Gordon Ramsay Closes Two Australia Restaurants

August 29, 2011

Gordon Ramsay has closed two of his Australia restaurants because they are "not financially sustainable." The celebrity chef owes about $4.8 million on Maze and Maze Grill, both in Melbourne, after pumping some $8 million of personal cash into the restaurants at the peak of the 2009 recession.

Gordon Ramsay's restaurants span the globe, including locations in Ireland, the U.K., the U.S., Dubai and Tokyo. We covered the troubles his Montreal restaurant Laurier Gordon Ramsay experienced on opening night earlier this month. Do you think the "Hell's Kitchen" chef is spreading himself too thin, so to speak?
