Eating Out in Leeds: Super Lunch at Jamie’s Italian

I met Daisy from Prettygreentea at the Blognix conference a couple of years ago in Birmingham. We knew each other on Twitter and when Daisy arrived at the event she recognised my glasses, which happens to me a lot! Haha. Since then we’ve talked almost every day and she introduced me to Fran from Frances Bee at a later networking event too. The three of us got together to head to the Blognix Retreat blogging and wellness weekend earlier this year and road tripped down there talking about business and blogging. These guys are my support network, my colleagues and damn good friends now too.

Elizabeth of Blognix introduced us to the idea of a Mastermind session where smaller groups get together to discuss problems they’re experiencing and brain storm solutions. It’s a great way of getting a second opinion and sometimes just talking about these things really helps too. The three of us decided we would get together regularly for a Mastermind session and our first date was in Leeds. We headed to Jamie’s Italian who kindly offered us a free meal to try out their Super Lunch Menu. It was the perfect setting for bloggers with super cool decor and it was just busy enough to get a great vibe and still be able to hear each other.

You can get two courses from the slimmed down menu for £10.95 (or three for £12.95!) which makes business lunches that bit more affordable when you work for yourself! Unfortunately I choose poorly for the starters as my tagliatelle was very al dente and I couldn’t seem to get any on my fork… the taste was great though, despite my frustrations, haha. Daisy choose a crispy seafood starter which I wish I’d ordered as soon as it arrived. I managed to sneak a taste too and I definitely recommend that instead.

The Chicken Club arrived on a chunky chopping board with a giant chilli tucked inside. We ordered a side of funky chips to share and although the portion size looked quite small, there was plenty between three of us with all our other food!
We were also celebrating Fran’s new job and so we slipped in a glass of sparkling wine as well. Daisy and I tried the red wine version which was as delicious as it looked! Congrats Fran!!

The whole day out was great and we set ourselves a list of goals that we shared with each other for accountability! The staff at Jamie’s Italian in Leeds were fabulous, giving really detailed explanations of the food choices and specials available. We were even invited to pop our heads round into the kitchen so I can assure you it’s lovely and clean! In the entrance there are lots of Jamie Oliver branded gifts and ingredients too so you can make yourself a super lunch at home.

    I love Jamie’s, it’s always super yummy and definitely bridges the gap between being super cool and hip, and affordable for everyone. Your friends sound amazing too, it’s brilliant to have a support network, especially one to go to blog events with!
