The Saturday Lunch Feast at 28-50 Restaurant
As you all know I LOVE twitter! Well 28-50 restaurant gave me yet another reason to love twitter when they used it to invite me to sample their new Saturday Feast Lunch Menu at the Marylebone site as their guests, to provide honest feedback on their new lunchtime offering. I was truly honoured and pleased to be able to take Mr WFD along.
We were greeted warmly and enthusiastically when we arrived and were given a great summary of what the new Saturday Feast Lunch experience included. The menu is straightforward, the feast consists of sharing platters designed for 2-3 people and has a range of drinks selected to suit the dishes on the feast. It is an extensive lunch but is made up of perfectly sized sharing portions. There was something for everyone, even vegetarians, on these platters and I have to say it was like some kind of foodie heaven. The drinks have been specially selected to match the dishes and are great value, starting from just £5 for a glass of wine. Mr WFD had a Bloody Mary with an oyster whilst I started off lunch in style with a glass of Roederer Champagne. To accompany our actual meal Mr WFD went for a glass of Soave Classico Ca’ Rugate (which is a balanced dry white wine) and I went for a glass of red wine, Languedoc “Terre de Karantes”.
Here’s a list of what’s on the feast menu – Cheese Burger, Buffalo Chicken Wings, Salmon Mi-Cuit, Chicken Liver Parfait with Sauternes jelly, Saucisson Sec (a variety of thick, dry,cured sausage from France), Green Salad, Babaganoush, A variety of French Cheese and Skinny fries. My favourite dishes were the chicken liver parfait, the salmon mi-cuit (cured salmon) and the buffalo wings. But honestly everything was a delight to my taste buds. My only issue was that both the hot and cold dishes were served at the same time and we went for the cold dishes to start with, not a good idea because by the time we got to the hot dishes they were just warm. Habit made me do this, going for the cold starters is something I’m used to doing but it may have helped if the hot dishes came out a little later or if I just remembered to go straight for the hot dishes! I blame the over-excitement of seeing all that food LOL!
There was almost TOO much food, I was stuffed but very happy. At just £30* for the actual feast, not per person but for the whole feast, this is great food at a great value price for such a centrally located restaurant. There are so many reasons to head down to 28-50 restaurant in Marylebone for this feast but to be honest with a deal like this who needs a reason! Just go with an empty stomach and let their team take care of you.
