Second 28-50 restaurant to open in Marylebone

Published:  29 March, 2012

Restaurateurs Xavier Rousset and Agnar Sverrisson, are to open their second 28-50 Wine Workshop and Kitchen in Marylebone, two years after their first.

Open in early June, the restaurateurs who are also behind the Michelin-starred Texture, will run it along the same line as the 28-50 on Fetter Lane as a relaxed, wine-focused bar and restaurant offering over thirty wines by the glass, carafe and bottle alongside a French bistro-style menu.

The site will have space for 70 covers over two floors encompassing a warm and rustic design with a contemporary approach.

Wine will also be a key feature, with many bottles on display to guests and the basement will have an open kitchen and a "library of wine titles".

Rousset will continue in a managerial role, supported by Fetter Lane manager Ed Newman and 28-50's head chef, Paul Walsh, will oversee the kitchen along with Sverrisson.

It will also offer Rousset's unique 'Collector's List': a selection of wines offered from the cellars of his private collector contacts at significantly reduced margins from a list  of Champagnes, premium Burgundy and Claret, mature Australian reds and Italian heavyweights.

Xavier Rousset, says: "We have always loved Marylebone, there is a special feel about this part of London and it's also a real foodie destination.

"The first 28-50 exceeded our expectations, so we are excited to try it out in the West End."

Rousset and Sverrisson launched the first 28-50 in June 2010 - it is so named after the latitudes in which most wine regions are located.
