Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has recently announced that two of his restaurants, Jamie’s Italian and Jamie’s Pizzeria, will soon be launching in India.
Jamie’s Italian will open in Ambience Mall in the capital’s Vasant Kunj area and Jamie’s Pizzeria is set to open in Ambience Mall in Gurgaon, the company said in a statement.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be bringing Jamie’s Italian and Jamie’s Pizzeria to India. Delhi is a vibrant, colourful, buzzing city with an already incredible food scene, so to be opening two restaurants there is a huge honour,” Oliver said in a statement.
“Right now we’re recruiting for two brilliant new teams who will become part of our ever-growing family. When we open the doors of both restaurants, they’ll be serving up some really beautiful, simple, great-value Italian food, all made with the very best-quality ingredients we can get our hands on,” he added.
Both restaurants will open within the next few months.
Explaining the approach to his restaurants, Oliver said: “Since I was a teenager, I’ve been totally besotted by the love, passion and verve for food, family and life itself that just about all the Italian people have, no matter where they’re from or how rich or poor they may be. And that’s what I’m passionate about – good food for everyone, no matter what.”
Jamie’s Italian was founded in 2008 in Oxford and now has its arms spread worldwide through 30 restaurants. Oliver, reportedly signed a partnership with Dolomite Restaurants Pvt. Ltd. back in 2014 to bring his restaurant to India.
