WASHINGTON — Internationally renowned chef Gordon Ramsay teamed up with D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on Wednesday for a friendly cooking competition at his newly opened restaurant in the District.
Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips opened on Oct. 25 at 665 Wharf Street Southwest in The Wharf area of the city. The location is the third in the franchise, which is his take on the classic English street food. The menu ranges from classic fish and chips to chicken, shrimp, "dirty chips" and Gordon's signature shakes: Sticky Toffee and Biscoff.
During the competition, Bowser got to try her hand at one of the signature shakes with the help of Ramsay. Chef Ramsay and Mayor Bowser competed against Deputy Mayor John Falcicchio and Chef Christina Wilson, who won season 10 of Ramsay's reality show Hell's Kitchen, to see who could make the best Biscoff shake.
The Ramsay-Bowser duo reigned victorious with their shake against the competition.
There could possibly be a chance for a rematch in the future as restaurateur Ramsay is not stopping with the Fish & Chips location in D.C. He is also opening his wildly popular Hell's Kitchen restaurant, inspired by the show of the same name, on The Wharf as well in early 2023.
Until then, the Fish & Chips location in D.C. is open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-11p.m. Friday-Saturday, according to The Wharf website.
