The luxury retailer has renewed and reopened its former museum site, dedicated to all things Gucci, with a new name: Gucci Garden.
The new complex, which is now officially open to the public, is home to an exhibition space displaying objects from the luxury brand archives, a boutique selling unique pieces and an exclusive restaurant called Gucci Osteria.
The new all-day restaurant is headed by infamous Italian chef Massimo Bottura of the three Michelin-starred restaurant Osteria Francescana, and is likely to become one of the most refined destinations in the city.
Located in one of the city’s most famous buildings, the 14th century Palazzo della Mercanzia, the suitable luxurious interior of the restaurant can accommodate up to 50 diners.
The Osteria Gucci kitchen is entrusted to the chef Karime Lopez, married to the sous chef Franciscan Osteria Taka Kondo.
According to Bottura, the menu of the new restaurant is inspired by different corners of the world, but with his usual characteristic Italian edge.For example, the Taka Bun (steamed bun with pork belly) is Peruvian inspired.
The rest of the building is occupied by an exhibition area, a boutique and a cinema hall.
