The Marylebone branch of a high-quality trio of wine bar/restaurants, equally good for food and wine
The three outposts of 28°-50° share a similar wine list, a French-inspired menu and a bright, on-the-ball attitude, but there the resemblance ends. Fetter Lane is a basement with a French country-kitchen vibe, while Marylebone is a shiny new corner conversion, all glass and zinc with wraparound windows and a central bar. The menu offers predictable platters and pâtés, plus a handful of more involved main courses and grill dishes.
The standard is high, give or take the odd stumble (a few unnecessary relishes and flourishes, and a curio of an aubergine main dish whose miso and charred-skin flavours weren’t made for wine-pairing). We particularly rate the grilled meats; the unctuously simple ox cheek braised in red wine; the thin and crispy fries; and the notably generous prawn cocktail starter.
The wine list is a thing of joy, offering upwards of 30 varied and delicious wines from on-song suppliers, many of them small producers, plus a changing themed selection. It’s well worth exploring: order 75ml glasses and follow the young staff’s enthusiastic advice. The crowd is smart, with seats at the V-shaped bar attracting plenty of solo customers and shoppers on a quick break.
Our 'Collectors List' is showcasing fine wines from private collectors, offering our guests a chance to discover more unusual and mature wines at their peak, some of which are rarely seen in other restaurants. Spread over two floors, the venue features two dining rooms and a 12-seater bar. Whether you drop in for a drink or to dine you'll have a really special time. We also offer 'al fresco' dining and our private room is available for events, celebrations or corporate get-togethers. Private dining room can accommodate up to 16 guests for a seated meal. It is situated opposite the kitchen pass where you experience and see first-hand the attention to detail that is applied to each and every dish. This is a warm space and its proximity to the action of the kitchen makes it a unique and exciting experience.
As for indulging your passion for wonderful wine and food, you're sure to find something to whet your appetite in our year-round programme of wine tasting events, workshops and themed dinners.
