'Kitchen' star Gordon Ramsay opens London hotel and restaurant
UPI News Service, 09/27/2008
Scottish celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay says opening his first hotel and restaurant is one part revenge for a recent dispute with London's Connaught hotel.
The 41-year-old host of "Kitchen Nightmares" and "Hell's Kitchen" said when he opens the York & Albany townhouse hotel in London next week, he will be serving a dish of revenge against the hotel that parted ways with him and his lead chef, Angela Hartnett, last year, The Times of London reported Saturday.
"I'm going to call it two fingers to the Connaught," Ramsay said.
