Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips ICON Park Set to Open in August 2021
Orlando, FL (Restaurant News Release) Gordon Ramsay North America is excited to announce Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips is coming to Orlando’s ICON Park. Slated for an August 2021 opening, Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips ICON Park will seat more than 30 guests with indoor and counter seating, with additional outdoor patio seating that overlooks ICON Park’s observation wheel, picturesque fountains and lawn.
“It was a real tradition for me growing up, so I’m excited to bring that nostalgia from my youth to Orlando, for all the residents that call the City Beautiful home and the millions of tourists that visit each year,” said Ramsay.
The fast-casual British-style eatery takes it to the next level with fresh, sustainable ingredients paired with hand-crafted shakes, fresh-squeezed lemonades and ice-cold domestic and import beers. The star of the show is the fish & chips. Since Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips opened in Las Vegas in 2016, the restaurant has served over 750,000 fish & chips. Made with sustainable True Cod and coated with custard powder batter for the perfect golden crisp, the fish continues to be a standout menu item. The chips will be served “natural” with sea salt or “dirty” with truffle, parmesan and chives; chipotle, jalapeño and crisp chorizo; or bacon, cheddar cheese, green onions and sour cream. Alternatives like marinated shrimp with basil and lavender or chicken and chips will also be available, along with some seasonal specials and secret menu items.
The restaurant’s color scheme is reflective of the Union Jack with blue and red with industrial hardware touches. White subway tiles line the sleek kitchen space while an iconic red telephone box serves as the restaurant’s entrance and exit.
“Opening our first of many Fish & Chips outside of Vegas is a milestone for Gordon Ramsay North America. With Gordon’s passion for classic street food, we look forward to bringing Fish & Chips to other markets in the years to come,” said Norman Abdallah, CEO of Gordon Ramsay North America.
The restaurant will create over 30 jobs and is currently hiring for all full-time and part-time positions. Interested applicants should email their resume to email@example.com.
