Friday lunchtime with the girls from work we all decided to go and have a lunch date with Jamie Oliver Italian Restaurant in Sydney. I loved all the little details from the entry, passed the bar, open kitchen, bookshelf full of Jamie’s recipe books, walking up the stairs, our cosy little table, and Jamie’s napkin. We had to get in there early due to NO BOOKINGS NECESSARY!
For starters we had FAT GREEN OLIVES ON ICE, these large juicy green olives, black olive tapenade & crispy "music bread". YUM if you’re an olive fan! For drinks BOTTLEGREEN SODAS your choice of cordial topped off with sparkling mineral water. Image taken were Strawberry and Aromatic Lime flavours – very refreshing!
Here comes the main... we tried FISH BAKED IN A BAG (Local fish of the day with clams, mussels, fennel, chilli, anchovies & Sicilian cracked wheat), WAGYU BRESAOLA & BEET SALAD (Balsamic beets with chicory, pea shoots & fiery grated) and BURGER ITALIANO (Wagga Wagga beef with fontina cheese, salami, soft lettuce, tomato salsa, dill pickles, chilli & fried onions) topped with FUNKY CHIPS (fresh garlic and parsley). All of the main dishes were so filling we had no room for dessert :(
Jamie's menu, restaurant layout, and service was outstanding!
