Status: Officially opened yesterday at 5 p.m., grand opening May 11
Yesterday, Gordon Ramsay Steak officially started serving with a cavalcade of hostesses in front making it seem impossible to get in. But get in you could through the Chunnel that transports guests from Paris Las Vegas to the very British restaurant.
Inside, the bar was serving up cocktails and wines could be summoned from an iPad. The dining room to the right was buzzing with diners who sat at the serpentine booths that snake in front of the open kitchen. Above, the red neon sculpture representing Gordon Ramsay’s hand movements as he cooks lite up the ceiling below a massive Union Jack.
On the second floor, diners could look down on the activities below.
Executive chef Kevin Hee, who trained under Ramsay, is cooking Ramsay’s interpretation of traditional American steakhouse dishes. Starters include dishes from sea or from land. Butter-poached Maine lobster, fried oysters and smoked beef tartare with Guinness-infused mustard seeds are just some of the choices. On the entree side of the menu, look for Wagyu beef, 28-day dry-aged steaks, veal, Kurobuta double pork chop and seafood.
Ramsay includes some of the dishes that made his London restaurants famous on the menu such as fish and chips from The Narrow and pork belly with candied kumquat and braised Swiss chard from Bread Street Kitchen.
On Friday and Saturday for the grand opening, Ramsay plans to be at the restaurant.
Stay tuned: photos of the interior coming later today.
