in Stoke Newington, but they've recently opened a weekday spot for city types, in a stylish container space in Broadgate's Finsbury Avenue Square. It's effectively a street food operation, though there is some seating inside their unit.
Visit for their fresh pasta, made to order. Their cacio e pepe (£7.50) is next level comfort food - fresh tonnarelli pasta with black pepper, pecorino, parmesan and a cultured butter emulsion, plus two chunks of delicious focaccia. It's glorious, and very filling. If you happen to find some extra change in your pocket, splurge on the wild boar pasta for £8.50, made with pappardelle.
Note: limited indoor seating, but there's plenty of outdoor seating.
