28 Degrees Food

Hello all. I've never eaten at 28 Degrees before. A friend would like to go there for dinner and I am wondering about people's thoughts on the food. Are their any dishes I should try? Is the food any good or just mediocre? Thanks for any help you can provide.

  1. I was there a few years ago and remember their mac and cheese was REALLY good... nothing else memorable.

      Just fyi william kovell from the four seasons in doing some work for 28 so things should be changing

    2. The last time I was there was about 6 months ago. We ate at the bar and had a great time. The seared scallop entree was AMAZING and the bartender was very nice, suggesting wine pairings for each course.

      I'll be interested to see what changes the new consulting chef comes up with.

      1. I was pretty impressed by a recent meal at 28 Degrees, which I was drawn back to by their hiring of William Kovel (ex-Aujourd'hui) as a consulting chef. I really enjoyed a bunch of his new dishes there, notably a spring pea ravioli dish and a pork shumai appetizer. (They've retained some of the old menu's worthier dishes, like the thin-crust pizzas.) It's still got the same big drinks and clubby kind of vibe, not for everyone, but I think the menu refresh makes it worth another look.
