February 2018: Harden's understands Jamie O’s temple for meat-lovers, where prices are often “shocking”, has pulled out of opening a third site at Victoria's Nova development. The Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group has put the two existing Barbecoa steakhouses (City and Piccadilly) on the market amid restructuring plans that have seen the company agree to shutter 12 Jamie's Italian sites across the UK.

Summary

“Good quality meat but SOOOO overpriced” – that’s the trade off at Jamie Oliver’s good-looking chain of luxury grills, which added a new, swish-looking branch right by Piccadilly this year. So long as you are packing the company’s plastic, the City original (in a big mall), which has “great views of St Paul’s”, can be “perfect for business”.

Summary

For “a good, if expensive” business lunch, numerous expense accounters recommend Jamie Oliver’s “rather American-feeling shed of a space, in a shopping centre, overlooking St Paul’s” (with branches in Victoria and Piccadilly), whose speciality is US-style BBQ. Even some fans feel “it’s really not worth the price you pay” however, and to sceptics it’s just totally “uninspiring and average”.

Summary

"Stunning views over the roof top of St Paul's Cathedral" at the City original is the "saving grace" at Jamie O's temple for meat-lovers, where prices are "shocking" for what's basically a BBQ. "I've had better on street markets". A massive 300-cover new Piccadilly sibling is set to open in December 2016.
