Scandinavia: Scandic Opens Jamie’s Italian Restaurant in Stockholm
On Thursday, Oct. 16, Scandic and chef Jamie Oliver will be opening the Nordic region’s first Jamie’s Italian at Scandic Anglais in Stockholm. With its 195 seats and large bar, the restaurant will be serving Italian food using local and organic produce combined with fresh pasta made on the premises daily. Most of the main courses will cost no more than $27.
Earlier this year, the Nordic hotel chain Scandic and Jamie Oliver announced their joint venture to bring Jamie’s Italian into the Nordic market. Now the region’s first Jamie’s Italian is opening at Scandic Anglais in central Stockholm.
British chef Jamie Oliver has Jamie’s Italian outlets in approximately 50 locations worldwide, with the majority in the UK. Jamie’s Italian is a collaboration between Jamie Oliver and his Italian mentor Gennaro Contaldo, who opened their first restaurant in the UK in 2008.
The restaurant at Scandic Anglais draws on the colours and character of the area, taking inspiration from the nearby National Library of Sweden and the Old Town. The collaboration between Scandic and Jamie Oliver began back in 2008 with dishes and menus composed specially for Scandic.
