UK: Ramsay aims for the culinary grand slam: Michelin star restaurants in the major capitals of the world

Gordon Ramsay's Paris restaurant will open in Spring 2008, his clear ambition being to earn it a Michelin star.

Located in the Trianon Palace Hotel, just yards from the Palace of Versailles, and dedicated to the "joys of British food" the menu will include hand-dived scallops from the west coast of Scotland, venison from Balmoral, Aberdeen Angus Steak, line-caught seas bass from Cornwall, and mussels and oysters from beds in south Ireland.

Ramsay has long made his ambitions for Paris known. With restaurants in London and New York, and plans for further openings in Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Prague and Singapore, he has said that for him, Paris, his training ground, "is the big one".

Ramsay's basic stated ambition is to be the first chef to hold three Michelin stars in London, New York and Paris.

With the opening of The Paris restaurant - expected to be called Gordon Ramsay - he will at least become the first British Michelin-starred chef-patron to open a property in the French capital.
