Maze by Gordon Ramsay~At The London NYC

MAZE by Gordon Ramsay At The London NYC is the perfect destination for New Yorkers and visitors alike to enjoy a relaxed and elegant experience. The venue is one of two Gordon Ramsay restaurants at The London NYC, the other being the two Michelin star rated, Gordon Ramsay at The London NYC.

Scottish by birth, Gordon was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in football, he went back to college to complete a course in hotel management and his dedication and natural talent led him to train with some of world’s leading chefs. In 1993 Gordon became chef of Aubergine in London and within three years was awarded two Michelin stars. In 1998, at the age of 31, Gordon set up his own restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, which quickly received the most prestigious accolade in the culinary world – three Michelin stars. One of only four chefs in the UK to maintain three stars, Gordon was awarded an OBE in 2006 for services to the industry. Now internationally renowned, Gordon has opened a string of successful restaurants across the globe, from Italy to NYC & LA. Gordon has become a star of the small screen both in the UK and internationally, with two top rated shows in the US. Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares and Hell’s Kitchen are both into their third and ninth series respectively, whilst his latest show, Masterchef US, is now in its second series and is proving to be another massive hit with viewers. Gordon has also published a number of books, many of which have become best sellers across the world, notably his autobiography, Roasting in Hell’s Kitchen. Gordon lives with his wife and four children in South London, along with their two bulldogs Rumpole and Romeo.

As the Chef de Cuisine, Markus Glocker continues to demonstrate his culinary expertise and creative talents as he oversees all dining, from restaurant to rooms and has successfully created one of the most consistent  hotel culinary experiences in Manhattan. He was invited to prepare dinner at the Beard House this past March 2012 marking his second appearance in as many years. Markus began working with Gordon Ramsay at his celebrated Gordon Ramsay at the Claridge in London in 2001...read more

About the cuisine
This stylish restaurant for lunch, dinner or week-end brunch has expertly redefined the dining experience with a variety of innovative dishes. MAZE offers a French influenced seasonal menu served among chic interiors designed by David Collins. This unforgettable experience is complimented by the dynamic energy of The London Bar.

Adjacent to MAZE,  it's abuzz through the day for breakfast, traditional afternoon tea, a small bites menu and smart cocktails in the evening. This dynamic yet comfortable space evokes grown up luxury in an energetic setting. The essence of the London Bar is a unique array of experiences from which to commence your day and end your evening with cosmopolitan style in Midtown Manhattan.

My experiences at both of these restaurants has always been of the highest quality both in service hospitality and cuisine. The staff is accommodating, professional, friendly and always seem to be there just when you need them, yet allowing you the space you need to enjoy your fellow diners, and the cuisine. A unique blend of sophisticated style and incomparable energy, The London Hotels are wholly original and effortlessly livable. The London Hotels, located in NYC and West Hollywood are heralding a new era in cosmopolitan hotels – where comfort and glamour seamlessly unite. The London NYC in Midtown Manhattan  is at the center of New York’s cosmopolitan hub – just steps away from Fifth Avenue shops, MOMA, Broadway Shows and Central Park.

Manhattan's tallest and perhaps 'best-situated' city hotel, The London NYC affords rare and stirring vista views of Central Park and the city skyline.
