Following fellow celebs Wolfgang Puck and Mario Batali, the TV chef’s Asian debut will open in Singapore next year.
Jamie’s Italian, one of several restaurant brands owned by the 37-year-old British TV star famed for waging war on unhealthy eating, will start serving diners at Singapore’s VivoCity — a lifestyle/retail complex across from Sentosa Island — in the summer of 2013.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be opening a restaurant in VivoCity,” said Oliver, whose net worth has been estimated to be around US$235 million. “It’s such a fantastic location and I’m delighted to be able to bring Jamie’s Italian experience to the wonderful people of Singapore.”
Singapore will be the restaurant chain’s fifth international opening. In addition to 30 locations in Britain, Jamie’s Italian has outlets in Dubai, Dublin, Perth and Sydney.
Though Oliver is one of several celebrity chefs making the move into Singapore in recent years, he’s arguably the most famous of the lot in terms of public recognition.
