    Jamie’s Italian is now closed and that building remains empty however the building on the right is now occupied by Miller & Carter Steakhouse. The “Esslemont and Macintosh” writing as pictured above is still there which is nice to see. Never had the opportunity to enter the building when it was E&M as it was before my time but its nice to see some of the original features of the building maintained.

    The store façade has remained unchanged today. The left of the two buildings (which are joined by an aerial covered walkway) houses Jamie Oliver’s Italian restaurant on the ground and first floors. The right-hand building is still vacant. Pleased to see that the mosaic name still remains intact on both buildins

    Just looked this up on itnernet as i have just purchased a second hand faux fur coat with the label of this store and was intersted in if store still existed. what a shame as the coat i bought is of excellent quality which prompted me to look it up . hope they dont spoil the look of the old store its lovely. I really hate it when a beautiful store becomes a thing of the past. L Campbell
