Jamie's Italian, Birmingham - December 2012

After a hectic morning shopping:) Jamie's Italian, conveniently situated outside the Bullring Birmingham, is a great place to escape to for a couple of hours.

Fabulous lighting.
The food is always consistently good at Jamie's Italian and this is our second visit to the Birmingham branch.  Themed on an industrial warehouse this branch is huge compared to others we have visited in the past.  We didn't have huge appetites after the Christmas festivities and on this occasion we had to refuse dessert.

Seafood Bucatini

Baked Shetland Salmon (they were skinny with the salmon)
Birmingham was sales crazy - a young lady saw our Selfridges shopping bag and asked for directions to the store, we decided to take her instead of the usual arm waving and trying to give directions. On the way to Selfridges she said she had come from Dubai to Birmingham for the day and she was going back to Dubai that very evening!  She had apparently flown in to Birmingham especially to visit Laura Ashley, and Cath Kidston at Selfridges in the Bull Ring.  Amazingly she was going to take her shopping back to Dubai and was then travelling on to Australia - really - she said, yes, yes!  And I thought we were brave travelling on a delayed crowded train for a 15 minute journey.....
