Situated in the heart of London’s iconic Grade II listed Covent Garden lies Jamie’s Union Jacks, Jamie Oliver’s newest restaurant offering. Opened mid July 2012, it’s the fourth and latest opening in the group.A union between Jamie Oliver and American chef Chris Bianco, Union Jacks takes diners through a journey of discovery, cooked and presented the Union Jacks way. The Union Jacks menu, which revolves around delicious grills, wood-fired pizzas and British tapas, is packed with Great British flavours using produce from only the best suppliers, most of which are unabashedly local.
Designed by leading interior designers Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, the interior at Union Jacks is retro, cool and quintessentially British, with lots of vintage detailing, an ice-cream colour palette, and a busy working open kitchen complete with wood-fired pizza oven. Central to look is the vintage-style seating, with an assortment of draughtsman’s bar stools in a mix of pewter and weathered yellow finish, from restaurant furniture specialist Andy Thornton. The round, curved bar stool has a wooden seat and back rest on a tubular steel frame, ideal for casual eating at the bar or at the tall restaurant tables.
Andy Thornton also supplied three special Detroit iron refectory tables with reclaimed pine tops stained in turquoise and distressed metal, completing the restaurant’s playful urban vintage look.
Customers eating at Union Jacks in Covent Garden can combine great food with people-watching at its best, enjoying the vibrant buzz of street entertainers and busy shoppers in the capital’s unique historic market.
