Gordon Ramsay and David Beckham to Open a Pub in Los Angeles
Last week Los Angeles Anglophiles and British expats cheered when the Daily Star reported that hot-tempered chef Gordon Ramsay and soccer star David Beckham were planning to open a pub in LA.
That is, until readers reached the last sentence of the story where — not unlike the fine print on an ad too good to be true — a spokesperson for Becks is quoted as saying, “There are no plans in the pipeline, but never say never.”
Well, last night “Masterchef” Gordon Ramsay confirmed his venture on an appearance of “Lopez Tonight”.Â Says Ramsay, “The pub would be modern British, something cool and hip with good food and a great atmosphere, somewhere we can go and have fun.” Watch the clip here.
Los Angeles suffers from a dearth of British pubs. While we have a couple of favorites, certainly the new Ramsay/Becks establishment will be a welcome addition. Let’s just hope it’s not a flash in the pan.
