Independent Wine Specialists 28°-50° are delighted to announce that today sees the official opening of their new Oxford Circus site. Situated on Market Place, a stone’s throw from Oxford Street, the latest dining destination in the West End sees the popular restaurant group revel in a prime central location.
Situated on the former Côte Brasserie site, the latest addition to the 28°-50° family offers outdoor dining and drinking by way of a sun soaked terrace, allowing for visitors to relish the long evenings with the finest wine and modern European fare. Inside, the wine workshop will offer 120 covers and a private dining area, seating up to 25 guests.
In keeping with its sister locations, 28°-50° Oxford Circus serves a thoughtfully curated award-winning wine selection. Led by the Group Head Sommelier, Jules Bensacq, visitors will sample unique wines from the ever-evolving wine list, which offers a range of red, white and rosé, by the glass, carafe and bottle. Only serving wines approved by the team, top picks at Oxford Circus include the Albariño ‘Tambora’ and the Fleurie Domaine des Nugues, naturally accompanied by bottles and magnums of ‘Brut Majeur’ Ayala Champagne. For those looking for a post-work ‘pick me up’ the cocktail list includes a Clover Club, Sicilian Sour and Hemingway Daiquiri.
Group Head Chef Julien Baris continues to oversee the seasonally changing à la carte menu, working closely with Jules to ensure the perfect culinary and wine pairings. Hero dishes, synonymous with 28°-50° remain and include the truffle arancini, oysters and burrata whilst diners will now be able to indulge in the delicious moules marinière, octopus ceviche with red onion, fennel, jalapeños & aguachile and the succulent steak frites. Diners can opt in for the wine pairing choosing from the Discover package (£19 for 2 courses) or the Prestige package (£39 for 2 courses) whereby the charming and knowledgeable team will guide you through an exploration of distinct flavours and palates.
A new haven, one block away from the mayhem of Oxford Street, the interiors are decorated in 28°-50°’s signature style and offers a central dining bar which is the ideal spot for a pre or post dinner drink or those simply wanting a light snack or glass of wine whilst watching the world go by. For lovers of fine wine and great food, the year-round programme of tastings, workshops and curated dinners is not to be missed.
The latest location for the award-winning wine specialists’ restaurant joins Marylebone, Chelsea, South Kensington and the most recent 28-50 by Night as the newest member of the privately-owned and operated Riviera Restaurants and Luxury group, founded by Richard Green.
