Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is to be offered a restaurant at the Trianon Palace & Spa Hotel outside Versailles, in France. The palatial hotel has been bought for an estimated Eu150m (£101m) by private equity group Blackstone, which has already backed several Ramsay restaurants including his latest venture in New York. Blackstone will spend £16m renovating the Trianon Palace. The Independent on Sunday 10/12/06 (Business) page 1
