Jamie Oliver launched two outposts, Jamie’s Pizzeria and Jamie’s Italian, in Gurgaon and New Delhi respectively. Each restaurant is unique and carefully designed to incorporate the history of the building, the personality of the city and to create an atmosphere where the focus is on exceptional food and good company.
Designed by Studio Lotus with Jamie’s Indian International (JII) design team, Jamie’s Pizzeria is very similar to Jamie’s Italian; the sites are rustic and have a sense of being a part of the community. They have large open kitchens, displays of hanging vegetables and their planks. Menus and design take into account local ingredients and culture. The walls are scribbled with drawings and paintings giving the place a casual feel.
The design of Jamie’s Italian takes design cues from the warmth and vibrancy of India yet maintains links to the Jamie’s Italian family throughout the world. A bespoke light fitting designed by Stiff + Trevillion makes a striking focal point as you enter the restaurant, made from many thousands of traditional bracelets found in markets across India. This project was a collaboration between Stiff & Trevillion, Studio Lotus and the team from Jamie Oliver.
