Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has taken aim at bosses at a Los Angeles restaurant after they refused to cater to his pregnant pal Victoria Beckham’s special request during a recent night out.
Ramsay invited the former Spice Girl to dine with him at Venice Beach eaterie Gjelina on Tuesday but admitstheir evening was ruined when a waiter refused to accommodate his pal.

Beckham, who is due to give birth to her fourth child next month, was said to have asked for a salad dressing to be served on the side – which goes against the restaurant’s policy.

Fiery Ramsay admits the incident left him speechless.

He says, “I couldn’t believe it. The lady’s pregnant! No one is asking to be fussy…. I still think that’s the customer’s prerogative…. It was a sour note. I don’t think customers should be treated that way. That might not be the way I choose to eat it, but that’s what the customer wants… I don’t know, times are tough out there. You have to show a touch of sensitivity.”

A disclaimer on the Gjelina menu states: “Changes & modifications politely declined.”
