The famous three-Michelin-star Chef Massimo Bottura has opened the intimate restaurant, Osteria da Massimo Bottura Beverly Hills, on the roof of Gucci’s Los Angeles store. A first for both Bottura and Gucci in the United States, the space boasts outdoor seating and sprawling views of Beverly Hills and is an exciting addition to the dynamic and culturally diverse Los Angeles food landscape.
Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura Beverly Hills is a continuation of Massimo’s collaboration with Gucci, which began in 2018 with Gucci Osteria at the Gucci Garden in Florence, which was recently awarded one Michelin star. The partnership originates from a childhood friendship between Gucci CEO Marco Bizzarri and Chef Massimo Bottura and celebrates their shared love of two core Italian cultural themes: food and fashion. Growing up together in Modena, Italy, they have challenged each other to innovate in their respective fields and thus, created a destination steeped in passion and heritage, viewed through an original and creative lens.
Using organic produce sourced from local farmer’s markets, the plates at Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura Beverly Hills will honor the complex variety of culinary influences from around the world that can only be found in Los Angeles. The new Gucci outpost in California allows Chef Massimo Bottura to develop and transform classic Italian recipes into cross-cultural compositions by mixing references, techniques and flavors within each dish. Gucci Osteria Beverly Hills will not only be a fixture on Rodeo Drive, but an important part of the evolving experimental food scene that further establishes Los Angeles as a place of culinary innovation.
