UK celebrity chef Jamie Oliver announced plans on Wednesday to open a new restaurant in central Stockholm.
The Naked Chef announced on Wednesday plans to launch an Italian restaurant, Jamie's Italian, in Stockholm's Stureplan area.
"I'm really looking forward to kicking off our first restaurant in Stockholm," the chef said in a statement, according to the Allt om Stockholm website. "It's going to be epic."
The restaurant, which promises a focus on local and organic produce, will be located in the lobby of the Scandic Anglais hotel. Oliver, who is famous for his cookbooks and television programmes, has branched out from the typical cooking shows in recent years, adding campaigning for healthy food in national UK schools to his business ventures.
The Stockholm eatery, which will open in the autumn and boast enough space for 200 diners, will be one of the Brit's many restaurants around the world, with others in the UK, Australia, Russia, Singapore, and Turkey.
