Gordon Ramsay takes over Montreal restaurant
The Montreal Gazette first reported that Ramsay – the enfant terrible of celebrity chefdom – has become one of four partners in the iconic family-style restaurant, located on chic Laurier Avenue West in the city's tony Outremont neighbourhood.
Ramsay already has restaurants across the United States, including in New York, Florida and Los Angeles.
The Michelin star chef has honed a reputation as a tough-talking chef on reality cooking shows, including Hell's Kitchen and The F Word.
He made headlines more recently after a bitter public row with his father-in-law, Chris Hutcheson, who worked for many years as chief executive of Gordon Ramsay Holdings.
Ramsay fired Hutcheson this fall, then published an open letter pleading with his mother-in-law to not sever all ties with his family.
The Rôtisserie Laurier BBQ has been open for 75 years, serving simple home-style cooking including barbecued chicken.
