VIU restaurant of The St. Regis Bangkok is excited to announce their upcoming culinary pop-up experience featuring world-renowned celebrity chef, Gucci Osteria Seoul. Gucci Osteria Seoul is a collaboration between Gucci X Osteria da Massimo Bottura, representing modern Italian eateries located in diverse global cities, each with its unique character but united by a shared gastronomic approach. The event will capture the vibrant energy of Gucci and the philosophy of founding chef Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy (3 Michelin stars).
Executive Chef Hyungkyu Jun and Head Chef Davide Cardellini from Gucci Osteria Seoul, the contemporary Italian restaurant’s third global outpost, will elegantly combine the vibrant spirits of both Italian and Korean culinary cultures. The epicurean journey will start with a “Black Pearl Garden” featuring Kaebia, Korean caviar sought after for its rarity and flavor, followed by “Gambero Scapece”, a contemporary spin on the Gamberi in Salsa Rosa, and “Kimchi Chronicles”, inspired by the classic Radicchio Risotto and representing Italian cuisine paying respect to the Korean tradition of fermentation craftsmanship.
For the fourth course, “Fallen Leaves in the Ocean” is a contemporary take on Pesce in Crosta di Patate, followed by the main course—”Rosso e Nero,” a hashed tenderloin dish inspired by the Godfather trilogy originally created when the two Gucci Osteria Seoul chefs worked on a movie-themed event for Gucci. On the menu of every Gucci Osteria features a tribute dish to the chocolate-loving son of founding Chef Massimo Bottura. For the luminaries at The St. Regis Bangkok, the Seoul chefs are creating “Viagggio Universale di Charley,” inspired by a black hole and originally created for the 2022 Gucci Fashion Show “Cosmogonie”.
The Gucci Osteria Seoul experience will take place from April 27-29, 2023 at VIU on the 12th floor of The St. Regis Bangkok. The six-course experience is priced at THB 5,100++ per person, or THB 7,800++ including wine pairing. Don’t miss out on this unique culinary opportunity to taste the vibrant spirits of both Italian and Korean culinary cultures.
