Gordon Ramsay to run Bordeaux restaurant
Gordon Ramsay is to open a restaurant in the five-star Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux & Spa in Bordeaux.
He will take over the fine dining restaurant Le Pressoir d'Argent in the hotel as part of the Gordon Ramsay Group's partnership with the FIB Group (Financière Immobilière Bordelaise).
The FIB Group also owns the Waldorf Astoria Trianon Palace in Versailles where the Gordon Ramsay Group operates a two Michelin-starred restaurant.
Gordon Ramsay said: "I'm thrilled we are opening our second restaurant in France, following on from the two Michelin-starred Gordon Ramsay au Trianon in Versailles. To open a restaurant in the wine capital of France with its world-class vineyards and glorious regional produce is extremely exciting."
Michel Ohayon, chief executive of FIB and owner of the Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux & Spa added: "It is an honour to work with Gordon Ramsay Group and the new Bordeaux restaurant provides FIB in France with two gastronomic centres of excellence.
"Gordon Ramsay's arrival in Bordeaux is the cause of much excitement here."
