Television chef Gordon Ramsay, known for his less-than-friendly kitchen demeanour, already has a whole fleet of restaurants in the capital, including three Michelin starred Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea, Bread Street Kitchen in St Paul’s and pan-Asian restaurant Lucky Cat, which is found in Mayfair.
Gordon Ramsay Burger is a new concept from the chef though, at least in the UK, with this sub-brand of Gordon’s restaurant empire having previously only existed in Las Vegas. Gordon Ramsay Burger may have a simple, fuss-free name, but it’s surroundings are anything but, with the restaurant taking up residence inside of legendary high-end department store Harrods. As you would expect, the main draw on the menu here is a selection of gourmet burgers, crowned with often decadent toppings, although diners can also opt for pimped-up hot dogs if they wish, washed down with thick, sugary milkshakes.
The burger menu in Vegas features a number of hearty options and we expect the London menu to be very similar, although there are likely to be a few items exclusive to the Harrods location. If you find yourself craving a burger, you might be able to tuck into the likes of the Farmhouse (Dubliner cheese, bacon, fried egg) or perhaps the ultra indulgent Truffle Burger, which features tremor cheese, bacon, truffle butter, frisée, pickled shallot, a fried egg and truffle aïoli. You'll also find a Wagyu burger on the menu costing an eye-watering £80. Naturally, guests can also bulk out their meal with a number of sides, including the typical burger accompaniment of fries.
Long-standing Harrods is already home to a number of interesting dining options, thanks to its revamped Dining Hall (launched in the summer of 2019) which offers six restaurants to choose from: a traditional grill, a pasta bar, a sushi bar, a fish bar, a caviar house and prunier, and Kama, an Indian restaurant headed up by well-regarded chef Vineet Bhatia.
