MONTREAL - In what can only be described as the most unexpected foodie news of 2010, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is taking over Montreal's Rôtisserie Laurier BBQ, the Gazette has learned.


With restaurants in New York, Los Angeles and Florida, Ramsay, 44, already has a foothold in North America. Yet this unpretentious, family-style eatery will be his first foray into the Canadian restaurant scene.


Opened in 1936 and located on Laurier Ave. in the heart of Outremont, this Montreal institution has long been famous for its barbecued chicken, chicken noodle soup, hot chicken sandwiches, and sugar pie. As of next February it will be renamed Rôtisserie Laurier BBQ by Gordon Ramsay, and the menu will include the house classics as well as salads, sandwiches, ribs, and hamburgers.


Known for his expletive-laced rants on cooking reality shows like Hell's Kitchen, The F Word, and Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, Ramsay most recently faced a whirlwind of personal problems. Yet despite certain setbacks, Ramsay remains a bona fide superstar on the food scene and a successful restaurateur with a three-Michelin-starred restaurant in London, as well as 12 Michelin stars to his name, surpassed only by French chefs, Joel Robuchon and Alain Ducasse. He's also authored some 30 cookbooks, consults all over the world, and has a line of cookware and counter-top appliances.


To find out how Ramsay's takeover of Laurier BBQ came about, please read Lesley Chesterman's story Thursday in The Gazette and on montrealgazette.com.

Ah ben tabarouette! Si c'était le 1er Avril, j'aurais fait un sourire. Le BBQ Laurier, le meilleur poulet BBQ au monde! Et je suis complètement impartial, même si j'ai quasiment grandi dans l'ombre de cette vénérable institution d'Outremont. Et Ramsay est mieux de pas toucher au fameux gateau Moka chaud, un sublime délice. Bon, je suis quand même optimiste. Le resto est entre bonnes mains. Les futures générations peuvent compter sur ce Brit ! :-)

Yes Chef! Does anyone know if Gordon Ramsay still holds the top track time at Top Gear??


I just checked and the answer is no. He's in 22nd place, 1st place went to Ellen MacArthur. Thats with the older car. After he came back and was in another car and is currently in 7th place.
