ATLANTIC CITY, NJ—Gordon Ramsay and Caesars Entertainment have opened Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City.
The 250-seat restaurant will offer an authentic English pub experience on the East Coast, according to the company, following the success of his Pub & Grill at Caesars Las Vegas.
“We’re really excited about the opening after such a great success in Vegas. We have an amazing team and partnership with Caesars,” said Ramsay. “We’re looking forward to bringing it to the East Coast.”
Veteran gourmet chef and long-time Atlantic City culinarian George Galati will oversee all kitchen operations for the outlet. Best known for his co-starring role alongside Chef Robert Irvine on Dinner: Impossible on the Food Network, Galati adds nearly 30 years of gourmet experience to an already well-equipped culinary staff.
Hell’s Kitchen Season 13 winner Chef La Tasha McCutchen has been tapped as head restaurant chef. “I feel like I opened the doors to my future. I trusted in myself, I believed in myself and I know now that I have what it takes to be a true leader in this industry,” said McCutchen on winning the competition.
The menu at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars features British pub fare. Classic British favorites such as bangers and mash and yorkshire rib roast, as well as some of Ramsay’s favorites like the beef wellington and wood-grilled lobster tail prepared on an oak-fired grill, will all be part of a rustic menu that will change seasonally. Paying homage to a true English pub, Chef Ramsay made sure a steak & ale pie, sticky toffee pudding and ale-battered fish & chips were included on his menu in Atlantic City.
Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill takes advantage of its location in the main Caesars hotel lobby with a patio area extending onto the casino floor where guests can be in the middle of the action. Pop culture relics from both England and the U.S. will fill the walls of the 250-seat restaurant, with a bar, a vintage-style lounge, a series of casual dining rooms and a private dining room.
EDG Interior Architecture + Design has created the space, utilizing distressed woods with references to historic and iconic events. The centerpiece features a bar with an array of beer taps on display and the backdrop inspired by traditional London red telephone booths.
