“We are proud to offer Jamie Oliver to Norway and Norway to Jamie Oliver. The menu is composed by Oliver himself, which is a world renowned stamp of quality – not just in Norway,” says Commercial Director at Avinor Oslo Airport, Torgeir Kjos Sørensen.
Italian coffee and freshly baked bread
The concept of Jamie’s Deli springs from the idea of gathering around the table for a hearty meal – typical of Italian culture. There will be a delicious selection to choose from – salads, antipasti, home-made pizza, tasty sandwiches and different kinds of freshly prepared meat. You can get freshly baked bread and other pastries, as well as breakfast items served with classic Italian coffee.
“We will be serving rustic dishes in a modern, yet informal environment. All dishes will be made from fresh, seasonal ingredients that are most importantly sustainable,” says managing director at Select Service Partner (SSP), Morten Solberg-Nilsen, who runs the 29 restaurants and bars scheduled to open at Norway’s main airport in 2016 and 2017.
First grand opening
Solberg-Nilsen is excited about the first grand opening of a restaurant at the new Oslo Airport, and is convinced the new addition will receive a warm welcome from travellers.
“All menu items consist of carefully selected ingredients with few additives, as well as low salt and sugar content. High quality is of great importance to us and to Jamie Oliver. We believe visitors will appreciate good craftsmanship and good food,” says Solberg-Nilsen.
Ritazza with a new look
An old acquaintance opens on the same day, right next door to Jamie’s Deli. The new neighbour is Ritazza, so more good news for coffee lovers.
“Caffè Ritazza is a modern coffee shop with a great selection of food and pastries, rooted in the traditional Italian café. This café has specialised in barista coffee in the travel market and is well-known with many travellers,” concludes Solberg-Nilsen.
Plenty of new places to eat
