Eating above the Gucci shop? Sooooo L.A. ✨
The acclaimed Italian chef Massimo Bottura is discussing a potential restaurant deal with Gucci CEO Marco Bizzarri. Bottura is the chef and owner of Osteria Francescana which just so happened to make the World’s 50 Best Resturants list this year. However, Los Angeles wouldn’t be the first Gucci location topped with delectable Italian cuisine.
Earlier this year the first Gucci Osteria di Massimo Bottura opened in Florence, Italy and it’s been a great success! Bottura has made it very clear that he prefers to open a restaurant here in L.A. rather than other cities such as New York, Paris, or London. “There’s a lot of mixture,” Bottura explained to Eater LA, “you can have an experience of a chef collaborating on street food. That’s LA. That’s LA!”
