Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay opened his first Los Angeles restaurant, Gordon Ramsay at the London West Hollywood, last night.
England football star David Beckham was among the stars who turned out for the official opening party.
Ramsay's team at the upmarket hotel is led by chef de cuisine Andy Cook, a 31-year from Birmingham, England, who is a veteran of Gordon Ramsay at the Conrad Tokyo.
Josh Emett, chef de cuisine of Gordon Ramsay at the London New York, who has been with Ramsay since 2000, will oversee the LA restaurant from New York.
The two are joined by pastry chef Carl Bertka, six sous chefs and three sushi chefs, with a total kitchen staff of 50.
