Hot List 2009

Jamie's Italian, Oxford

24-26 George Street

Tel: 44-1865-83-83-83

The first of a chain of 20 restaurants to open nationwide, Jamie's Italian is mega-chef Jamie Oliver's bid to make high-quality Italian cuisine accessible to modest budgets. His strategy? Simple, seasonal dishes with a hint of decadence: creamy tagliatelle topped with shavings of wild black truffle, and pumpkin- and ricotta-stuffed ravioli in a rich rosemary sauce. Spread over two floors, the quirky space blends modern elements like hot-pink chairs and a mural of neon pipes with pastoral Mediterranean touches such as oak wood tables and trays of dry pasta.
Tip: For the best view, grab a seat near the large windows overlooking bustling George Street (entrées, $14–$23).
