Jamie's Italian, Sydney

Hi guys!! This post is more of a reminiscent one, I didn't have enough time to post it before I left since I only went here a week before taking off. A bunch of friends and I went to Jamie Oliver's new restaurant, Jamie's Italian in the CBD for lunch. We were lucky as we were a group of 8 and the restaurant only takes bookings for groups of 7 or more. I don't know if I'd be patient enough to wait in cue on a busy night....I've heard the cues get quite large with waits of up to 1 or even 2 hours! Hopefully that may have changed since you'd think the hype would have died down by now.

As soon as I stepped into the place I knew it would be somewhere I'd want to come to again and again....the interior is so charmingly rustic and comfy! I loved the use of space - the restaurant was long rather than wide, but it seemed like it went on forever. The mirrors that were placed on the right side of the restaurant obviously made the place seem larger than it actually was, but the mirrors themselves were beautiful so they served as an attraction. The lighting was absolutely PERFECT for photography and I have a feeling this was done on purpose, knowing that many bloggers and foodies would flock to the place and snap away at the delicious dishes.

And don't think that interior is the only reason why I'd go back there!! I absolutely loved the food!! The menu is quite extensive, and I'd say this is a really good place to go if your up for vegetarian. Now, I think people who know my quite well know I have a large aversion to cheese, and you'd think that that would turn me off Italian. Annnnnd quite frankly, I have to admit my stomach sank when the waiter arrived with our food and I saw that everything comes with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese (duh right =P). I should have anticipated this, because I am an ardent fan of Jamie and I am well aware of his obsession with both olive oil and parmesan cheese, and our perceptions of 'a little sprinkling' are sorta different =P. Anyways, I wasn't gonna be fussy, so I braced myself and took a bite of the mushroom fritti....and I was quite surprised!! It all tasted so good!! I wouldn't go as far as to say I'd order a big plate of spag bol and ask for a massive grating of cheese all over it, but it's still a step forward!!

Entrees - Funky Chips, Bread Selection (with vinegar

Enough rambling about cheese, the food as I said, was amazing. Even more so was dessert!! The pictures themselves look drool-worthy....

But wait! I have a better picture....

Overall, we had a lovely time, and i'm ready to go back!! There were so many dishes I wanted to try (as usual =P).
