Gordo’s high five

Gordon Ramsay is to open what is billed as his biggest investment yet: a five-restaurant complex at the top of London’s newest skyscraper, including the first spin-off from his flagship in Chelsea’s Royal Hospital Road, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.

The restaurants are scheduled to open next year in the City of London’s 22 Bishopsgate tower, which was completed after years of delay in 2020 and is the capital’s second tallest building after the Shard at 278 metres.

Gordon said: “This is more than just a new opening, it’s a significant milestone for our business. We’re not only launching the highest culinary experiences in London, but also creating a vibrant culinary hub at the incredible 22 Bishopsgate.” 

The Ramsay complex will include a 14-seat chef’s table run by the Restaurant Gordon Ramsay team; a branch of his Bread Street Kitchen restaurants and bars; and a branch of his Asian-inspired Lucky Cat brand, with a terrace bar and a late licence until 3am – with no neighbours to annoy at that altitude. The chef’s table and Lucky Cat will be situated on the 60th floor, and are staking a claim to be the highest restaurants in London.

There will also be a cookery school, the Gordon Ramsay Academy, which will offer lessons in “everything from pasta-making to mixology“.
