Gordon Ramsay Restaurants is to open an Asian-inspired restaurant called Lucky Cat – a new venture for the group – in Mayfair, this summer.
Located in Grosvenor Square, the opening will see the group embark on creating an authentic ‘Asian eating house’ and late-night lounge, inspired by the drinking dens of 1930s Tokyo and the Far East.
The restaurant’s name takes its inspiration from Asian culture where the ‘lucky cat’ is a talisman that is believed to attract good luck and fortune.
Lucky Cat will replace the Gordon Ramsay’s Maze restaurant, which closed at the weekend after 14 years in business.
Ramsay has worked alongside executive chef of Maze, Ben Orpwood, in bringing the vision to life on the menu.
Ramsay said of the new restaurant: “I can’t wait to open the doors at Lucky Cat and bring a new flavour of Asian food and culture to Mayfair.
“I can honestly say there will not be a bad seat in the house – every table will have a unique view and each guest will come away having experienced something sensational –whether it be the phenomenal menu, the amazing service or the stunning look and feel.
“Maze leaves large shoes for us to fill, but I have no doubt Lucky Cat will more than step up to the plate.”
