Louis Vuitton/Stephane Muratet
If you’re a fan of the finer things in life, there’s a whole new way to combine your love for designer items and delicious food…but you’ll have to book a flight. The first-ever Louis Vuitton café and restaurant is opening in Japan.
The new luxe dining options will be a part of the Osaka, Japan, Louis Vuitton flagship location, according to WWD. The café, called Le Café V, and the restaurant, named Sugalabo V, will both be on the top floor of the four-level store.
The menus will be curated by Yosuke Suga, a renowned Japanese chef. Although there is no official word on what these two Louis Vuitton eateries will have on their menus, the restaurant Sugalabo V will be inspired by chef Suga’s Tokyo restaurant called Sugalabo. His restaurant is very exclusive, and the Louis Vuitton location will be no different. Suga travels every so often to explore new ingredients and gain inspiration for new dishes, so it’s no question that the menu will be carefully considered.
Not only will the food be decadent, but the entire aesthetic of the restaurant spaces will be decorated in line with the Louis Vuitton brand. Designer Tokujin Yoshioka was in charge of designing charger plates that reflect the design and will likely be an ode to the famous LV monogram, according to WWD.
The Louis Vuitton Osaka flagship is set to be open for retail on February 1, but Le Café V, and Sugalabo V will be open and ready to serve lucky customers starting February 15.
