Square Meal Review of 28°-50° ?

Michelin-starred chef Agnar Sverrisson and sommelier Xavier Rousset (of Texture fame) have created a neat little side-line in the shape of 28º-50º – a casual ‘wine workshop and kitchen concept’ with several locations across town. In an easy-going basement setting of exposed brick and natural wood, anticipate a terrific selection of artisan wines, Champagne and port with over 30 available by the glass and carafe. Winning sips might include anything from Zagreus St Dimitar Mavrud (a bold, balanced Bulgarian red) to a sensational vin santo from Tuscan big boys Fattoria Dei Barbi. Otherwise, sip a taster glass of high-rolling Echezéaux Grand Cru, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. Edible accompaniments range from cheeses and charcuterie to wild mushroom persillade, onglet with triple-cooked chips or prawn and samphire risotto. Regular events and tutored tastings also engage City oenophiles.

Wine List Of The Year Finalist

Louis Roederer Wine List of the Year 2014Previous finalist Xavier Rousset MS’ list impressed our panel. It’s a ‘two lists in one’ package, with the one-page brasserie list supplemented by some high-quality fine wines. The by-the-glass selection is astonishing, with every still wine (all 50 of ’em) available in 75ml, 125ml, or 250ml carafes. Add in the chance to drink Romanée-Conti Échézeaux 1999 by the glass thanks to the recently added Coravin system, and it’s a truly exciting offering.

    vialaporte :: 28-50 // Holborn // London

    Hidden between two rather depressing buildings off Fetter Lane is an underground restaurant called 28-50. Despite its subterraneous location, you’ll immediately feel warmed-up by the woody atmosphere, where there is nothing better than plonking yourself on one of their bar stools and enjoying a nice glass of wine. With a name based on the two latitudes where most of the world’s vineyards can be found, they have obviously paid special attention to their wine list, in terms of both the by-the-glass and bottles on offer...

Agnar Sverrisson

Icelandic chef Agnar Sverrisson founded Scandinavian-inspired, Michelin-starred Texture with business partner Xavier Rousset in London in 2001. The pair, who met while head chef and sommelier respectively at Le Manoir Aux Quat’ Saisons, have since branched out into wine bars with their innovative 28o-50o Wine Workshop & Kitchen group, which now has three branches in the capital. Sverrisson’s mentor Raymond Blanc likes everything about him – except that “he swears like a trooper”.
