GORDON RAMSAY PUB & GRILL OPENS IN ATLANTIC CITY
|Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill Atlantic City|
Gordon Ramsay and Caesars Entertainment announced that Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill opened at Caesars Atlantic City, yesterday. The 250-seat restaurant will offer an authentic English pub experience on the East Coast, following the enormous success of his Pub & Grill at Caesars Las Vegas. Reservations, which are highly recommended, can be made online at opentable.com or by calling the Pub directly at (609) 343-2600.
“We’re really excited about the opening after such a great success in Vegas. We have an amazing team and partnership with Caesars,” said Gordon Ramsay, and we’re looking forward to bringing it to the East Coast.
Veteran gourmet chef and long-time Atlantic City culinarian George Galati will oversee all kitchen operations for the outlet. Best known for his co-starring role alongside Chef Robert Irvine in Dinner: Impossible on the Food Network, Galati adds nearly 30 years of gourmet experience to an already well-equipped culinary staff.
Hell’s Kitchen Season 13 winner, Chef La Tasha McCutchen has been tapped as head restaurant chef, under Chef George. A fan-favorite throughout Season 13, Chef LaTasha showed signs of her skill and culinary talents very early on, winning Chef Ramsay’s praise at crucial times. “I feel like I opened the doors to my future. I trusted in myself, I believed in myself and I know now that I have what it takes to be a true leader in this industry,” said McCutchen on winning the competition.
The menu at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars features items consistent with British pub fare. Classic British favorites such as, bangers and mash and yorkshire rib roast, as well as some of Ramsay’s favorites like the beef wellington and wood-grilled lobster tail prepared on an oak-fired grill, will all be part of a rustic menu that will change seasonally. Paying homage to a true English pub, Chef Ramsay made sure a steak & ale pie, sticky toffee pudding and of course, the ale-battered fish & chips were included on his menu in Atlantic City.
Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill takes advantage of its location in the main Caesars hotel lobby with a patio area extending onto the casino floor where guests can be in the middle of the action. Pop culture relics from both England and the United States will fill the walls of the 250-seat restaurant, with an impressive bar, a vintage-style lounge, a series of casual dining rooms and a private dining room, giving guests a variety of culinary experiences to fit any mood. Twenty-four HD televisions have been strategically placed around the Pub and are set to showcase sporting events from across the world such as Premiere League matches, Pay Per View events and many of the MLB, NBA, NCAA, NFL, NHL and NASCAR events throughout the year.
EDG Interior Architecture + Design has created a space that is welcoming, high-energy and comfortable, utilizing distressed woods with cheeky references to historic and iconic events throughout the space. The centerpiece features a striking bar with an array of beer taps on display and the backdrop inspired by traditional London red telephone booths.
Along the length of the bar are more than 26 beers served up on tap, featuring well-known and craft brewers such as Wells & Young’s, Magners Original, Fuller’s, and local brewers such as Cape May Brewing Co. An additional 22 bottled beers from around the world and around the greater Atlantic City region will always be stocked, as well as 16 widget cans and other can beer options. A unique selection of beers on tap will be made available for take home in custom 64-ounce growlers.
“With the announcement of Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars, Atlantic City continues to elevate itself as a culinary destination, one that features big television personalities, celebrity chefs, and now a Michelin-rated chef,” said Kevin Ortzman, President of Caesars and Bally’s Atlantic City. “Chef Ramsay is one of the world’s most highly-regarded chefs as evidenced by his multiple culinary accolades and we are honored to partner with him at Caesars,” continued Mr. Ortzman.
Chef Ramsay’s partnership with Caesars Entertainment now spans from coast-to-coast with Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars in Atlantic City and the highly successful openings in Las Vegas with Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace, Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and the recently announced Gordon Ramsay’s Fish & Chips slated to open at The Linq in the spring of 2015.
About Gordon Ramsay
Scottish by birth, Gordon Ramsay was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in football, he went back to college to complete a course in hotel management. His dedication and natural talent led him to train with some of the world’s leading chefs, such as Albert Roux and Marco Pierre White in London, and Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon in France.
In 1993 Ramsay became chef of Aubergine in London, which within three years, was awarded two Michelin stars. In 1998, at the age of 31, Ramsay set up his first wholly owned and namesake restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, which quickly received the most prestigious accolade in the culinary world – three Michelin stars. Today, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay is London’s longest-running restaurant to hold this award, and Ramsay is one of only four chefs in the UK to maintain three stars.
Now internationally renowned, multi-Michelin-starred Ramsay has opened a string of successful restaurants across the globe, from Italy to the United States. The Gordon Ramsay Group continues to grow with two ventures in Doha, Qatar opened in 2012; a total of three restaurants in Las Vegas with Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas, Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill at Caesars Palace and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino; three additional restaurants in London, Union Street Cafe,London House and most recently Heddon Street Kitchen which opened in November 2014 and Bread Street Kitchen in Hong Kong.
Ramsay received an OBE (Order of the British Empire awarded by Queen Elizabeth II) in 2006 for services to the industry. Ramsay has also become a star of the small screen both in the US and internationally, with four top-rated FOX shows that air in more than 200 countries worldwide such as HELL’S KITCHEN, MASTERCHEF , MASTERCHEF JR., and HOTEL HELL as well as UK shows: GORDON BEHIND BARS, ULTIMATE COOKERY COURSE, GORDON’S GREAT ESCAPES and GORDON RAMSAY: SHARK BAIT. He is also a published author of a number of books, many of which have become bestsellers around the world, most notably his autobiography, Roasting in Hell’s Kitchen.
