Summary

Summary

As befits a well-known wine expert, Xavier Rousset’s “buzzy” Marylebone bar has a “superbly curated selection of vintages by the glass”, but also “excellent”, straightforward Mediterranean (primarily Italian) cooking. Top Tip: “very good value set lunch for £20”.

Summary

“The justly-renowned wine-list” is the key feature of Xavier Rousset’s “crowded” yearling, but its “friendly” style and “simple, effective” Italian dishes, all contribute to its very high popularity as “a good addition to Marylebone”.

Summary

“A superb wine list, well laid out, and fairly priced” (with 250 bins and 50 champagnes) is the cornerstone of this small Marylebone newcomer – from Texture and 28°-50° co-founder Xavier Rousset – but its varied menus of small and large plates gets a strong thumbs up too.

The chef

BEN MELLOR


Head Chef


Head Chef Ben Mellor is a born and bred Londoner. He cut his teeth in the Savoy Hotel, Monsieur Max, McClements and Drakes before joining Xavier Rousset at 28.50 Fetter Lane, where he became Executive Chef. When not plating-up the freshest cuisine in Marylebone, he can be found hunting down the perfect Old Fashion cocktail… luckily our solera-aged Pichon Fashion is close at hand.
