He owns and/or operates restaurants across Europe, North America, and Asia. In 1997, Ramsay launched his first restaurant business, Gordon Ramsay Restaurants. Since taking over as head chef at Aubergine in 1993, he has owned and operated a number of restaurants. He owned a quarter of the restaurant where he received his first two Michelin stars. Following the firing of protégé Marcus Wareing from sibling restaurant L’Oranger, Ramsay organized a staff walkout from both restaurants and then took them to open Restaurant Gordon Ramsay on Royal Hospital Road in London. His self-titled restaurant became his first and only three Michelin-starred establishment.
Ramsay has a number of protégés working in his restaurants. Angela Hartnett and Jason Atherton both worked at Verre before moving on to The Connaught and Maze in London. Hartnett bought Murano from Ramsay in 2010 after Atherton left to launch his own restaurant. Wareing was named head chef of the London restaurant Pétrus. It went on to win two Michelin stars, but the two chefs fell out in 2008 when Wareing kept the restaurant and the stars while Ramsay got the name. The restaurant was renamed Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley, and the new Pétrus by Gordon Ramsy debuted in 2010.

Burger (formerly spelt BurGR, it was redesigned in 2017) opened in Las Vegas in December 2012. Other locations of the gourmet hamburger restaurant would open later[when?] in Chicago, Boston, Seoul, and in London’s Harrods Department Store. On December 3, 2020, Ramsay’s first Street Burger opened in London’s St. Paul’s neighborhood. Other Street Burger outlets followed in London, Woking, Reading, and the United States, and were designed to be a more relaxed experience than the gourmet hamburger eating offered at the recently founded Gordon Ramsy Burgers brand in the United States.
In 2001, Ramsay featured on the third season of Faking It, assisting a burger flipper named Ed Devlin in learning the craft. This show was nominated for a BAFTA in 2001 for “Best Factual TV Moment.”

Gordon Ramsay Michelin stars
Ramsay’s reputation is predicated on his pursuit of culinary perfection, which has resulted in him three Michelin stars. Marco Pierre White, his mentor, stated that he is quite competitive. The chef has become famed for his violent temper and use of expletives since the airing of Boiling Point, which tracked Ramsay’s quest for three Michelin stars.
Gordon Ramsay Head chef
Gordon accepted the role of head chef at the three-Michelin-starred La Tante Claire in Chelsea in 1993. Shortly after, Marco Pierre White reappeared in his life and offered him a position as head chef and a 10% stake in the Rossmore. Aubergine received its first Michelin star fourteen months later, and its second in 1997.
However, a disagreement with Ramsay’s financial partners, as well as his desire to open his own restaurant, caused him to leave the partnership in July 1998. Ramsay founded his own restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, in Chelsea in 1998, with the support of his father-in-law, Chris Hutcheson, and former Aubergine colleagues.
The most important details in this text are that Ramsay has opened restaurants outside the UK, beginning with Verre in Dubai in 2005, two restaurants in Tokyo in 2005, Ramsay at Conrad Tokyo and Cerise by Ramsay in New York City in 2006, Ramsay at Powerscourt in Ireland in 2007, Ramsay in the Western US in The London West Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles in May 2008, and Laurier Ramsay in May 2008.
Danny Lavy, the restaurant’s proprietor, said in February 2012 that the restaurant was separating itself from Ramsay, alleging a lack of involvement and understanding on Ramsay’s behalf. In 2013, the eatery closed its doors. The Good Food Guide ranked Restaurant Ramsay as the second best in the UK in 2011, after only The Fat Duck in Bray, Berkshire. Ramsay’s empire grew quickly after he opened his first restaurant.
