Gordon Ramsay has plans to open his first restaurant outside London since 2001 and is currently eyeing up sites in Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds, according to a report in The Guardian.

Ramsay opened Amaryllis, in Glasgow, in 2001 but it closed in 2004.

The newspaper quotes Stuart Gillies, chief executive of the Gordon Ramsay Group as saying Ramsay wanted to open a first restaurant in a major regional city within 18 months and is now consider options in those cities as “there’s a great dining scene there”.

However, which of Ramsay’s restaurant formats might make the journey north is not clear although the upmarket Maze Grill and casual dining Kitchen brands have both been expanding recently.
