Rendezvous Returns at 28:50 Chelsea

Rendezvous Return Party at 28°- 50° Chelsea

22nd June 2021

What a wonderful night we had at the swish new Chelsea edition of our favourite restaurant family: 28:50. Our first party since September last year, how crazy to have had our wings clipped for all this time.

We were greeted by 28:50’s Head of Marketing, Jen Atkins, who is an unstoppable force; no ask, however small, is a problem such is her uniquely positive attitude.  Like a champagne cork that has just popped, she was off like a torpedo hosting our every whim.  I don’t know about you, our wonderful guests, but I could get used to that!  More effervescence came in the form of a glass of Prosecco on arrival which slipped down exceptionally well and 28:50 treated us with their signature snacks including delicious truffle arancini and artichoke tempura with aioli.  And just as it looked as if we might be about to faint from hunger (maybe a slight exaggeration) along came tray after tray of man-size burgers on delightfully light and fluffy brioche buns, I think the word on everyone’s lips was ‘don’t mind if I do’.

So, I think you’re getting the picture. Sumptuous and brand-new restaurant, highly capable staff including the fabulous Jen, Manager Monika overseeing, and the wonderful Ruben topping up drinks.

And what about our guests?  Yes, you.  There was such great energy in the room; the newbies were scooped up and treated like old friends and old friends treated as precious treasure.  It really is such a joy to have Rendezvous’ wonderful events back – thank you all for supporting us over the years and continually introducing us to your delightful, single friends.

Looking forward to a bigger party in August and I do apologise (on behalf of Boris) for the smaller numbers.


Some lovely feedback….
