Jamie’s Italian, the fast-growing restaurant chain spearheaded by Jamie Oliver, has secured a site in Nottingham and is also thought to be close to taking a site in Birmingham.

The deals will take the concept to 16 restaurants – it currently trades from 10 locations with four more set to open this summer.

The casual dining concept, which is led on a day-to-day basis by Simon Blagden, is to open a restaurant in Nottingham’s Low Pavement area, having taken a site that currently trades as Jass Café.

The group is also thought to be in discussions to convert part of a former Borders book store at the Bullring in Birmingham to the format.

The group operates 10 restaurants – in Bath, Brighton, Cambridge, Canary Wharf, Cardiff, Guildford, Kingston, Leeds, Oxford and Reading – and is set to open four more in the next two months – in Covent Garden, Glasgow, Liverpool and Westfield.

Jamie Oliver recently announced a move into events catering​, and is expected to open American BBQ restaurant concept Barbacoa​ at London's One New Change development in October.
