The Group is also in final discussions with Las Vegas Sands regarding potential opportunities in Asia in Singapore and Macau. Gordon Ramsay said: “This is an exciting step for the Group, not only to be entering Asia, which has such an amazing food culture but also to bringing our London concepts which have been such a success, to new markets.” Stuart Gillies, Managing Director added: “As a globally renowned group we get many invitations to expand internationally but its important that we work with the right partner who can ensure that our high quality experiences can be delivered.  We are really excited about opening in Asia and believe there is a lot of growth potential not just for Bread Street Kitchen but other concepts in our London collection.” The Gordon Ramsay Group: Run by Gordon Ramsay and Managing Director Stuart Gillies, it employs more than 700 people in the UK through its collection of 12 restaurants. The Group has a total of 24 restaurants globally and 7 Michelin stars, with international restaurants from Europe to the US and the Middle East.
