Father, Michelin-starred chef and TV star—Gordon Ramsay ushers in Lucky Cat to the Miami dining scene, cementing himself as a fine-dining chef stateside 


“The cuisine at Lucky Cat is me on a plate,” says Gordon Ramsay. Though from the UK, he’s spent over 20 years traveling across Asia. He brings the memories of finding bites to eat in the alleys of Tokyo, family kitchens in the backstreets of Hong Kong and fishing off the coast of China. 

Inspired by Tokyo’s 1930s kissas and Shanghai drinking dens, Lucky Cat debuted last week in Miami, where it’s part lounge, part high-end restaurant. 

“I couldn’t imagine a better home for Lucky Cat than the iconic and world-class destination of Miami Beach,” says Ramsay. Lucky Cat first opened in 2019 in the UK—in Mayfair and Manchester—and this is its first location stateside. “We hope to match the energy of the city and the outstanding culinary talent we’re surrounded by, while offering an unforgettable experience with the Lucky Cat touch.” says Ramsay.

Ramsay himself is as busy as always—he was recently in China for another restaurant opening, he’s in production for another television show, and he and his wife announced the arrival of their sixth child, Jesse James, this past fall. 

The menu at Lucky Cat is inspired by various regions across Asia, and features sushi and sashimi, buns and dumplings, tempura specialties, skewers, beautifully crafted robata-grilled dishes, and a variety of small plates and creative bar snacks.

The design draws inspiration from the atmosphere of underground pubs of early 20th century Tokyo, and weaves together Japanese artistry alongside elements of classic luxury to create an immersive dining experience. Warm wood tones and natural textures give the walls and furnishings a timeless, enduring quality, and rich upholstery in deep jewel tones and custom brass details weave a thread of understated opulence throughout the space—giving guests the sense they have entered a chic gourmet hideaway. To complement, intricately designed light fixtures pair with Art Deco-style lanterns to give the bar and dining spaces a warm, diffuse glow. 

As always, Ramsay brings his singular sense of style and cuisine to one of the most important food cities in the world.
