Gordon Ramsay horrified over restaurant's Victoria Beckham snub

June 2, 2011 |  7:00 am

Victoria Beckham was refused a special order at LA dining spot Gjelina Celeb chef Gordon Ramsay thinks you should give Victoria Beckham what she wants, thank you very much. 

Well, nothing unreasonable, just a few modifications to the odd restaurant dish so the pregnant celeb can enjoy a mild meal.

Speaking with the media to promote the second season of "MasterChef," Ramsay let an anecdote fly about a recent meal he shared with soccer star David Beckham's wife, according to our fellow blog Daily Dish.

At celeb-favorite Venice restaurant Gjelina, Ramsay and "Lady Victoria," as he called her, broke bread together. When she placed an order for a smoked trout salad sans accoutrement (grapefruit, avocado, red onion and lemon) and dressing on the side, Mrs. Beckham was brutally rebuffed.

"The lady's pregnant!" Ramsay cried. "No one is asking to be fussy. ... I still think that's the customer's prerogative. ... It was a sour note. I don't think customers should be treated that way."

Ramsay argues that her eight-months-pregnant-status certainly warrants lighter fare, though it could be argued a high-brow dining experience shouldn't be modified.

What do you think of Victoria's special order? Tell us in comments.
