Xavier

After a long hiatus, Xavier Rousset is back with a new restaurant project post 28-50 and Texture. His new baby, Blandford Comptoir, is a casual space focusing on Mediterranean cuisine with Italian influences. Taking its name from its location on Blandford Street in Marylebone, the 40-cover restaurant boasts an ever-evolving list of 250 wines and 50 Champagnes with a focus on labels from Italy and Southwest France.

Dishes include fassone beef carpaccio and 36 month old Parmesan; Sicilian red prawns; duck breast with tortellini of leg and figs; and cote boeuf with confit new season garlic and red wine jus. Rousset will host free wine tastings once a month on Saturdays featuring a dozen drops.
