Jamie’s Italian is set to expand to Western Australia’s burgeoning food capital, Perth. This time, opening at 140 in the Perth CBD (The Mitchell Building, between Wellington St and Murray St Mall) in early 2013.
The new restaurant will feature the renowned Jamie’s Italian signatures of a unique pasta machine (producing fresh pasta daily) and the legendary planks of anti-pasti too. Boasting a spacious dining and bar area, the Martin Brudnizki designed space will definitely leave Perth diners having experienced the Jamie Oliver wow factor.
“Australia has always been close to my heart since I first visited around a decade ago and I had a brilliant time when I was there earlier this year for the launch of Jamie’s Italian Sydney. I get a lot of wonderful tweets from Australians who have eaten at Jamie’s Italian restaurants in the UK, and now Sydney, so to have another Jamie’s Italian open in Australia is really special for me. We’ve wanted to open in Perth for a while and now we’ve found the perfect location on William Street, right in the heart of the city”, enthuses Oliver.
Similarly to the Sydney Pitt Street location, the menu at Jamie’s Italian Perth will showcase a spectacular variety of fresh pastas, authentic Italian mains and delicious antipasti made with impeccably-sourced, high-quality, fresh and sustainable produce. Each dish at Jamie’s Italian has a unique element which makes it different, offering gourmets and fans an unrivalled experience coupled with a rustic and authentic Italian ambience.
Jamie’s Italian is also recruiting nationwide, with approximately 100 new roles up for grabs. There will be fantastic opportunities at all levels, from Apprentice Chefs to Restaurant Managers. With exceptional training in Jamie Oliver’s food ethos and the never-ending possibilities to learn, the opportunities to thrive and progress within the Jamie’s Italian team are endless.
“We’re always looking for superstars at Jamie’s Italian – at every level. So managers, chefs, waiters and waitresses, bar staff and pot-washers, if you’re fantastic, enthusiastic and keen to learn, then we’d love you to be part of this exciting new project”, comments Jamie.
