One of television’s friendliest celebrity chefs, Jamie Oliver, has opened his signature restaurant chain Jamie’s Italian at The Dubai Mall.
While the British chef is well-known amongst Dubai’s foodies, what with him being a heavyweight on the cookery show scene with breakout shows such as The Naked Chef and What’s Cooking? With Jamie Oliver, the city so far only has only had a thin slice of the gigantic pie that’s Oliver’s restaurant empire – Jamie’s Pizzeria in JLT.
All that’s set to change now that Jamie’s Italian set up base in the world’s largest mall, and the man himself will fly down to Dubai next week to celebrate the launch and break bread (garlic, we hope) with diners.
While the restaurant has already had a soft opening and diners have been streaming in and out of the casual eatery located next to the Dubai Fountain exit, a proper celebration with all the trimmings will be held on Wednesday, June 8, and Thursday, June 9 where you can meet Jamie Oliver.
Here’s how you can get in on the fun: make sure you’re following both @apparelgroup and @jamiesitaliangcc on Instagram, and sign up here.
Freshly made pastas with a side of face-to-face interaction with one of the world’s most famous chefs are not all that the menu has to offer.
You can tuck into a selection of homemade pizzas, salads, antipasti, and desserts that all focus on seasonal produce.
This first Dubai outpost of Jamie’s Italian at The Dubai Mall is the result of a partnership between Jamie Oliver Restaurants and local franchise partner Apparel Group. And the restaurant chain which is located at around 20 locations worldwide doesn’t intend to stop with just one venue in Dubai. There are whispers of a second outlet opening in Dubai Hills in the next couple of months.
