Jamie’s Italian, the casual dining chain spearheaded by Jamie Oliver, has opened its first takeaway deli in Bath. The site in the Milsom Place shopping centre serves different products at different times of the day, including coffee and pastries in the morning. It includes a meat counter serving cured meats and cheeses, while meals such as pasta will be available. Oliver said: "This is such an exciting development for Jamie's Italian and Bath is one of our most beautiful restaurants so I'm really happy we're launching there. "We've been talking about doing a deli since before we even opened the first Jamie's Italian in Oxford and finally we're in a position where we can do it." The group plans to open a further six sites in the UK this year taking its estate to 30. The chain is set to open in Edinburgh, Norwich and York before the end of the year, and last week opened in Gatwick. In April M&C Report revealed that it plans to open its first site in Ireland, in Dublin, later this autumn.
