(PRWEB UK) 5 December 2011
Book deals, ad campaigns, signature puddings - as we hurtle towards Christmas, celeb chefs aim to tuck into the accoutrements of festive cheer. But where it really matters is in their restaurants, where it all began. And despite tough competition from Marcus Wareing and Jason Atherton, Britain’s favourite fiery Scot, Gordon Ramsay, is the top choice for consumers when dining out at celeb-run restaurants.
Data from the Livebookings and Bookatable Dining Index shows online reservations for Ramsay restaurants storm ahead of the competition, with Claridge’s, Maze and The Savoy Grill topping the bookings table, ahead of Marcus Wareing’s The Gilbert Scott and Jason Atherton’s Pollen Street Social.
