Gordon Ramsay Buys London Restaurant Where He Got His Start for $2M


Things are coming full circle for shouty British chef Gordon Ramsay: The London Evening Standard reports that Ramsay has purchased the London restaurant space that was once home to Aubergine, where he got his first head chef role back in 1993 (and subsequently his first Michelin star). Ramsay reportedly paid £1.2 million for the building (almost $2 million USD). He has plans to launch "a 60-seater restaurant by August, although not under the Aubergine name." Aubergine was something of a launching pad for British chefs, with Marcus Wareing and Angela Hartnett having worked there under Ramsay before he left in 1998. Ramsay tweets that he "can't wait" to get started on the project. More details as they become available.
