The Savoy Grill May Be Gordon Ramsay’s Saving Grace

Gordon Ramsay may have taken a few beatings over the past couple of months, but his nasty rep and legal debacles haven’t been passed to the recently renovated Savoy Grill in London. I’m sure we all expected the Savoy Grill to follow in the footsteps of his most recent restaurant, Petrus, which fell to some very harsh reviews. Fortunately for the unlucky Ramsay, this wasn’t the case.

The result of a £220 million renovation has put the Savoy back on the map, being referred to by critics as “grand”, “elegant” and “glamorous”. One even compared the Savoy Grill to the “well-tuned purr of a vintage Rolls-Royce”. The Savoy menu, made up of modern dishes with classic British & French influences, like Baked Hereford Snails, Glazed Native Lobster Thermidor, Roe Deer Venison Chop, and Braised English Hare, has been positively received by critics. I’m sure Ramsay is taking a few deeps breaths of relief.

And while the majority believes Ramsay has redefined the word “schmuck”, even schmucks deserve a break. Let’s just hope this win doesn’t go to his nasty little head and further inflate his big, fat ego.
