Lively Sabor is a vibrant south American restaurant and bar in buzzy Islington with a sleek take on Nuevo Latino cuisine. Décor is elegantly modern, with white walls accented by Latino artefacts. A full-flavoured menu blends Argentinian, Peruvian and Columbian cooking, while the glass bar serves classic indigenous cocktails, including mojitos, caipirinhas, and margaritas, and native wines.
