Gordon Ramsay and Marco Pierre White close two overseas restaurants

The Gordon Ramsay restaurant on the 28th floor of the Conrad Tokyo shut its doors on 1 June, after eight years in the Japanese capital. After running the Best of Gordon Ramsay menu during its final fortnight, the sapce is now undergoing a refurbishment and will re-open as the Collage restaurant next month.

A spokesperson for the Gordon Ramsay Group said: "We can confirm that after eight fantastic years we have taken the decision to end our collaboration with Conrad Tokyo. It has been a pleasure working with the team and we wish them the best of luck for the future and with the new restaurant.

"The Gordon Ramsay Group continues to go from strength to strength and we are excited about two new UK openings later this year as well as international opportunities."

Gordon Ramsay currently operates 25 restaurants across the UK and overseas.

Meanwhile, White's Titanic Dubai - the revival of a concept which once operated in London - has closed just one year after opening.

Dubbed as one of the city's hottest openings of 2012, the Titanic Dubai served a selection of grill dishes and White classic dishes.

In a statement White said the split was amicable. "Since I launched Titanic with MeliÁ¡ Dubai the hotel has evolved and it became necessary to adapt. It was a strategic decision on both sides and we part amicably."

White's next opening in the United Arab Emirates will be the Marco Pierre White Grill at the Conrad Hotel, Dubai, which is due to be launched in the late summer. He also operates Wheeler's and Frankie's, also in Dubai; while in Abu Dhabi he operates a Frankie's restaurant and the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse at the Fairmont Abu Dhabi.
