Gordon Ramsay Restaurants is set to open its highly anticipated new restaurant, Lucky Cat by Gordon Ramsay in London’s Grosvenor Square, on 24 June.
The new venture replaces the much-loved Gordon Ramsay restaurant, Maze, which closed on 2 February 2019 after 14 years at the forefront of the London restaurant scene.
Lucky Cat will be an Asian Eating House and vibrant late-night lounge, inspired by the drinking dens of 1930s Tokyo and the Far East.
Working closely alongside mentor Gordon Ramsay is executive chef Ben Orpwood, who has brought Ramsay’s vision to life through the creation of the inventive menu. Set to lead the charge of talented chefs at Lucky Cat, Orpwood has held the position of Executive Chef at maze since joining Gordon Ramsay Restaurants in January 2018.
Orpwood’s extensive experience in the realm of Asian cuisine includes his time as Executive Chef at Asian restaurant and bar, Sexy Fish, in addition to a six-year stint at Japanese concept Zuma.
Dishes include Mushroom and truffle chawanmushi with Oscietra caviar (pictured), Razor clam sashimi, wasabi leaf, green apple, and Seared Chu toro, house soy, wakkame oil.
Gordon Ramsay said, ‘I can’t wait to open the doors at Lucky Cat and bring a new flavour of Asian food and culture to Mayfair.
'I can honestly say there will not be a bad seat in the house – every table will have a unique view and each guest will come away having experienced something sensational –whether it be the phenomenal menu, the amazing service or the stunning look and feel.maze leaves large shoes for us to fill, but I have no doubt Lucky Cat will more than step up to the plate.’
