Macau casino operator and developer Sands China Ltd announced on Monday a partnership with celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay (pictured). His new restaurant will be at Sands Cotai Central, marking the first Gordon Ramsay Group concept-dining establishment in Macau, Sands China said in a press release.
Monday’s release by Sands China didn’t disclose either the concept or the schedule for opening.
Chef Ramsay’s group of businesses includes 24 restaurants across the globe and the group’s outlets have an aggregate of seven Michelin stars, according to its official website. He has been made internationally famous by a series of cooking-related reality shows on television, including ‘MasterChef’ and ‘Hell’s Kitchen’.
“It is the distinct privilege of Sands China to have the opportunity to cooperate with one of the world’s most celebrated chefs to bring the first Gordon Ramsay establishment to Macau, which will take the international dining experience at Sands Cotai Central to the next level,” Charles Newland, senior vice president of food and beverage and director of Paiza operations, said in a prepared statement.
“Sands China is constantly on the lookout for innovative ways to further contribute to the development of Macau as a world centre of tourism and leisure,” Mr Newland added.
Chef Ramsay said in the same statement: “This is an exciting move for the Gordon Ramsay Group, not only to be partnering with a fantastic organisation like Sands China but also because there is nowhere quite like Macau.”
“We will be working closely with the Sands China team on the ground to tailor one of our current concepts to this unique market and deliver a first-class dining experience,” he added.
His Gordon Ramsay Group has been expanding in Asia since last year. It will be launching its Bread Street Kitchen concept at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore later this year. Las Vegas Sands Corp, the parent company of Sands China, owns and manages casino resort Marina Bay Sands.
The Scotland-born British chef last year opened a restaurant in Hong Kong, his first restaurant in Asia.
