Gordon Ramsay announces new site, saying ‘we have to get this economy kickstarted'
Gordon Ramsay has announced plans to open a new Street Pizza site in London's Southwark, as he prepares for the industry to "bounce back" from Covid-19.
Announcing a launch date of 5 November on social media, the celebrity chef said: "You may think it's crazy opening a restaurant across these torrid times, but we are going to bounce back and we have to get this economy kickstarted and back to where it was."
The Southwark opening will be the chef's third Street Pizza site in the capital, joining outlets in Camden and St Paul's. The opening has been planned for 12 months.
Street Pizza will specialise in bottomless pizza and cocktails and has been designed to showcase graffiti-style artwork.
Earlier this month Ramsay announced he would open the UK's first Gordon Ramsay Burger site at Harrods in London's Knightsbridge this year.
