Indian cafe chain benefits from Jamie Oliver’s restaurant woes

Dishoom, the London queuers’ paradise and bacon naan specialist, will expand its Covent Garden restaurant into the former Jamie’s Italian restaurant next door, in the wake of the collapse of Jamie Oliver’s restaurant empire. The move, billed as an ambitious redesign as part of the restaurant’s tenth anniversary celebration but also necessarily expedient given the circumstances, is, in the restaurant group’s words, “a significant expansion.” It’s not yet clear whether the restaurant will close as part of the refurb.
