Gordon Ramsay at the London NYC to close

Gordon Ramsay at the London NYC to close

Gordon Ramsay's eponymous New York City restaurant the London hotel is closing, a year after it was stripped of its two Michelin stars.

Gordon Ramsay at the London opened to acclaim in 2006, picking up the two Michelin stars in the following year's Guide to New York.

The celebrity chef sold his financial stake in the restaurant to the hotel in 2009 and according to Eater, was not involved in day-to-day operations after that.

The closure comes as a trend for New York diners to favour a less formal eating out experience.

"We're closing fully to reflect the more casual dining style preferred by the guests. They really are demanding more of a casual dining scene," Amanda Duff, a spokesperson for the London NYC, said.

A spokesperson for Gordon Ramsay added the following statement: "We are heavily involved with all our restaurants and partners around the world with the exception of the London, who unfortunately rarely co-operate or communicate with us.

"It's disappointing that they have taken this decision but we believe the dining experience they've been offering lately has not been the standard expected by us or our customers when they dine at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant.‎ As always, the door remains open for them to engage with us in a meaningful way."
