Jamie Oliver will be launching a “Jamie’s Italian” restaurant in Hong Kong in Spring/Summer of 2010, and we’re definitely looking forward to it! We feel like there’s a bit of a gap in the market for a mid-range Italian – Isola and Tuscany by H make sure the higher end is well covered. The price range is likely to be around HK$300 per head for a starter, main course and glass of wine – pretty reasonable!
There are currently 5 branches of Jamie’s Italian in the UK – it is amazing how Jamie is heading for world domination! You can also buy his eponymous line of food products in Olivers in Central.
Having cooked some recipes from Jamie’s Italian cookbook, I’ll be excited to try this new restaurant. The cookbook is full of rustic treats, and the risotto section in particular is excellent.
We’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear more news on where the restaurant will be located.
