TV chef Gordon Ramsey is set to open his third restaurant in one of London’s most famous hotels.
His new restaurant at The Savoy Hotel in Westminster will start welcoming its first diners from February 23, with room for only 26 guests at a time.
The announcement of the master chef’s new restaurant – called 1890 – comes just months after Gordon opened his second restaurant in the hotel, the River Restaurant, last October.

1890’s name pays tribute to historic French chef Auguste Escoffier, who joined The Savoy that year and then went on to revolutionise the restaurant scene in London over the course of his eight years at the hotel.
Leading the restaurant as the executive head chef will be James Sharp, who previously worked for Gordon as his senior sous at his Belgravia-based restaurant, Petrus.
The restaurant will serve a tasting menu that will be priced at £110 per head.
Dinner will also come with paired wines.

Speaking to The Evening Standard, Gordon said: “The tasting menu is seasonal modern French with European influences, prepared with great flair under the very talented executive head chef James Sharp and our hand-picked team.
“It’s the third gastronomic jewel operated by our restaurant group at The Savoy and we’re incredibly excited to offer this new experience.”
Adding that he is “really happy” to have James at the helm, Gordon said his menu will include signature dishes such as “vol-au-vent lobster with a fragrant herb purée; caviar bisque; the Veronique garnish with the beautiful turbot and Champagne velouté and the stunning sauce Bordelaise accompanying the beef short rib – dishes that are, I hope, befitting our reference to the great M. Escoffier.”
Working with James will be Sarah Rhone, who joins the team as a restaurant manager, and Emanuel Pesqueira who will work as head sommelier.
