Gordon Ramsay Restaurants has announced the name of the new restaurant which will take over from Maze at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square.
Maze closes this weekend after 14 years of operation, and will be replaced by Lucky Cat this summer.
The new concept is described as “an authentic Asian Eating House and vibrant late-night lounge, inspired by the drinking dens of 1930s Tokyo”.
Ramsay will work alongside chef Ben Orpwood (currently Executive Chef at Maze), with the restaurant’s interiors being designed by creative studio AfroditiKrassa, which is also behind the concept of the restaurant and the brand, collaborating with Gordon to hone the look and feel of the concept.
Commenting on the news Ramsay said:
“I can’t wait to open the doors at Lucky Cat and bring a new flavour of Asian food and culture to Mayfair. I can honestly say there will not be a bad seat in the house – every table will have a unique view and each guest will come away having experienced something sensational –whether it be the phenomenal menu, the amazing service or the stunning look and feel. Maze leaves large shoes for us to fill, but I have no doubt Lucky Cat will more than step up to the plate.”
Gordon ramsay Restaurants currently operates 15 restaurants across London, as well as a further 23 international eateries in the US, France, Hong Kong and Singapore.
