Gordon Ramsay Burger will be the first Chicago restaurant for celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who has spoken about his affinity for Chicago chefs (and apparent willingness to adulterate Chicago hotdogs with ketchup). The restaurant will open at 2 East Ontario Street, where it will span 5,000 square feet with room to seat 120 guests, according to Eater.

While the new restaurant will have an exclusive burger just for Chicago, its menu will be similar to its popular first location at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. There, it serves hamburger restaurant classics — think hot dogs, hamburgers, fries and milkshakes — but with a “special touch,” as the restaurant group’s website puts it. Stand-outs include a “Truffle Burger,” which is topped with tremor cheese, bacon, truffle butter, frisée, pickled shallot, fried egg and truffle aïoli; the “Hog Dog,” a bacon-wrapped footlong hot dog with cheese sauce, pulled pork, slaw and crispy onion strings; and the “Sticky Toffee Pudding Ice Cream Sandwich,” a spin on Ramsay’s beloved sticky toffee pudding recipe.
