In addition to their painfully anticipated new London restaurant the Spotted Pig Union Street Cafe, newly retired football legend David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay have reportedly been approached by Steve Wynn to open a Las Vegas “sports bar and grill.” The superrich magnate has apparently been after Ramsay even before Prince was “on” Apollonia, Sun reports, but it should also be noted that this publication’s entertainment section is called “Bizarre” and the tabloid itself is currently leading with a dispatch from Jinhua about an “abandoned newborn found lodged under [a] toilet.”
That aside, the story is likely true, if not for the fact that it sounds like a done deal, or one that’s about to be signed in a mix of blood and demi-glace in some fur-lined penthouse. The Sun quotes an unnamed source who’s totally not a public relations executive for Steve Wynn and/or a professional wishful-thinker as saying: “The Strip has never seen such fierce competition for food, but Gordon’s places are full seven nights a week. He’s one of the best chefs in the world, so it’s only natural that Steve feels he should have a place in his hotel as it’s the most luxurious on The Strip.”
Once you bring Beckham (and Posh Spice, by proxy) “into the mix,” the source explains, the proposed sports bar and grill “has the potential to be the most talked about restaurant in Vegas,” which is both true and sad, but not necessarily in that order.
