Jamie Oliver has had a change of heart and decided to open the new Jamie’s Italian on Parliament Street ahead of the Tour de France weekend.
A spokesman for Jamie’s Italian said: “We’re now going to be open for the Tour de France weekend which is incredibly exciting for us!
“The whole team are thrilled.
“We’re currently recruiting and will be holding final recruitment days on June 10, 11, 12 and 13, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.”
The restaurant will be set over two floors in the new Lateral Property development, Harrogate House on Parliament Street, just metres from the finish line on West Park.
The restaurant will also have an outdoor seating area with a 1950s style ice-cream cart and a bar area serving pizzas and cocktails.
Jamie’s new neighbour, The Pit, is also due to open on June 28.
