Gucci Gang at Gucci Osteria at Gucci Garden
The biggest buzz in the fine dining world in recent times is the collaboration of two geniueses of our times- Alessandro Michele superstar creative director of Gucci and celebrated Chef Massimo Bottura of 3 Michelin Stars Osteria Francescana fame. Michele needs no introduction and for the uninitiated, Bottura’s Modena based restaurant was named Restaurant of the Year in 2016. Gucci Osteria opened its plush doors in Dec 2017 at the newly opened museum + concept store Gucci Garden in Florence, Italy. Main dishes are priced from INR 1560/- to 2340/- which shocked us a bit honestly! Put it on your Italy itenerary immediately Gucci fanny pack in tow!

Say J’Adore to Café Dior
The world’s biggest(and most beautiful) Dior flagship store in Seoul houses the Café Dior with world’s most loved ‘confectionaire’ Pierre Hermé who’s macarons(apparently up there with the most instagrammed foods of our times) are the stuff of food porn dreams. It opened in 2015 and now there’s a branch at Dior store in Tokyo too. But this one is special for being at the most achingly beautiful Dior store. This affair is completely gourmet and exclusive. Earmark it for your Seoul travel and while there ogle at some limited edition ‘not seen anywhere else’ Dior bags too.
This really is the stuff of wild food porn dreams! Bon Appétit!
