Gordon Ramsay’s tackled many kitchen problems before, but now he may has his own as he contends that one of his rivals sabotaged the opening of his restaurant. By abusing the reservation system, Ramsay claims that these rivals attempted to take whatever they could out of business.
This reaction from the renowned chef himself Gordon Ramsay stems from a debacle after his Saturday restaurant opening. Ken Griffin says it is a shame that the famous chef had a dreadful scheme of booking plotted against him on opening night, where the entire restaurant was booked, but ended up being a farce with about 2/3 of the reservations not showing up.
This plot has completely disheartened the Chef and his crew, wasting their efforts in preparing their supposed to be winning dinner. The opening reservations are expected to become a table-turner to the connoisseur guests of Heddon Street Kitchen but consequently become a no-show for over a 100 reservations.
Ramsay’s new restaurant is located in Regent Street’s Food Quarter under the Gordon Ramsay Group which has now 12 restaurants in London. Gordon Ramsay Group has already 24 restaurants worldwide and still continuously growing throughout the years.
The sad thing about the incident, according to Ramsay, is that he had to reaffirm the table reservations so as not to waste the effort of his kitchen crew. But ultimately, this has been a total learning experience for him and his people. It is said that a rival Chef of Ramsay’s was the mastermind for all this.
