Julien leads a skilled team of talented international chefs to deliver delicious, seasonally-led Modern European dishes.
With a background in graphic design, Riccardo’s transition to the hospitality industry was quite recent. However, with his determined mind-set that he developed during his early sporting career, he successfully worked his way up the ranks and is now the very competent general manager of 28-50 Marylebone and by Night.
Simone our Head Sommelier has a rich London-based hospitality background, working for the likes of Gordon Ramsay’s Michelin-awarded Aubergine, Club Gascon & Sexy Fish, Mayfair.
