The River Restaurant at the Savoy

Gordon Ramsay's restaurant revolution continues with The Rivers Restaurant at the Savoy the next eaterie to receive his culinary insights. Peter Gray reports.

Gordon Ramsey is set to work his magic on yet another London restaurant with the acclaimed chef turning his attention to the reopening of the River Restaurant at the Savoy.

The venue will bring the number of Ramsey restaurants at The Savoy to two with the scot already managing the hotel’s other destination eaterie, The Savoy Grill.

Ramsey has drafted in the renowned design team Russell Sage Design Studios to transform the interiors of the venue with the team previously having worked on The Goring Hotel Bar & Lounge as well as the interior of Ramsey’s Union Street Cafe.

Chef Matt Worswick will head up the kitchen team at the River Restaurant after performing a similar role at The Savoy Grill. Worswick has a wealth of experience in the restaurant industry having worked at The Latymer, The Shanghai Edition hotel and The Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham.

Worswick will preside over a seafood focused offering with dishes including whole baked turbot, tandoori monkfish curry and sea bass ceviche with blood orange and fennel. And since its The Savoy expect plenty of caviar and oysters to go with it.

Ramsay, who has seen a spate of new restaurants open in London in the last six months, seems pretty pleased with his latest venture, saying recently: “I’m really looking forward to welcoming our guests to the new restaurant in the coming weeks… I absolutely love The Savoy. Eighteen years ago, it was a dream come true to take over the Savoy Grill, so to be trusted with a second restaurant in the heart of this incredible location, is an absolute honour.”
