Jamie Oliver is looking at opening a second branch of his Italian restaurant in Dublin city centre, the Irish Times reports. 

Jamie's Italian in Dundrum was launched by Gerard Fitzpatrick back in 2012 and now the team behind it are eyeing a location with greater 'footfall' for the new spot with the aim of opening in the next six months.

Mr. Fitzpatrick said:

“It’s location, location, location. You really need to be in the middle of the strongest footfall possible.

“Looking for new premises is very difficult. We live in a very small city, and most restaurants want at least 100 seats, which is not easy to come by.

"Rent increases also make it “really tough at the moment."
