Whether you love them or hate them, celebrity chefs are hard to avoid these days, and there is no denying that each and every one of us would love to take a bite out of some of those dishes featured on our screens. Luckily, this is actually possible, as the majority of celebrity chefs have their own restaurants where they serve up their signature dishes. While there may be plenty of restaurants to choose from, here at OROGOLD we most certainly have our favorites, so read on to discover some of the best celebrity chef restaurants around the world.
Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, London, UK
It goes without saying that Gordon Ramsay needs no introduction, and is probably one of the most well-known celebrity chefs in the world. As a chef that is currently holding 14 Michelin stars, you can be sure that a meal at one of Ramsay’s restaurants will be truly exquisite. Although Ramsay has restaurants all over the world, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, located in London, is OROGOLD’s favorite. In addition to their frequently evolving menus, the restaurant also offers up a few Masterclasses each year, where customers will be taught how to create a three-course meal from the signature recipes used by the restaurant.
CraftSteak, Las Vegas, US
Those of you who watch Top Chef or Best New Restaurant will immediately recognize American celebrity chef Tom Colicchio as the head judge on the show. With five James Beard Foundation Awards under his belt for his culinary accomplishments, it is no surprise that his restaurants around the US are a great success. While we would never turn down a meal at any of Colicchio’s establishments, OROGOLD’s favorite restaurant of his is CraftSteak. Located inside the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, this Las Vegas joint makes the most of high quality, fresh ingredients, treating each one of them with the utmost respect. For those of you planning to pay it a visit, OROGOLD would highly recommend the chef, or seasonal, tasting menu.
The Fat Duck, Berkshire, UK
Heston Blumenthal, a British celebrity chef, is a pioneer in the industry when it comes to multi-sensory cooking and food pairing. His restaurant in Berkshire, The Fat Duck, is one of just four restaurants in the UK to hold three Michelin stars, and is frequently mentioned in many ‘World’s Best Restaurant’ lists. The restaurant is famous for its 14-course tasting menu featuring highly conceptual dishes. Some of OROGOLD’s favorites are the Mock Turtle Soup, which is inspired by Alice in Wonderland and involves a fob watch being dissolved in a teacup using beef stock ‘tea’, as well as Blumenthal’s famous egg and bacon ice cream.
Although you may end up paying more for a meal at a restaurant owned by a celebrity chef, it is usually well worth the money, as you will be treated to a culinary experience like no other. From the conceptual dishes designed to bring back childhood memories that are served up at The Fat Duck, to beef textures being described like fine wines at Tom Colicchio’s CraftSteak, OROGOLD’s favorite celebrity chef restaurants will never fail to provide you with an exquisite meal.
