Gordon Ramsay opens Boxwood Cafe at the London West Hollywood

Gordon-Ramsay Gordon Ramsay just added an informal addition to the London West Hollywood, just inside the front dining room of his eponymous fine-dining restaurant. It's called Boxwood Cafe by Gordon Ramsay and it features a streamlined menu of simple, comfort fare created using seasonal ingredients and local produce. Prices are lower, too, with the average entree hovering around $16. Executive Chef Andy Cook helms both restaurants.

Boxwood serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu includes a variety of organic egg dishes, waffles, hot cereal, fruit and yogurt for breakfast; and pizettes and salads alongside more involved dishes such as sake miso-marinated Pacific black cod, steak au poivre with pommes frites and baked artichoke tarts for lunch and dinner. There is also a list of wine and beer with a focus on California microbrews and vintages.

Boxwood Cafe opened softly on Oct. 12 and officially a week later.

Although Ramsay sold Gordon Ramsay at the London West Hollywood to the hotel's operators in March, he remains "100% involved" with it and now with Boxwood, say reps for the restaurant. Ramsay operates another Boxwood Cafe in the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge, London.

I've worked for many years at the bel age,before this Ramsey Gordon comes and did very very well without him.

I ate here a few weeks ago and it was abyssmal. if Gordon Ramsay had the experience I did at his own restaurant, he would have been spewing f-bombs—and entirely humiliated. The service was terrible (we waited 35 minutes after being seated to get our cocktail order—and the restaurant was only at half capacity) and the menu was unoriginal (if you cant do miso glazed cod better than nobu, why bother?). When we finally got our food, it was fine, but why go for a passable-at-best dinner when there are so many great options in the area?
