Gucci on a platter

Fine fashion dining

What Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele has brought to the House is something to be considered as a holistic approach to a complete lifestyle, revolving around a set of values and iconography unique to the fashion world. Boutique plus exhibit space Gucci Garden, his brainchild standing tall and glorious in the historic city of Florence, is a landmark showcasing the brand’s taste for art and food.

In keeping with the spirit of creative collaboration that Gucci embraces, Gucci Garden’s restaurant, Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura, helmed by internationally renowned chef Massimo Bottura, opened in January 2018 and just after just two years it has received its first Michelin Star for the 2020 Italian Michelin Guide. Bottura’s dishes explore the deep roots of the Italian kitchen while making references to history, art and philosophy, true to the Gucci Garden attitude.

His famous three-Michelin star restaurant, Osteria Francescana, located in his hometown of Modena, was named number 1 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List in 2016 and 2018.  Here, he collaborates with chef de cuisine Karime López, a Spaniard who went to Paris to learn French and prepare for art college in France, and instead discovered the pastries and cuisine of the city, which inspired her to go to cooking school in Spain for three years. Together they created a menu that is reinvented each season and is inspired by the people they have both met and the experiences they have had on their travels. The foreign influences are then applied to Italian cuisine.

‘This restaurant is a reminder that Florence has always been a centre of cultural exchange, particularly during the Renaissance,’ says Bottura. To reinforce this idea, lines of a 15th-century carnival song (canto carnascialesco) by Lorenzo de’ Medici – “Canzona of the seven planets”, or “Canzona de’ sette pianeti” – are written in gold letters around the tops of the walls of the Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura. As for what is served here? Just one look and you can tell you are experiencing art on the plate. We wouldn’t expect anything less now, would we?
