Last week, I was very kindly invited along to Jamie's Italian Oxford. I hadn't been there since it first opened six years ago, in June 2008. I remember being served olives on ice in a mood lighting setting, with great atmosphere and leaving one full but happy customer. Coming back to review the restaurant, I wondered if my past experience would work for or against me, but I needn't have worried as the service and food that Friday made me a true convert of chain restaurants. If you know me well, you'd know I'd much rather scope out the little eatery out in the middle of nowhere that does the best tapas. Push my hipster nature to the side and I can really get on board with the ethos Jamie has instilled in all his restaurants and staff alike.
