Internationally celebrated chef, restaurateur, and television personality Gordon Ramsay recently announced a partnership with Caesars Entertainment to open his first restaurant in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the iconic center-Boardwalk casino resort of Caesars. Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill will offer guests a sophisticated environment with a bit of ‘Garden State’ flair when it debuts in early 2015.
Michelin Star Chef Gordon Ramsay, known not only for his superior cuisine, but also his popular television personality on the FOX Network programs Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, Kitchen Nightmares, MasterChef Jr and Hotel Hell, emerged on the Las Vegas culinary scene with rave reviews at the recently opened Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas, and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood. Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars in Atlantic City will provide fans in the Northeast an outlet to enjoy the chef’s award-winning skills in a lively and approachable English pub-style setting, offering the finest casual food utilizing the freshest ingredients.
“We’re really excited after such a great success in Vegas to be expanding to Atlantic City. We have a tremendous team, and it’s been a terrific partnership with Caesars,” said Gordon Ramsay.
The menu at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City will be comprised of items consistent with British pub fare. Classic British favorites such as, bangers and mash, fish and chips and roasted chicken, as well as some of Ramsay’s favorites like London broil prepared on a wood-burning grill, will all be part of a rustic menu that will change seasonally. Paying homage to a true pub, the new restaurant will feature a wide selection of craft and microbrews from around the world, offering beer enthusiasts more than 30 beers on tap.
“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. “Guests and fans can expect the menu at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill to feature some of Chef Ramsay’s most well-known English Pub-style comfort foods while also taking advantage of the region’s natural resources and local farms,” added Ortzman.
EDG Interior Architecture + Design will create 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 of the space will feature a striking bar with an array of beer taps on display and the backdrop inspired by traditional London red telephone booths. Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill will take advantage of its location with a patio area extending onto the casino floor where guests can be in the middle of the action. Kegs will serve as a major part of both the dining experience and the design, while pop culture relics from both England and the United States will fill the walls. The 250-seat restaurant will include 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.
I can’t tell you how excited I am about this news, as I’m a HUGE Gordon Ramsay fan. I’ve eaten at a number of his restaurants in Las Vegas, and the food is just amazing. So rest assured, I’ll be checking out Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill when it opens in the spring, and I’ll be back with a full review afterwards!
