Some Americans might not feel like there is much to give thanks for right now but Matilda Egere-Cooper thinks that’s all the more reason for classic comfort food.

The Republicans might have bagged the election, but Sager + Wilde are determined to lift the mood and console London’s resident Democrats by offering only Blue State wines with a classy Thanksgiving spread at their Bethnal Green branch. Raise a glass of rare booze from California, Vermont or Oregon before tucking into a reasonably priced £35 menu including crab and pumpkin soup, turkey with all the trimmings, and pumpkin pie with spiced ice cream. Sager + Wilde Paradise Row. Bethnal Green. Thu Nov 24. £35 for three courses
