Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Restaurant in London

After I stay in the hotel room for the whole afternoon for emails and IDD, I went out alone to take the subway to the Old Street Station to visit the famous Fifteen Restaurant by Jamie Oliver. I heard that they usually need a reservation of 6 months in advance. I had 2 hours in advance. So I decided to go there earlier. Much earlier. They normally start to serve dinner at 6:00pm, so I was there at 5:30pm, and asked for a table for one.

It worked. They put me at the Trattoria, which is the more casual restaurant upstairs of the main restaurant. I didn’t really mind as long as it is good. I promised to give the table back to them before they were full (but after I was full).

I stayed at the bar for a glass of Italian house red (only then I knew it is a Italian Restaurant). The wine was good, and the food was good too. I had a good grilled squid and sardine as the starter, and then a seafood pasta as the middle course. I had a grilled rib eye steak for the main course, with spinach and cheese salad on the top. Delicious. The olive oil and vinegar that goes with the Italian bread is also very good too.

I recommend this restaurant to everyone who like good and fresh food. Especially for those who love olive oil and pasta, you shouldn’t miss this. And if you don’t have 6 months in advance, you could try my trick to go there earlier to grab a seat.
