The 3 Golden Rules of Dining Out By Gordon Ramsay

You may follow him purely for his scathing foul-mouthed insults but that’s not what makes Ramsay Gordon one of the top chefs in the world. With three Michelin stars under his apron and fancy restaurants in London, America, Italy, France, Qatar, Hong Kong and Dubai, the British celebrity chef can be trusted to know the A-Z of dining out.

In an interview with Daily Mail, Gordon revealed his three golden rules for getting the best out of a dining experience. Scroll down to get a few tips for your next dine-out session.

1. Avoid Specials

It seems like the 50-year-old celebrity chef is not a fan of special menus. In his words: ‘Specials are there to disappear throughout the evening. When they list 10 specials, that’s not special.’

2. Be wary of outlandish claims

He's not the one to fall for fancy words so naturally, flowery terms like ‘famous', 'wicked', 'best in the country' don't go well with him.

Gordon advises customers to avoid dishes that come with ridiculous boasts. Why? Because they usually fail to live up to the expectations.

3. Haggle for wine

Shocking as it may sound, when it comes to ordering wine, Ramsay has a secret tip: ask for the “bin end list.”

This means the bottles with peeling or scratched labels, vintages that will soon be off the menu or wines the restaurant is struggling to sell. By doing this, you can get the best value bottle.
