Vegetarian at Ramsay's Royal Hospital Road?

themkook May 23, 2010 07:07 PM

Has anyone ever had an experience with a vegetarian at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Royal Hospital Road?

How accommodating is the chef to a vegetarian (no meat, no fish, yes dairy and most everything else)?

I ask this because I am planning a meal there, but there is a vegetarian in my party and I know Ramsay is notoriously averse to going meat-less. Also, there is not a single item on the restaurant's menu that does not contain meat or fish.

If anyone has any advice/insight/tips, let me know.

Alternatively, would Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester be a better option? Or even, somewhere entirely different?

    Recent review by Giles Coren of "Gauthier" a new opening in Soho would seem to indicate it could be a good bet for a vegetarian looking for a fine dining experience. Once you cut through the fluff in his reviews he is usually reliable on the food: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life...

      The Ledbury has a vegetarian tasting menu, and The Square will do one as well.

        It's rare these days to find somewhere that doesnt have a vegetarian item on its menu (or advertise that it has a separate veggie menu). Your note, that RHR doesnt, might be sufficient answer to the question about how accommodating the place might be. But perhaps give them a call and ask.
