Gordon Ramsay to open second restaurant at The Savoy

Gordon Ramsay is set to launch as second site at The Savoy next month, a seafood restaurant named The River.

The River will join The Savoy Grill and will feature the best shellfish and seafood the UK has to offer.

Led by executive chef Matt Worswick, diners can enjoy fresh Oysters, caviar and seabass ceviche with blood orange & fennel, which will be served at the centre-piece raw bar. Also on the menu, a delicately spiced Tandoori monkfish curry, Swordfish schnitzel, and Whole baked Cornish turbot.

Ramsay said, 'I absolutely love the Savoy. I never tire of walking across the historic Strand forecourt, through the revolving doors and into the stunning hotel lobby. Eighteen years ago, it was a dream come true to take over the Savoy Grill, so to be trusted with a second restaurant in the heart of this incredible location is an absolute honour.

'The UK has some of the finest shellfish and seafood in the word and I'm delighted we are going to showcase this amazing produce and support the hard-working providers too. The team are raring to go and I'm really look forward to welcoming our guests to the new restaurant in the coming weeks.'

Managing director of the Savoy, Franck Arnold added, 'We're really excited to play host to the next outpost in Gordon Ramsay's collection of spectacular restaurants and to extend our collaboration with him. I have no doubt that the River restaurant will become a destination for lovers of great food the world over and a welcome addition to our culinary choices for our guests.

'The design is beautiful and having enjoyed tasting the menus to come, I know the dining will be quite delicious! Gordon is the most celebrated chef of his generation and leads a wonderfully talented team, just as revolutionary chef Auguste Escoffier did back in his time at the Savoy.

'This next step in our future reflects our past and our ever-present desire to innovate and work with the best of the best. We can't wait for it to open.'

The Gordon Ramsay Group currently operates of 24 UK restaurants and 17 international sites, and will be expanded further with the launch of Street Burger and Street Pizza outlets across the country.
