It's only a month until David Beckham makes his first venture into the restaurant biz as the retired footballer and chef pal Gordon Ramsay get set to open their first venture together.

Union Street Cafe will be a two floor restaurant in Southwark, London, focusing on Mediterranean style food and artisan products.

The restaurant will have an open kitchen where diners can watch the chefs at work



Set to open in September, Gordon Ramsay joked to The Sunday Times, 'David Beckham is going to be my sous chef.' Oh how we wish that was true.

The site near Borough Market will offer 'quality Mediterranean-influenced food with a daily changing menu,' explained Ramsay. The open kitchen will also make use of the local food markets for produce and meals will be reassuringly affordable at around £25-£30 a head.

The restaurant will be a new venture for Becks since retiring from football this year



Rumoured offerings on the menu so far include veal carpaccio with lemon, anchovy, olive and celery, Baked spiny lobster with chilli and marjoram and Torn pasta with artichoke, pancetta, mint and ricotta. Yum.

There will also be a downstairs bar for post-work boozing, serving up snacks and 'classic Italian as well as innovative new cocktails with a London influence.'

Golden Balls mojito anyone?



The design of the establishment (as shown in these artist renderings) has been led by Russell Sage, who designed Ramsay's Bread Street Kitchen.

Union Street Cafe will open at 47-51 Great Suffolk Street, London SE1 0BS in September 2013. We'll see you there.
