Jaime Oliver’s Italian is boring

We just went to lunch today and decided to try out the new Jamie Oliver restaurant in town. Think the general consensus was that is was a disappointment. Nothing inherently wrong with the food, just that it tasted a bit bland, and when you go to a restaurant where a famous chef has put his name on the door you do not expect bland.

I *completely* agree.

Will avoid it when I come up to Cambridge next!

Indeed. The best food tends to come from chefs who spend more time in their kitchens than on the telly.
