  • Gordon Ramsay restaurant coming to Orlando, permits show

  • Restaurant will be located at ICON Park on International Drive

  • The restaurant will be Ramsay's Fish & Chips concept

The Spectrum News partner Orlando Business Journal was the first to report the news of a Central Florida Ramsay restaurant in the works.

Gordon Ramsay North America will be bringing the chef’s Fish & Chips concept to International Drive’s ICON Park. The restaurant is expected to be complete by May, according to the OBJ report.

Although a Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips location for Orlando has not been officially announced, Spectrum News found permits filed with Orange County that includes diagrams labeled "Gordon Ramsay Fish and Chips ICON Park" that disclose details about a restaurant. One permit filed in December listed this description for the type of work that would be done: “addition to house new walk-in cooler and restrooms, demolition of interior with new construction for a tenant fit-out of proposed fast food casual.”

Another permit filed earlier this month called for “interior & exterior renovation with additional square footage in interior space to be constructed.”

A diagram of what the restaurant’s layout could look like was also included with the permits. The image shows the restaurant will have indoor and outdoor patio seating. The document also shows the area where customers would enter the queue to order their food.

Spectrum News reached out to ICON Park and the contractor listed on the project for comment but has not heard back.

Gordon Ramsay operates several restaurants in the U.S., most of them located in Las Vegas. That city also is home to a Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips.

Gordon Ramsay wouldn’t be the first celebrity to open a restaurant at ICON Park. Country music star Blake Shelton opened his Southern-style restaurant, Ole Red, at the entertainment complex last year.
