A third Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura is set to open in Tokyo.
Florence, Beverly Hills… and Tokyo. Later this month (28 October to be precise), Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura is set to open on the top of the Gucci Namiki flagship store in Ginza. Because, hey, you can do that sort of thing when you’re one of the world’s finest chefs.
Massimo explains, “Like Italy, Japanese food and produce are so intertwined in its culture that it has rightly become one of the greatest global cuisines. Japan holds a special place in my heart, and I’m excited to be able to welcome everyone to our little piece of Tokyo.”
Guests at the 48-cover restaurant – plus 12 on the terrace – can expect Gucci Osteria signature dishes such as the Emilia burger and Tortellini with Parmigiano Reggiano cream, plus creative takes on Italian-centred dishes and seasonal Japanese-inspired creations, such as Parmigiana Ramen and Milanese Wagyu, not to mention a wine list of over 350 bins and a cocktail / aperitivo offering.
The design, however / inevitably, will be pure Italian, inspired by the original Florence outpost, with references to the Italian Renaissance and the eclectic mix of aesthetics embraced by Gucci: rich peacock velvet banquettes, pea-green panelling, marble dining tables, wicker chairs and the Gucci Décor tableware.
