Outside there’s the Doghouse, a street-food stall peddling artisan hot dogs and trendy drinks to theatre-goers and tourists in a hurry. Behind it, the entrance to Jamie Oliver’s Diner opens on to a flight of stairs, leading to a funky space full of dinosaurs – a pun on the “diner” theme – in artworks, sculptures, life-size models and even a tapestry. The furniture of course is all from recycled materials, and floor-to-ceiling windows provide an entertaining view of rushing crowds in the street below.

The dual emphasis here is on (a) fun and (b) healthy sustainable ingredients, with flavours from all corners of the globe. The street-food theme is artfully combined with the healthy eating message, so the hot dogs, burgers and fried chicken are all made from organic ingredients and free-range meat – and just to make sure, the menu uses devil horn and angel wing symbols to distinguish the virtuous from the naughty-but-nice choices. And Jamie being Jamie, there’s a guarantee that nothing is thrown away, with all left-over food composted or recycled. It’s all a great chance to enjoy finger-licking good dude food with the clearest of consciences.
