Gordon Ramsey has owned or operated a series of restaurants since he first became head chef of Aubergine in 1993. He owned 25% of that restaurant, where he earned his first two Michelin stars.[1][2] Following the sacking of protege Marcus Wareing from sister restaurant L'Oranger, Ramsay organised a staff walkout from both restaurants and subsequently took them to open up Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, at Royal Hospital Road, London.[3] His self-titled restaurant went on to become his first and only three Michelin star restaurant.[2] Ramsay has become one of the chefs with the most Michelin stars in the world. In 2008, following the awarding of two stars for Gordon Ramsay at The London in New York, he drew with Alain Ducasse as the holder of the most Michelin stars with twelve.[4] However, he has since been overtaken by both Ducasse and Joël Robuchon and currently has eight stars as of the 2014 New York City Michelin Guide.[5][6]

Ramsay's restaurant empire expanded greatly after he began to collaborate with Blackstone Group to open restaurants within hotels. He first worked with them when he opened Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's, within Claridge's hotel in London.[7] He then opened a restaurant at The Connaught hotel,[8] and then began to open restaurants at Blackstone's London hotels in New York City and West Hollywood.[9][10] His first overseas restaurant was Verre, which was based in the Hilton Dubai Creek in the United Arab Emirates.[11] He has since opened restaurants in France, Japan, Qatar, Australia, Italy and South Africa.[12][13]

Ramsay has installed a number of proteges in restaurants. Both Angela Hartnett and Jason Atherton worked at Verre before moving back to London to The Connaught and Maze respectively. Atherton left to open his own restaurant, Pollen Street Social and Hartnett purchased Murano from Ramsay in 2010.[14][15] Wareing was made head chef of Ramsay's second London based restaurant, Pétrus.[16] It went on to win two Michelin stars, but in 2008 the two chefs fell out when Wareing kept the restaurant premises and the stars, while Ramsay received rights to the name.[17] The restaurant was renamed Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley while a new Petrus was opened in 2010.[18]

Ramsay has also sought to create both restaurant chains and casual dining restaurants. Maze won a Michelin star in 2006 at the original London location, and was subsequently expanded around the globe with several of restaurants opened.[19][20] The Boxwood Cafe was intended to be a more family friendly restaurant when it originally opened,[21] and a second restaurant was later opened in West Hollywood.[22] Although Ramsay intended to turn Foxtrot Oscar into a chain when he purchased the restaurant, no further expansions have taken place using that name.[23] Ramsay has also acquired several pubs within the UK, turning them into gastropubs. The first of these was The Narrow in London.[24] He has also signalled his intention to expand Gordon Ramsay Plane Food into a chain, with the intention to open restaurants in airports within the United States.[25]
