KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay will open a restaurant in the Kansas City metro this fall.

Gordon Ramsay Steak, which will be located in Harrah’s North Kansas City, will be the multi-Michelin star chef’s first restaurant in the Midwest. The steakhouse will open in November.

“I’ve been wanting to expand to the Midwest for some time and found Harrah’s North Kansas City to be the perfect location for Gordon Ramsay Steak,” Ramsay said in a news release. “My team is thrilled to introduce some of my most signature items, including the popular beef Wellington and my all-time favorite dessert — the sticky toffee pudding to the Heartland.”

The restaurant will feature a modern design with multiple private dining rooms, a showcase wine display and nods to Ramsay’s British ties, according to the news release.

The menu will consist of American steakhouse dishes, and several menu items will feature local farms and growers. Some dishes will also highlight classic Kansas City barbecue favorites, the news release said.

“We are thrilled to team up with internationally renowned chef Gordon Ramsay to bring his world-class menu to our guests and the Midwest,” said Darren VanDover, senior vice president and general manager of Harrah’s North Kansas City. “With Chef Ramsay’s passion and attention to detail, we are sure this new restaurant offering will excite our returning guests and provide a compelling reason for first-time customers, in and around Kansas City, to visit our wonderful property.”

Gordon Ramsay Steak restaurants are also located in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Baltimore.
