Jamie Oliver he will return to the UK’s restaurant scene with the opening of Jamie Oliver Catherine Street this November.

The chef, who announced his intention to return to restaurants earlier this year, has revealed the new venue will be an independent produce-focused concept housed in a Grade I listed building in London’s Covent Garden.

The restaurant will have 130 internal covers along with a 30-cover terrace, with a menu featuring some of the chef’s signature dishes and new recipes bespoke to Catherine Street.

It will showcase the best of British produce with ‘considered yet accessible’ dishes, spotlighting suppliers including Flourish Produce, Westcombe Dairy, Cobble Lane Cured, Hill Street Chocolate, and Wild Card Brewery.

The kitchen is helmed by head chef Chris Shail and pastry chef Emma Jackson.

Jamie Oliver commented: “I’m extraordinarily excited to be opening Jamie Oliver Catherine Street in the heart of Covent Garden, and stepping back into the UK restaurant industry that I love so dearly. It feels like an opportunity to celebrate where I’ve come from, and I’ll be sharing dishes inspired by the food that’s shaped me, dishes that I grew up cooking on the line. My hope is that Jamie Oliver Catherine Street will be a wonderfully welcoming, happy place to dine, with great service, and delicious food at its heart.

“We’ll be going big on daily specials and have a robust menu that offers something for everyone. It definitely feels like a pivotal moment in my career, and some of the very best of my restaurant teams over the years have come back to join me on this next part of the journey. To say I’m excited is an understatement. I can’t wait to see you at Jamie Oliver Catherine Street.”
