And the famous celebrity chef has announced it himself…

At the start of last month, we thought we’d spotted a brand new Jamie Oliver restaurant opening in JLT, and now it’s been confirmed by the popular British chef.

Set to open ‘very soon’, according to social media pages, Jamie’s Pizzeria by Jamie Oliver is located in Cluster R, Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT).

And here’s what Oliver had to say about it:

This is the first Jamie’s Pizzeria that will come to the city, although it will be the British chef’s third opening in Dubai. It is likely that the venue will not be licensed.

Jamie Oliver at one stage had two Dubai outlets, one in Festival City, which first opened in 2011, and one in Jumeirah Beach Hotel which followed in 2013. Neither is now in operation, after the Jumeirah Beach Hotel outlet shut its doors at the end of 2017.

Jamie’s Pizzeria currently already has three venue’s in India and two venues in the Netherlands. And if the Dubai restaurant is anything like it’s international counterparts, we’re expecting it to be a casual eatery that’s self described as ‘comfortable, convenient and affordable’.

In the Netherlands, the restaurant also offers delivery, so you might even be able to get Jamie Oliver delivered to your door…

As soon as we’ve got an opening date, we’ll be sure to let you know.
