The Naked Chef is coming to town. We’re all excited about the impending opening of Jamie’s Italian in Bali in 2015. The Jamie Oliver group of family-friendly Italian eateries, together with Hotel Properties Limited (HPL), is working to secure a prime location on the famed Kuta Beach, next to Hard Rock Hotel Bali.
Jamie Oliver partnered with his Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo, to open his first Jamie’s Italian in 2008 in Oxford, England, serving food inspired by their childhoods. Today, Jamie’s Italian has more than 40 international outlets and a cult-like following, celebrating its delicious, affordable dishes and friendly, personable service.
Expect rustic, authentic Italian dishes rejuvenated with Jamie’s quintessential twists, utilizing the region’s freshest, most sustainable ingredients from the best producers and suppliers, housed in a unique space designed to showcase its stunning beachfront venue – an antipasti station, open kitchen and a large alfresco dining area.
“I’m really excited at the prospect of bringing Jamie’s Italian to Kuta Beach in Bali. We’re thrilled to be working with HPL again, who are absolutely fantastic partners. Beautiful food and some really amazing cocktails coupled with sun, sand and sea – what’s not to love?” says Jamie Oliver.
Welcome to paradise, Jamie!
