28°-50° Fondue Experience

It may be some time since we cruised a blue but that’s not stopping our friends at 28°-50° Wine Bar & Kitchen from recreating a little alpine atmosphere at The Yards.

It may be some time since we cruised a blue but that’s not stopping our friends at 28°-50° Wine Bar & Kitchen from recreating a little alpine atmosphere at The Yards.

You’ll start with a glass of authentic Kir, or Viognier wine from their chateau in the French Alps, before swiftly moving onto the main event – a Fondue Savoyarde. An unctuous combination of cheeses from the Savoie region (Beaufort, Comté and Abondance), is melted in white wine and kirsch and is perfect for plentiful dunking. The fondue is served alongside a charcuterie platter and walnut salad and is finished off with bourbon and chocolate mousse.

The three-course menu is on offer Monday to Wednesday through April and May for lunch or dinner. There are limited spaces on the terrace so booking is advised but not essential.

Friday night Maison Bab delivery

The original modern kebab guys are backing your Friday nights in with food deliveries from Maison Bab at The Yards.

The original modern kebab guys are backing your Friday nights in with food deliveries from Maison Bab at The Yards.

Your post-pub doner, this is not. Maison Bab’s menu takes the best of British ingredients and turns them into ‘babs’ not to be taken lightly. With a mix of Indian, East Asian and Middle Eastern flavours, there’s something for every taste bud and a fondue sauce to boot.

Kick-start your Friday evening with something from the mezze menu, like their Turkish Korean fried chicken with a side of organic padrón peppers with sexy salt. Then, make room for a seriously tasty shawarma or shish, ranging from Poll Dorset lamb to 15-hour slow-cooked pork. There’s also a good array of hearty and flavour-filled veggie options to choose from.

Order online from Just Eat, Deliveroo, Uber Eats, or in-person.

Kebab Queen at Maison Bab is back

The exclusive dining experience courtesy of the team at Maison Bab is back soon. Bookings open for May 17 onwards.

The team at Maison Bab are delighted to reopen the doors to their unusual fine dining experience once again, Wednesday to Saturday evenings from 17 May.

Kebab Queen is a project of four years’ thought, love and development and they’re on a mission to banish your preconceptions of all things ‘bab’.

Head through the kitchen, down into the hidden basement and take your seat on one of eight electric blue leather stools – it’s time to settle in for a six-course feast like you’ve never sampled before. Apart from the tasting menu label, the other hallmarks of fine dining are off the cards as everything is served directly onto a central heated countertop, apart from the drinks, which keep cool on their raised marble coasters.

The sitting starts at 6.30 pm and costs £75 pp and £55 for the drinks flight. Book now to adventure and indulge in the world of kebabs.
