River Café continues to wow and Jamie Oliver is good for the high street

13 October 2008 by

The Daily Telegraph's Jasper Gerard visits the reopened River Café, Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers' London restaurant that brought us Jamie Oliver, and suggests rarely can such a large eaterie have maintained such "incredible standards".

Jay Rayner, writing in the Observer, thinks Jamie's Italian will make the high street a far tastier place.

Andaman by Michelin starred chef Dieter MÁ¼ller is "a restaurant in only the barest technical sense" according to Matthew Norman. The Guardian critic finds the restaurant at the relaunched St James's hotel and club in London "very average" given MÁ¼ller's pedigree.
