Gordon Ramsay to open Union Street Café in south east London

Published:  05 September, 2013

Gordon Ramsay is to open a new London restaurant, the Union Street Café, close to Borough Market focused on offering seasonal Meditteranean dishes specialising in Italian artisan producers.

The new restaurant is being headed up by Italian chef Davide Degiovanni, who will look to use local ingredients from both Borough and Maltby Street markets. Expected dishes include crisp Parma ham, buffalo mozzarella & peperonata, Stone bass crudo, fennel and capers, Tagliolini, rabbit & taggiasche olives and Veal saltimbocca, marsala and fried zucchini.

Ramsay said of the new launch: "I'm delighted to welcome Davide to the team.  He is incredibly talented and it's been great working with him over the past couple of months and see his ideas come to life. The site we have chosen is an amazing space and combined with our fresh, daily changing menu with the most amazing produce, I'm excited to start welcoming guests through the doors."

Degiovanni added: "Developing the menu with Gordon has been amazing.  We wanted the style of food to be Italian, using Mediterranean produce; much like I would serve back home, but now here too, as we are working with producers such as the farm my family have been buying ricotta from all my life". 

Situated in a converted warehouse the Union Street Café's interior retains many original features, from the shutters and windows to columns, giving it a "lived in, raw, urban look."

It will also include a bar downstairs which includes specially commissioned pieces from local artists. Drinks will incude a number of Italian classic cocktails.
