Here's a video from UK trade publication Caterer and Hotelkeeper that features chef-patron Clare Smyth giving a tour of the newly redesigned three Michelin star London restaurant Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. The redesign happened earlier this year in part, Smyth told Eater, to make the restaurant "feel a little bit more like [her] own."
In the tour, Smyth highlights some of the changes that have taken place at the restaurant since its relaunch like remarkable laser-cut oak paneling in the dining room (that was made from one tree), a liquor library, and an "inspiration table." Opting not to make a chef's table because Smyth prefers to keep the kitchen private, Smyth created the inspiration table to give regulars the chance to try new dishes. Smyth also addresses the restaurant's philosophy, crediting their Michelin stars to "sheer hard work, dedication, passion, and consistency." The video ends with Smyth making a palate cleanser of cucumber sorbet. Go, watch:
