28°-50° Wine Workshop & Kitchen: An Experience Beyond Expectations

The restaurant scene in London has never been so hot: a vast number of bars, restaurants and cafes offer food and wine from all over the world and big-name chefs are introducing new trends every week. In such a myriad of places, one can easily get lost. Luckily, we found 28°-50° Wine Workshop & Kitchen restaurant, run by Icelandic-born, Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur, Agnar Sverrisson, the perfect place for various occasions no matter how picky you are.     

28-50 Marlybone Lane

Location. 28°-50° Wine Workshop & Kitchen Marylebone is a real hidden gem in Central London, located just a few steps from the famous shops on Oxford Street and Bond Street tube station.

Atmosphere. Full of character, it’s the ideal location to sit by floor to ceiling windows or perch on blue leather stools by the stylish bar, sip a cocktail and share a joyful food experience with friends. So we did!

The relaxed and intimate atmosphere of this elegant wine bar and restaurant in the heart of one of the most beautiful corners of London is definitely somewhere I can see myself going to on a regular basis. Now it’s time to taste the menu!

The food and drink. We were met by the smiling Karolina; she shared the dinner specials with us and offered to start the evening with cocktails while we were browsing the menu of simple, modern European food with Scandinavian influences and my favourite Asian twist.

Honestly, choosing a cocktail was a great challenge. The special cocktail menu, developed by master sommelier, Clement Robert, was full of classic concoctions and innovative wine cocktails made from spirits derived from wine grapes or topped-up with sparkling champagne.

After a long discussion, we decided to go for Kir Imperial Chambord with raspberries and champagne followed by a PXpresso Martini - both were heavenly.

So, it was time to settle down to the daily-changing menu of stylish modern European food, seafood and charcuterie by the restaurant’s executive chef.

The menu is quite short and clear, but still with a wide enough variety for everyone to find the right dish. There are at least five options for each course – salads and soups, starters, mains, grill and desserts, and there are sharing platters and cheeses, too. Karolina explained that every single dish can be matched with interesting wines from the extensive list. What’s a great idea!

Grilled prawns with garlic butter

So, we went for the grilled prawns with garlic butter and goose & mustard terrine for starters, and pan-roasted salmon with black rice and duck leg with cranberries for the main.

It’s not easy to describe the taste of the dishes and, actually there’s no need, but I have to say – it was a real gastronomic journey and I would love to repeat it as soon as possible - and I can wholeheartedly recommend you do the same: come to 28°-50° Wine Workshop & Kitchen on Marylebone Lane and have your own unique experience. It will be beyond your expectations, I guarantee you.

The story. 28°-50° Wine Workshop & Kitchen on Marylebone Lane is the second restaurant named after the latitudes between which most of the world's wines are produced. The first is in Fetter Lane and, like this one, was set up by the winning team of Sverrisson and sommelier supreme, Xavier Rousset.

Sverrisson was head chef at Blanc's Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, worked at the world-famous Gordon Ramsay's Petrus, then set up the Michelin-starred Texture Restaurant & Champagne Bar in 2007, and later opened three new restaurants, 28°-50°, where he placed a strong focus on wine (28°-50° Fetter Lane, 28°-50° Marylebone Lane and 28°-50° Maddox Street).

Cozy and elegant wine bar

“We love wine and only serve those that we drink ourselves” – the slogan of 28°-50° restaurants - and after tonight’s dinner accompanied by the best possible wines, we believe it. One can choose from one of the most unique and diverse wine lists in London, from more than 30 traditional and eclectic wines available by the glass, carafe and bottle.

I still remember my first trip. It was to London. I fell in love with this city the moment I saw it. Just - "click", and my heartbeat quickened. I was chosen by it. Red and funny double-decker buses, serious black cabs, the gorgeous Buckingham palace... That's it! I am your admirer forever! From that moment I have visited many places and have been to many countries. Traveling became my passion. My long lasting love, which I hope will never end.
