"If at first you don't succeed" seems to be the mantra of UK chef and TV personality Gordon Ramsay, who will be opening a pub soon at The Grove. Eater LA says they have confirmation the "Hell's Kitchen" and "Kitchen Nightmares" main man will be opening up in place of The Farm, which is set to close at the end of March.

A pub at the Grove actually sounds like a winning proposition, since right now it's hard to get happily sauced at any of the existing establishments at mall itself. While being pissed on a few pints might make the reflexes needed to dodge the trolley a little slower, it might make being at the Caruso-invented space a little more tolerable. Cheers to that!

Another tasty morsel associated with this news is that this pub project could involve none other than another UK-import living and playing in Los Angeles, David Beckham.

Ramsay sold his stake in the restaurant that bears his name at the London West Hollywood in March 2009*, so this will be his first return endeavor in the restaurant biz in L.A. (Not counting the vocal advice he's shouted at a few of our local eateries and their often-inept owners.)

Good luck to ya, Chef!

*Ed. note: We were contacted by Ramsay's PR rep, who explained that Ramsay's relationship with Gordon Ramsay at the London West Hollywood is a "consultancy" and that he is still involved with the restaurant in that capacity.
