Gordon Ramsay to take Maze to Australia

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is to bring restaurant concept Maze to Australia with an opening at the Crown Casino in Melbourne.

Maze, which already has outlets in London, Prague and New York, will launch at Crown's third hotel in February 2010.

Crown chief executive David Courtney said the group was "thrilled" to announce the opening.

"Ramsay and Maze fit extremely well within the positioning of our new hotel as Maze has become renowned for being stylish, contemporary and providing an innovative food offer," he said.

"Bringing Gordon Ramsay and Maze to Melbourne further cements our strategy of bringing some of the world's best dining experiences to Crown and Melbourne."

Ramsay added: "This is our first step in bringing the Gordon Ramsay brand to Australia and this is an exciting and challenging opportunity."

Gordon Ramsay entered the Australian public's consciousness earlier this year with his TV programme Kitchen Nightmares. The series, which proved hugely popular, made headlines in the country after the chef's notorious foul-mouthed antics angered MPs.

The chef announced last month that he is to open a restaurant at London's iconic Hippodrome, which is being redeveloped into a casino set to open in 2010.
