Gordon Ramsay is planning another project in Chicago – this time, setting fire to a Hell’s Kitchen that will open in early 2023.
The restaurant, which is inspired by the Fox TV series of the same name, will be located at 508 N. State St. and will join the River North neighborhood that previously hosted Gordon Ramsay Burger, his first venture into the city in 2021.
“When we considered where to open additional Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen locations, Chicago was key for me,” Ramsay said in a statement. “River North is one of my favorite neighborhoods, and I’m excited to have two restaurants there soon.”
On the menu, foodies and fans can choose from a range of handcrafted Ramsay classics, such as Beef Wellington and Sticky Caramel Pudding. Dishes will be prepared in the open kitchen in the center of the restaurant for an added touch of showmanship and spectacle.
As for drinks, the bar will offer classic and signature cocktails, including a traditional Negroni and Smoke on the Boulevard. For a personalized touch, diners can order Notes from Gordon, a dry Plymouth gin drink that pairs well with a message – or insult – from the star chef himself.
Compared to the Gordon Ramsay Burger at the corner of State and Ontario, Hell’s Kitchen is much bigger. The new restaurant will span 18,000 square feet, while Ramsay’s first will cover 5,000 square feet.
The new two-story venue will feature vibrant touches among neutral finishes inside and emphasize verticality details, attributing the origins of its sleek modern look to the city of Chicago.
Ramsay also bills for additional projects besides the Chicago restaurant. It was announced on February 24 that Hell’s Kitchen will continue to expand from its original Las Vegas location further east to Miami and Washington, D.C., with both opening dates set for late 2022.
Chicago’s Hell’s Kitchen will join Gordon Ramsay’s current 13 restaurants in North America in eight cities across the United States
