Having been such a huge influence on British gastropub fare, it was only a matter of time before Gordon Ramsay opened one himself. As is so often the case nowadays, The Narrow is a restaurant in a former pub, rather than any kind of drinking den, and the food is esoteric British, rather than burgers and chips. Roasts, pies, offal and fresh fish are the staples here, and there's an entire section of the menu devoted to things on toast. And it's all as good as you'd expect. Gordon himself is not in the kitchen, but his protege Mark Sergeant, Executive Chef from Ramsay at Claridge's, has found a great way to reproduce the Ramsay formula in a mid-price restaurant, and the venue itself is stunning, with great views of Limehouse Basin and fantastic outside tables.
