Oliver and long-term business partner Kelly Miles will launch Andi’s in mid March.
It will serve brunches throughout the day and take on a brasserie-style format in the evening with dishes including French toast bacon sandwich with maple syrup; Reuben sandwiches (including a vegan option) and variations on baked eggs.
“Our food will uplift the spirit and calm the heart,” says Oliver. “It’s a little bit of love in your tummy.”
Oliver and Miles have run Sugar Shack residency at the Jackdaw & Star in Homerton for the past two and a half years and have also held events at The Birdcage in east London, which have attracted celebrities including Jay-Z, Neneh Cherry, and Nick Grimshaw.
Oliver recently replaced Prue Leith as a permanent judge on BBC2’s The Great British Menu and is a regular on the panel of Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet.
