British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is to open a branch of his all-you-can-eat pizza chain Street Pizza in Northwest, Washington DC.
London currently hosts four branches of Street Pizza, at St Paul’s, Camden, Southwark and Battersea, but the DC restaurant will be its first US outpost. The pizza restaurant will open at 501 Seventh Street, a location that was originally earmarked for a branch of Ramsay’s Fish & Chips, which already operates in Las Vegas and Orlando.
You can expect to pay £16 for all-you-can-eat pizza at Street Pizza in London, which translates to about $20 for options like classic margherita, pepperoni, charred aubergine and corn & chorizo.
Street Pizza is not the only Gordon Ramsay-led restaurant with plans to open in DC, as the chef’s Hell’s Kitchen - a restaurant format based on the hit television show of the same name - is slated to open its doors at The Wharf in DC. Diners can expect to find Ramsay’s signature dishes on the menu there, such as pan seared scallops, lobster risotto, beef wellington, crispy skin salmon and sticky toffee pudding.
