Chef Jamie Oliver and King Street Food Company are excited to announce their partnership, with plans to open the first North American location of Jamie’s Italian in Toronto, Canada, with more locations to follow in the future. With restaurants in the UK and eight other international destinations including Hong Kong, Sydney and Singapore, Jamie’s Italian’s simple, fresh and authentic menu and warm, welcoming, atmosphere is sure to charm Canadian diners.
King Street Food Company, known for industry excellence with a roster of restaurants including Toronto’s Buca and Jacobs & Co Steakhouse, is the ideal partner to make high quality food more broadly accessible. The restaurant is scheduled to open its doors in Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Spring 2015.
Speaking of the launch, Jamie Oliver said, "Canada is a place very close to my heart. I'm always excited about spending time there, and whenever I visit, I always get an amazing welcome. For a while now, I've been on the lookout for the perfect partner to open a restaurant with. So, when I tasted the menu at Buca, and found that we had the exact same ideas in mind, I knew I had found the right guys to kick start this exciting project with. It’s going to be epic!”
