Big news over at The Savoy today where Gordon Ramsay is opening a second restaurant at the landmark London hotel.
The chef will be taking over The River Restaurant, in the space that's currently Kaspar's. Chef Matt Worswick, who's also the executive chef at Ramsay's other Savoy restaurant, the Savoy Grill, will be running the kitchen there too. They're also bringing in the big guns in terms of restaurant design with Russell Sage - who's worked with Gordon before on Bread Street Kitchen as well as the Savoy Grill.
It all sounds like it's being done pretty swiftly. "I’m really looking forward to welcoming our guest to the new restaurant in the coming weeks," said Ramsay, adding “I absolutely love The Savoy. Eighteen years ago, it was a dream come true to take over the Savoy Grill, so to be trusted with a second restaurant in the heart of this incredible location, is an absolute honour."
As for the menu - here's a selection of key dishes:
- Cornish crab quiche with pickled apple and chervil
- Soft shell crab burger with sriracha mayo, Asian slaw on a brioche bun
- Tandoori spiced monkfish with kachumber salad, roasted cauliflower bhaji and curry sauce
- Swordfish schnitzel with jalapeno sauce gribiche.
As you'd expect from a seafood restaurant there'll be shellfish platters, caviar with nori waffles or blinis and lots of oysters on offer too.
