Jamie Oliver’s international restaurant business is launching a brand new all day dining concept, Jamie Oliver Kitchen, bringing diners around the world delicious, accessible food from a diverse and exciting menu – celebrating Jamie’s journey through food over the past 20 years.
Whether it’s a hearty brunch, a quiet coffee, a casual lunch, drinks with friends, a simple supper, a selection of sharers or full-on dinner – Jamie Oliver Kitchen will offer all-day eating at its best. From the ultimate in comfort food or super-tasty, healthier choices, the restaurant will cover all the bases with a whole host of enticing, tempting dishes, using only the best ingredients.
Menus will tap into the very best of Jamie Oliver, and be easily adapted to local flavours and food trends, giving each restaurant flexibility and the ability to evolve alongside changing consumer tastes.
Jamie Oliver Kitchen restaurants will have a relaxed and contemporary feel, and key features will include a welcoming open kitchen, a cafe area, flexible seating with both larger tables for sharing and soft areas to lounge in, as well as casual bar dining.
Jamie Oliver said: “Over the past 20 years, I have travelled around the world to discover exciting flavour combinations, picking up incredible influences along the way. The new restaurants will bring those inspirations to life and serve some of my absolute all-time favourites. Whether you want to grab a quick bite in a relaxed setting, have a proper sit down meal with friends and family, or grab a drink at the bar, we have created a beautiful space for everyone to enjoy the food I truly love.”
Paul Hunt, Chief Executive of The Jamie Oliver Group, said: “While diners around the world continue to enjoy our established brands including Jamie’s Italian, we wanted to add to our portfolio and create a concept that allows us to really showcase the best of Jamie Oliver, while giving our franchise partners in each market the flexibility to adapt menus to local tastes and trends.”
The first two sites to open under the new concept are in Bali Kuta Beach and Bangkok Siam Discovery, both run by franchise partner HPL. These sites will be converted from a Jamie’s Italian and relaunch as Jamie Oliver Kitchen on the 21st and 28th November respectively.
In Bangkok, diners can expect to see dishes including a soft shell crab burger with a green papaya salad and sriracha mayo (pictured), a low and slow short rib cooked in massaman spices (pictured), and plenty of salads including Jamie’s sunshine salad of quinoa, charred corn, mango & crispy tofu. In Bali, meanwhile, the menu will showcase delicious summer rolls, Jamie’s insanity burger and a brilliant beef cheek cooked in Indonesian spices.
Jamie Oliver Kitchen will sit alongside the other brands in the international restaurant portfolio: Jamie’s Italian, Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria, Jamie’s Deli and Jamie Oliver’s Diner. The Jamie Oliver Group currently operates 70 restaurants across 27 markets, collaborating with 20 franchise partners. A further 19 openings are currently planned up until the end of 2020.
