RESTAURANT REVIEW: 28-50 Fetter Lane

I'm not much of a wine drinker but when I was invited to 28-50, Fetter Lane to enjoy an evening of food and Burgundy wines I knew it would be a great opportunity to broaden my knowledge.

The evening started with salted cod on bruschetta and baked celeriac on cracker cruditĂ©s. Both snacks were absolutely delicious, especially the celeriac which was extremely moorish. To accompany the  canapĂ©s we were served a lovely, fresh Chablis (Le Bas de Chapelot, Vocoret 2013) which I very much enjoyed.

Our starter consisted of huge, meaty scallops in a deliciously creamy sauce. This was accompanied by a slightly oaked white wine (Puligny Montrachet, Chateau de Puligny Montrachet, Etienne de Montille 2009). Whilst this was my least favourite of the four wines, thanks to the oakiness, I still think it worked well with the shellfish.

Our main course of pigeon breast and leg with a side of potatoes was wonderful. Both meats have distinctive flavours and accompanied with a glass of red (Gevrey Chambertin O.Bernstein 2011) this was probably my favourite course.

The dessert was definitely the most unusual of the meal. It tasted more like a starter thanks to the use of savoury flavours. When I read goats cheese, pickled beetroot, grapes and chocolate on the menu I had no idea what to expect. The end result was most certainly tasty but I couldn't quite get my head around the lack of something sweet, even with the chocolate. This was served with an enjoyable glass of red (Morgon Javernieres, L.C.Desvignes 2012) which I could have happily kept sipping for the remainder of the evening.

I had a wonderful evening at 28-50 sampling delicious food and getting to know a little about Burgundy wine. If you're a wine enthusiast I definitely recommend checking out the wine bar's events which have different themes. The event we attended cost £85 per person which sounds like a lot but when you take into account the high quality food and the fact that your wine glass is constantly topped up throughout the evening I think it is most definitely excellent value.
