Named after the latitudes within which most of the world’s vineyards are located, the 28°-50° Wine Workshop and Kitchen takes the traditional wine bar experience to a whole new level. Owned by Chef Patron Aggi Sverrisson of Michelin starred Texture, 28°-50° provides a relaxed and informal dining experience whilst serving up fresh, seasonally focused, modern-European cuisine.

28°-50° was a 15 minute walk from the Amba Hotel and a couple from Oxford St. The welcome was warm yet informal and, having asked our waiter to recommend wine pairings for us, we tucked into what would become one of the most elegant, comforting 3 course meals we were to enjoy in the capital.

Apparently the menu changes daily; we started with chilled tomato gazpacho and a Thai pomelo salad…

…then we both had the veggie lasagne as main…

…before diving into the Icelandic baked Ãsey Skyr (ice cream, granola, strawberries & mint) and a chocolate desert (such a texture range!).

It was a joy, as was the wine. There were more than 30 wines available by the glass, carafe and bottle, a fine selection that the waiter explained artfully.

Give 28°-50° a try, you’ll enjoy outstanding, well priced fare with options for veggie and omni alike, served by knowledgeable staff in a great location.
