Neighbouring maze has gone, replaced by Lucky Cat, but Gordon Ramsay’s hotel grill in Mayfair continues to plough on for the time being. Feedback is negligible compared with its heyday, but its posh grills inspired fewer disappointments this year. It also has a Chelsea spin-off on the site where the f-word chef first made his name, when it was called Aubergine (long RIP), and another on Chelsea’s Royal Hospital Road (near the GR mothership): reports similarly are few, with a verdict of tolerable but mixed.
The decor can seem “dreary” – a complaint that has dogged this Chelsea site ever since its heady days as ‘Aubergine’ (long RIP) – but this three-year-old spin-off from Gordon Ramsay’s Mayfair grill puts in a better showing than the original: “dreamy burgers” and “outstanding beef” both win praise (if, as at the original, on fairly limited feedback).
The most eloquent comment on Gordon Ramsay’s two-year-old in the Chelsea street where he made his name is how little feedback is received. Have people finally lost interest in him? It doesn’t help that of the few reporters who did care to opine, the majority were unimpressed: “dreadful service…”, “what a disappointment… won’t be returning”.
Surprisingly little feedback on Gordon Ramsay’s year-old offshoot of his maze brand on the chichi Chelsea sidestreet where he first won renown – such as there is praises its “sophisticated interior and immaculately treated meat with oodles of flavour”.
