Restaurant 1890 by Gordon Ramsay will be opening at The Savoy, London, on 23rd February, 2022. 1890 marks the year that Georges Auguste Escoffier joined The Savoy and began his outstanding contribution to global culinary standards. Restaurant 1890 by Gordon Ramsay pays homage to the culinary titan, whilst offering highly exclusive, contemporary fine dining and providing guests with a true sense of delight.
Restaurant 1890 offers an intimate and elevated experience, opening for dinner only and seating 26 guests. Gordon Ramsay says that Restaurant 1890; “Creates a blend between unparalleled service, culinary creativity and exquisite wines.
“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.”
James Sharp has most recently been cooking as Senior Sous Chef at Michelin-starred Pétrus by Gordon Ramsay, having joined the Group in 2015 at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Royal Hospital Road.
Overlooking the iconic Savoy Hotel entrance, the restaurant has been designed by Russell Sage Studios in glowing golds, reflecting the art deco architectural signature of The Savoy.
With the finest ingredients sourced from all corners of the world including top British luxury foods suppliers and a vintage wine list to match, Restaurant 1890 perfectly complements the existing Gordon Ramsay restaurants at The Savoy, including the glorious Savoy Grill, which was taken over by Gordon Ramsay in 2003, and the recently opened River Restaurant, offering one of the finest fish and seafood menus in London.
Chef James Sharp describes 1890 as offering an exclusive kitchen table experience, but in a restaurant setting: “It’s always been a dream of mine to run an intimate tasting menu restaurant in such a beautiful location.”
