Jamie Oliver has confirmed plans to open a second London outpost of his Jamie’s Italian restaurant chain in Covent Garden next year.
The opening will be the seventh UK branch of Oliver’s informal, mid-market restaurant chain following its launch in Oxford last June. It will serve the same ‘affordable and accessible’ menu of antipasti, pastas and traditional Italian grills and salads and continue the chain’s no bookings policy.
The Covent Garden site will launch next summer, following the opening of the first London branch at Canary Wharf Mall this autumn. They will both join Jamie’s Italian branches located in Cardiff (to open in November), Bath, Kingston and Brighton.
Oliver’s expanding business empire led to him being listed in the Sunday Times Rich List as the top earning TV chef in the UK, with a personal fortune of £40m.
