Jamie Oliver confirms new restaurant opening in Dubai’s JLT

It’s been confirmed by the celebrity chef himself

We saw the sign go up – and now it’s been confirmed by the man himself.

Jamie Oliver is opening a new restaurant in Dubai.

The naked chef is launching his pizzeria in JLT and we can’t wait to swing by Cluster R for a slice.

According to an announcement on Facebook, the restaurant will be opening very soon and if it’s anything like the outlets in other parts of the world, then we can expect the likes of the classic pepperoni and chilli freak… sounds spicy.

The opening will be the first of Jamie’s Pizzerias in Dubai, although the UK celebrity chef previously had two restaurants in the city – the first in Dubai Festival City and the second in Jumeirah Beach Hotel, although neither are still in operation.

The restaurant promises to be comfortable, laid back and affordable and we imagine the pizzeria will be a big hit with the JLT crowd.

It is also conveniently located within walking distance of Axe House as well as Nola Eatery and Social House, which means it already has our vote.

Oliver said: “My pizzerias are all about incredible authentic, hand stretched pizzas topped with the most fantastic and most delicious ingredients.

“Plus some salads and some delicious desserts, you’re going to absolutely love it.”

We’ll take your word for it, Jamie.

There is no official opening date yet, although we are waiting with bated breath (and growling stomachs).
Opening soon. JLT Cluster R, www.jamieoliver.com.
