Like its sibling on Fetter Lane, 28°-50° is a haven for oenophiles who can sample over 30 wines by the glass or carafe as well as choosing from a bespoke ‘collector’s list’ gleaned from private
cellars at greatly reduced mark-ups. As you’d expect from Xavier Rousset and Agnar Sverrisson (the duo behind Michelin-starred Texture), attention has been paid to details and service is excellent.
To eat, try exemplary foie gras terrine or a punchy gazpacho served over an olive and cucumber salad, before tackling a meltingly tender onglet or a rich Icelandic fish stew with chunks of cod and
potato in a velvety béarnaise sauce. Otherwise, sharing plates, rock oysters and La Fromagerie cheeses encourage more casual grazing. A striking central bar provides focus in the airy dining space,
while the more intimate basement boasts an open kitchen.
Xavier Rousset MS’ wine bar/bistro in Marylebone is small, simple and interesting. Key to its success is the wide choice of 50 wines available in two serves of by-the-glass and carafe, as well as bottle. Five Madeiras add a quirky and interesting touch, too. And the whole thing is backed up by a one-page Collector’s List with good, interesting and old fine wines.
28:50 which after its huge success at its Fetter Lane branch has decided to open up in Marylebone Lane, which I am not surprised about, as this road seems to be the place to open up on at the moment, and keeping near its renowned Texture restaurant, which I still have not been too! It’s also just round the corner from my work, which I know is going to be dangerously addictive...

I wrote about 28:50 on Marylebone Lane a while back now, which you can read here. But being the burger fanatic I have turned into I’m now on the hunt around London searching for the best burger in town. You just never know where you might find it, so if it’s on the menu, ill order it!The burger is presented on a beautiful wooden board, which unfortunately is much too small and all the juices from the meat just run out onto the table making a mess, I constantly had to wipe a tissue round the sides of the table to prevent it from dripping onto my lap. A pot of light mustard is served on the side. The...

28-50 occupies a triangular glass fronted site in a not so busy but fashionable street in Marylebone. As we sat amongst the other diners who numbered precisely four I did a Mrs Merton and questioned " What was it that first attracted you to Agnar Sverrisson's 28-50"?Of course you may recall Mrs Merton asking a similar question to Debbie McGee. "What first attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels. Ha ha.Of course the answer to both is in the question. 28-50 is actually the second Wine workshop opened jointly between dream team business partners Agnar Sverrisson (chef) and highly respected sommelier Xavier Rousset.I...

Heritage. It’s the new organic isn’t it? Really, I don’t think it’s possible to order a non-heritage tomato in Central London anymore. This isn’t just any tomato, it’s an heritage tomato. Purleese. What did we do before? I’m bored with it now.And as if it wasn’t enough it’s spreading to other vegetables.Today, I had “heritage” carrots in 4 different colours.
