Jamie Oliver to open new Dublin restaurant

Jamie Oliver and his international restaurant business franchise partner Gerry Fitzpatrick are set to open a brand new restaurant in the heart of Dublin – Chequer Lane by Jamie Oliver.

The menu will “celebrate the best of great Irish produce” – including fresh rock oysters from Carlingford Bay, beef cooked using a robata grill, monkfish scampi, wild garlic chicken Kiev as well as seasonal dishes that will change frequently throughout the year.

Food will be served alongside cocktails, exclusive wines, locally brewed beers and ciders. Weekend menus will also feature a selection of brunch dishes and Jamie’s famous roasts with all the trimmings.

The 100-seater restaurant is located on Dublin’s busy Exchequer Street and will open in April 2020.

Oliver said: “Chequer Lane will celebrate some of my favourite comfort food and the menu will be packed with big, hearty flavours and simple, seasonal ingredients. The food I really love to cook and diners love to eat. Ireland has some of the greatest produce in the world and we can’t wait to show it off.”

Fitzpatrick added: “Chequer Lane will be a fantastic addition to Dublin’s bustling restaurant scene. Diners can expect the very best of delicious and affordable Irish food and drink in a welcoming environment in the heart of Dublin City.

“We’re excited to be working with some of the finest local food producers and, as always, having a great team is at the heart of everything we do so we’re looking for bright, ambitious people to join us for this exciting new venture.”

Chequer Lane by Jamie Oliver will sit alongside the existing brands in the group’s international restaurant portfolio: Jamie’s Italian, Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria, Jamie’s Deli, Jamie Oliver’s Diner as well as Jamie Oliver Kitchen.

The Jamie Oliver Group currently operates 74 restaurants across 27 markets all located outside of the UK. The Jamie Oliver Group closed 22 UK restaurants last year after falling into administration.
