When Michelin-starred celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay opens his third Ramsay’s Kitchen restaurant this spring, it will be in downtown Naperville.
The city issued a building permit for Ramsay’s Kitchen at 39 W. Jefferson Ave., the site of the former Ted’s Montana Grill, and the company has started advertising to hire key personnel.
There are only two other Ramsay’s Kitchen locations — one in Las Vegas and the other in Boston — and both feature signature main dishes such as pan-seared scallops, beef Wellington and crispy skin salmon.
Renovations for the new location are being handled by 41 North Contractors of Lisle, who also did work on the Quiubo Mexican restaurant on downtown Water Street, Cress Creek Country Club off Ogden Avenue and Market Meadows shopping center on Naper Boulevard, all in Naperville, and Gordon Ramsay Burgers in Chicago.
The Gordon Ramsay North America website says the company is looking to hire an executive chef and general manager for its new Jefferson Avenue restaurant in Naperville.
Both positions have a salary range of between $95,000 and $110,000 and require at least three years of experience.
The British chef operates 21 restaurants in the United States, including five Hell’s Kitchen establishments named after the reality show he created.
Gordon Ramsay North America did not respond to a request for comment in time for publication.
The property had been listed for lease as a turnkey restaurant with indoor seating for 146 in the current configuration and 20 additional outdoor seats on the patio.
Parking is available in a surface lot at the rear of the space and a garage is a half block away.
The Atlanta-based Ted’s Montana Grill founded by media mogul Ted Turner debuted at 39 W. Jefferson in April 2007 and closed during the pandemic.
Until July 2004, the property had been home to Oswald’s Pharmacy, which relocated from downtown Naperville to 88 W. Gartner Road in what is now Naperville Plaza.
