Can you hear the faint sounds of explosives reverberating in Icon Park today in a signature British accent? That’s because celebrity chef and lamb sauce enthusiast Gordon Ramsay plans to open a new restaurant in Orlando this year.

As reported by the Orlando Business Journal, Ramsay’s Fish & Chips restaurant concept is apparently coming to Icon Park off International Drive. The construction work should be completed by May.

Neither Icon Park nor Ramsay’s people would be on the file, but OBJ posted a story from the International Council of Shopping Centers in which Norman Abdullah, CEO of Gordon Ramsay North America Restaurant Group, nearly confirmed plans.

Ramsay has restaurants – from maze to fish and chips, with another location already opening in Las Vegas – all over the world, but this will be his first foray into the crowded field of celebrity chefs here in Orlando.

In other Ramsay news earlier this week, Ramsay outraged the entire city of Falkirk, Scotland, by calling it a “shit hole” during an episode of his new television show Bank Balance.
