Step Inside Lucky Cat By Gordon Ramsay – The New Asian Eating House
Surround yourself with good fortune as you step inside Gordon Ramsay’s latest opening of Lucky Cat in London’s Grosvenor Square, where golden maneki-nekos, the popular Japanese lucky talisman depicting a cat welcoming with an upright paw, line the wall of the bar into the restaurant.
Launched in late June 2019, it sees Gordon Ramsay Restaurants embark on a new venture creating an Asian Eating House and vibrant late-night lounge, inspired by the drinking dens of 1930s Tokyo and the Far East, but set in the heart of thriving Mayfair.
The restaurant replaces the much-loved Gordon Ramsay restaurant, maze (yes it’s lower case!), which had been at the forefront of the London restaurant scene for the last 14 years.
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. Prior, Ben was Executive Chef at maze, and has extensive experience in the realm of Asian cuisine whilst at both Zuma and Sexy Fish.
The new restaurant highlights Gordon Ramsay Restaurants’ continued innovation and creativity with exquisite Asian cuisine.
