Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Handsome soccerman David Beckham has reportedly pulled out of Union Street Café, shouty chef Gordon Ramsay's new restaurant that is set to open in London next week. According to the Mirror, an inside source confirms that the men "talked long and hard and have decided not to work together on this occasion." Ramsay initially confirmed Beckham's involvement at the Mediterranean-inspired restaurant back in February.

Though Beckham appears to be out of Union Street Café, there's still hope for a possible restaurant collaboration with Ramsay. Earlier this month, rumors surfaced that the duo were planning a pie and mash shop together. Apparently, Beckham hopes that a cafe in London could be the "starting point for a worldwide chain." According to the Mirror's source, they're still "talking" about it. Sure, why not.
