Jamie Oliver is opening a new restaurant in Dublin.
Chequer Lane by Jamie Oliver will seat a hundred people and will be located on Exchequer Street.
It will open in April.
The British chef already owns Jamie’s Italian at Dundrum shopping centre.
The new restaurant will create around 30 jobs and recruitment is underway to fill the positions of Head Chef, Sous Chefs and Managers in addition to hospitality roles.
Speaking about Chequer Lane, Jamie 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.”
Last year the chef was forced to close most of his UK restaurants after the British side of his business went into administration, with 1,000 jobs lost.
