28°-50° Mayfair 1

Squaremeal Review of 28°-50° Mayfair ?

Agnar Sverrisson’s profile has been rising of late (deservedly so) and if Michelin-starred Texture is the high-flyer in the group, his three 28°-50° wine bars are near-perfect models of the genre. The interior design spec is ‘industrial warehouse meets your favourite local bistro’, so let’s have a drink first. It’s quite a simple proposition: 15 reds and 15 whites by the glass, carafe or bottle, ever-changing and always interesting, plus a host of sweet wines, rums, Cognacs and – if you’re lucky – an English fizz giving the French a run for their money. There’s a ‘collector’s list’, too, where you’ll find some damn fine vintage bottles. To eat, an all-day bar menu serves up La Fromagerie cheeses and posh burgers, while the main line-up might take you from goose and mustard terrine to Eton Mess, via steaks cooked on the grill or sea bream with an Asian broth.

Lovely food - service a little disappointing

by   (1)

Oct 2016

Having booked a table for lunch for 7 people the week before, and reconfirmed one day before the meal, my colleagues and I were a little annoyed at having to wait by the door for at least 10 minutes while the table was prepared. Not enough attention was given by staff as to who had ordered which drinks (different types of wine) and when the main courses arrived, one was incorrectly ordered by the waiter and so the lady had to wait nearly 15 minutes for her meal to arrive, during which time everyone...

Good place for quick business luncn (better for after work wine!)

by   platinum reviewer (86)

Nov 2015

I needed somewhere local to my office for a quick business lunch, two of us had half a grilled lobster with aioli and fries and the other had the mushroom risotto - all were cooked well, service was attentive. The real stars of the show here though are the wines, available in 3 sizes so you can "sample" different labels and new world wines at reasonable prices. One of the few places in London where you can pitch up and have drinks and nibbles around the bar in nice surroundings - you...

Gone downhill

by   platinum reviewer (216)

Apr 2015

0 of 1 people found this review helpful

It had been some months since I last ate here and while the concept (being able to sample a very broad range of wines at reasonable prices) remains as strong as ever, both the service my comrade and I experienced on a recent visit as well as the food had notably gone downhill. To begin, despite having booked in advance and arriving at 12.45 with quite a number of tables still unoccupied, we were shown to probably the worst table in the restaurant, wedged right in the corner right by the bar and the...

Wonderful wine and pretty good food - what's not to like?

by   platinum reviewer (216)

Dec 2013

One of the most positive developments that has occurred in the London eating/ drinking scene in recent years has been the growing democratisation of wine. Although there are still plenty of places with snooty sommeliers and fat leather bound books of over-priced French vintages, a plethora of newer establishments have also emerged offering interesting and often under-appreciated wines from around the world and by the glass. 28:50 is one of this breed and its third outlet, in Mayfair, represents a...

I had a delicious meal with friends, amazing wine list with a vast selection. Our food choices to start were foie gras, Salmon Gravlax and deep fried squid. Super variety and something to suit each of us! Main courses we went for Duck Leg Confit, Lamb Shank and Lobster. Followed by dessert of Lemon Tart and Pistachio brulee! Overall a fabulous evening and deliciuos wines. We will definitely be going back!

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”.
