Award-winning Chef Gordon Ramsay Leads British Invasion of the East Coast with the opening of Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill in Atlantic City, NJ
Gordon Ramsay and Caesars Entertainment are pleased to announce that Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill is now open at Caesars Atlantic City. The 250-seat restaurant will offer an authentic English pub experience on the East Coast, following the enormous success of his Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. Reservations, which are highly recommended, can be made online at opentable.com.
“We’re really excited about the opening after such a great success in Vegas. We have an amazing team and partnership with Caesars,” said Gordon Ramsay, “and 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 in 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, under Chef George. A fan-favourite throughout Season 13, Chef LaTasha showed signs of her skill and culinary talents very early on, winning Chef Ramsay’s praise at crucial times. “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 items consistent with British pub fare. Classic British favourites such as, bangers and mash and yorkshire rib roast, as well as some of Ramsay’s favourites 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 of course, the 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 United States will fill the walls of the 250-seat restaurant, with 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. Twenty-four HD televisions have been strategically placed around the Pub and are set to showcase sporting events from across the world such as Premiere League matches, Pay Per View events and many of the MLB, NBA, NCAA, NFL, NHL and NASCAR events throughout the year.
EDG Interior Architecture + Design has created a space that is welcoming, high-energy and comfortable, utilising distressed woods with cheeky references to historic and iconic events throughout the space. The centrepiece features a striking bar with an array of beer taps on display and the backdrop inspired by traditional London red telephone booths.
Along the length of the bar are more than 26 beers served up on tap, featuring well-known and craft brewers such as Wells & Young’s, Magners Original, Fuller’s, and local brewers such as Cape May Brewing Co. An additional 22 bottled beers from around the world and around the greater Atlantic City region will always be stocked, as well as 16 widget cans and other can beer options. A unique selection of beers on tap will be made available for take home in custom 64-ounce growlers.
“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 honoured to partner with him at Caesars,” continued Mr. Ortzman.
