Overwhelmed Gordon Ramsay said he couldn't believe the response his and David beckham's new food venture had received

More than 1,200 diners had grabbed seats at David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay’s new restaurant, the Union Street Café within half an hour of its website going live. Within four hours, 2,500 diners had been booked in and Friday and Saturday nights were almost fully booked until early November.

The Mediterranean-themed eatery is set to open its doors on 16th of September in central London and the celebrity football player and celebrity chef have been overwhelmed by bookings since it started taking reservations last week

The food will be cooked in an open theatre-style kitchen so diners could watch the chefs in action. The first pictures of Ramsay and Beckham’s, Restaurant Union Street Cafe are bound to cause excitement amongst the foodies.

The tables do not have the white table clothes which are associated with higher end dining, perhaps suggesting that it had been decided to make the restaurant slightly more modern and accessible.

  1. And according to yesterdays Caterer looks like DB has distanced himself from it already?!!

    • He has pulled out one week before the opening , Instead of getting involved in Gordon’s new restaurant, DB has his sights set on a chain of pie-and-mash cafes in a bid to create a franchise of eateries which would sell his ”favourite grub” across the country

  2. And it looks like DB has distanced himself from the project already??
