Ramsay teams with Mandarin Oriental, Boston

Mandarin Oriental, Boston and Gordon Ramsay North America have announced the opening of Ramsay’s Kitchen, an all-new dining concept by multi-Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay. The new restaurant provides guests with the opportunity of a glimpse into Ramsay’s personal kitchen and takes guests on a culinary journey around the world. In addition to the restaurant, guests of the hotel will be able to access Ramsay Kitchen menu items through in-room dining services.

Celebrating Ramsay’s most renowned dishes, the Ramsay Kitchen menu offers an array of elevated yet approachable plates, entrées and craft cocktails. Guests can enjoy signature dishes such as beef Wellington and braised lamb shank, as well as other reimagined fan-favourites — many with a Boston twist — including the lobster and clam bouillabaisse.

Ramsay’s Kitchen accommodates more than 180 guests with a 650m² layout including bar and lounge, main dining room, raw bar, two private dining areas and a seasonal patio. The accent colours and rich furnishings bring a warmth to the space and create a cozy, intimate setting. The style elements evoke the city’s history including the restaurant’s bar which has been designed to emulate the cable-stayed Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge. The use of blue marble is a nod to Boston Harbor’s waters and the incorporation of brick represents the city’s historic architecture.
