Gucci is set to open its new Osteria da Massimo Bottura restaurant in Seoul later this month. This is the restaurant’s fourth global location and third outside of Italy after Beverly Hills, California and Tokyo, Japan.
The contemporary restaurant falls under the Gucci Osteria umbrella and offers a dining experience that speaks to traditional Italian cuisine that incorporates the South Korean palette. The menu aims to bring together Italian and Korean cultures, including dishes like Seoul Garden and Adriatic Summer, while also featuring its signature dishes, the Emilia Burger and Parmigiano Reggiano Cream Tortellini. The menu is curated by internationally acclaimed Chef Massimo Bottura, Karime Lopez – Executive Chef of Gucci Osteria Florence and Executive Chef of Seoul Hyungkyu and Chef David Cardellini.
Chef Massimo explains: “There is an invisible thread that runs through each of the Gucci Osterias around the world: a thread that connects Italian cuisine to the food and products of other great world cuisines. Korea – like Italy – considers its cuisine part of its culture and I am delighted to welcome everyone to our Seoul outpost.
The interior design features a similar aesthetic to Gucci Osteria Tokyo, including ceiling lights, parquet flooring, and the terrace’s colorful marble mosaic. Additionally, a private dining room for up to eight people is hidden behind stained glass doors. Named the Hall of Mirrors, the space features antique wall mirrors that create a setting for an exclusive dining experience.
Take a look above at the Gucci Osteria Seoul da Massimo Bottura. The restaurant opens on March 28 and is now accepting online reservations.
