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.
The 28°-50° Wine Workshop & Kitchen concept takes the traditional wine bar experience to a whole new level, with impeccable food and extensive wine choices. Come to enjoy fantastic service in a relaxed, approachable atmosphere with stylish surroundings, at the south end of Marylebone Lane (two minutes from Oxford Street).
Whether you are dropping in for an after-work drink, a romantic meal, dining with loved ones or joining us for an event, we are proud of our reputation for delivering exceptional service in a very relaxed atmosphere. We have over 30 carefully chosen wines, available by the glass, and with a little help from our insightful and warm sommeliers, you can pair your chosen grape with our seasonally changing, modern European menus, created with skill and imagination by our highly talented executive chef Julien Baris.
Choose from our bright and airy central dining room or our private bar and dining room. In the warmer months, feel free to dine al fresco on on Marylebone Lane or treat your guests to our private dining room for your next event, celebration or corporate get-together. Our dedicated teams will ensure your visit is a memorable one.
