More Info about The Fat Cow, Gordon Ramsay's Neighborhood Pub Opening in The Grove
A few more details are circulating about Chef Gordon Ramsay's upcoming eatery at The Grove. Called The Fat Cow, the European-inspired pub will offer a "relaxed, rustic neighborhood dining environment," and "authentic, quality, fresh cuisine utilizing ingredients from all local farms and purveyors," notes a press release about the venture.
Teaming up with Gordon Ramsay Holdings Corporate Executive U.S. Chef Andi Van Willigan, The Fat Cow's menu will include "a rotating roaster, house cured meats, local cheeses, daily inspired dishes from the farmers market, as well as an in house pastry chef offering selections of classic American home desserts with a British pub flare [sic]." No mention of it in the press materials, but hopefully all of this can be washed down with a few quality pints to complete the pub experience.
The 200+ seat restaurant, taking over for The Farm, which departs this month, will be designed by AK Design Network and architects Gold Grenade.
“We’re really excited to bring this concept to life, a place where people can just relax and enjoy a delicious European inspired meal,” said Ramsay.
Van Willigan, a SoCal native seen as a sous chef on Ramsay's "Hell's Kitchen," says this new project and partnership is "really exciting."
The Fat Cow is expected to open this summer.
