dining celebrity chefs Jamie Oliver
Jamie Oliver
Updated on 30 June 2015

In 2008, Jamie Oliver launched Jamie's Italian in Oxford, his first high-street restaurant venture. Jamie's Italian proved to be a great success and the global franchise now has 35 restaurants in countries such as the UAE, Australia, Ireland, Russia, Turkey, Singapore and Hong Kong.

The celebrity chef/restaurateur soon became a media personality known for his television shows, cookbooks and campaign for better food education, all of which helped to make him one of the UK housewives' favourite chefs.

In 2011, Jamie opened his first Jamie's Italian in Dubai Festival City; this was only the second of the chain's branches to be opened outside of the UK. The attractive and cozy loft-style venue boasted Jamie's innovative and creative flair, together with his deliciously concocted Italian dishes and quickly became a popular location.

Following the accomplishment of the Festival City branch, Jamie opened his second Dubai restaurant in November 2013 at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, which proved to be another great success. Unfortunately, the Festival City branch has since closed, but the Jumeirah Beach Hotel branch is still going strong.
