Gucci Osteria Opens in Tokyo

Gucci announced the opening of the third Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura in Tokyo on 28th October 2021. Located on the top of the Gucci Namiki flagship store in Ginza, this will herald the contemporary Italian restaurant’s second global outpost outside of Italy, after Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, USA.  

Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura are contemporary restaurants with the same values and principles under one Gucci Osteria umbrella. Adding creativity, elegance, playfulness and sensuality to traditional Italian cuisine, guests in Tokyo will enjoy a unique dining experience that will also incorporate the diversity and identity of its location.

Seating 48 guests in the main dining room and 12 on the terrace, the new restaurant will serve lunch, dinner and Italian aperitivo. The kitchen will be led by head chef Antonio Iacoviello, bringing the youthful energy and philosophy of the original Gucci Osteria in Florence to Tokyo.

The menus have been developed by internationally acclaimed chef Massimo Bottura (owner of 3 Michelin Starred Osteria Francescana, voted The World’s Best Restaurant in 2016 and 2018), Karime Lopez, head chef of Gucci Osteria in Florence, Italy (awarded its first star in the Michelin Guide Italy 2020) and head chef Antonio Iacoviello. 

The à la carte menu will include Gucci Osteria signature dishes such as the legendary Emilia burger and Tortellini with Parmigiano Reggiano cream. There will also be creative takes on Italian-centred dishes and new seasonal Japanese-inspired creations. These will include Parmigiana Ramen and Milanese Wagyu.

Massimo explains, “Like Italy, Japanese food and produce are so intertwined in its culture that it has rightly become one of the greatest global cuisines. Japan holds a special place in my heart, and I’m excited to be able to welcome everyone to our little piece of Tokyo.”

A wide variety of drinks will also be available, including a wine list of over 350 bins and a cocktail offering. Guests will also be able to enjoy champagne and light snacks as a traditional Italian aperitivo from 4-6 pm daily, served on the restaurant’s rooftop terrace. 

The carefully curated interiors at Gucci Osteria Tokyo take inspiration from the original Florence outpost, with references to the Italian Renaissance and the eclectic mix of aesthetics embraced by Gucci. At the private lift entrance on the ground floor, a mysterious enfilade sets the tone for the upstairs. Gucci Décor’s Tian wallpaper enriches the trellis woodworks, resembling the dream-like atmosphere of winter gardens. Once inside, a vibrant green palette defines the spaces through each room, where rich peacock velvet banquettes complement the pea-green panelling, marble dining tables, wicker chairs and the Gucci Décor tableware.

Unique elements that distinguish the Gucci Osteria Tokyo include its wood flooring, hand-painted with a pattern inspired by antiques collected by Creative Director Alessandro Michele. The recurring symbolism of the star appears both in the ceiling lights of the hall leading to the main room as well as in the mosaic floor in the terrace, adorned with traditional Japanese plants. In addition, hidden behind patio doors, is an ornate private dining room named Room of Mirrors, which hosts up to 8 guests, where antique European mirrors, ebonized boiserie, and the Radura wallpaper from the Gucci Décor collection provide a truly intimate and exclusive dining experience. The exterior glass façade of the entrance facing Namiki-dori street is designed to allow a fluid perspective–offering a view of the linden trees on the roadside, the symbol of Namiki-dori Street.

Mom’s Spaghetti Opening in Detroit

Mom’s Spaghetti–the concept restaurant featuring menu items centered around the legendary lyric from Eminem’s iconic “Lose Yourself”–will be opening a brick-and-mortar location in downtown Detroit. The restaurant, located within the newly-opened Union Assembly restaurant at 2131 Woodward Avenue “in the alley between Union Assembly and The Fillmore,” opens for business at 5:00 pm on September 29.
Eminem and his manager Paul Rosenberg partnered with Union Joints restaurant group–with whom they worked on the original project–to create the permanent location. Stans are likely already familiar with Mom’s Spaghetti; the concept was launched in 2017 as a pop-up at The Shelter, the iconic music venue at legendary St. Andrew’s Hall in Detroit, in conjunction with the release of Eminem’s “Revival” album. The pasta pop-up then made intermittent appearances at various Eminem live festival performances and events over the course of the following year including Coachella, Firefly and Governor’s Ball. During the pandemic, Shady Records contracted Union Joints to deliver Mom’s Spaghetti to frontline caregivers at eight hospitals and to those administering Covid-19 vaccinations at the TCF Center (formerly Cobo Hall) garage in Detroit. Now, Detroiters and those visiting downtown can get their fix of the spaghetti-based menu whenever they are in the area.
“We’ve had a lot of fun putting this project together with the folks at Union Joints, and the response from fans has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Paul Rosenberg, manager for Eminem. “The previous pop-ups were really a test for us to determine whether there was enthusiasm for a regularly-occurring Mom’s Spaghetti spot that would be open all year long. We are really pleased to announce the arrival of the walk-up restaurant and adjacent upstairs store, called The Trailer, where fans can experience a uniquely-curated environment and obtain merch and other items from Eminem and his new pasta operation.”
Curt Catallo, co-owner of Union Joints, added, “When we were first tapped to create the pop-ups it was an honor for all of us involved. The opportunity to build a permanent location based on an incredibly meta reference was one that everyone at Union Joints, as a Metro Detroit restaurant group, took very seriously. We’re proud of the fact that we created a scratch sauce that tastes like it’s straight from the jar, and wok-firing the noodles gives it that leftover pasta snap. The walk-up window and small diner-like spot for people to eat add to the feeling that this is a homegrown, DIY experience. And The Trailer retail space that Ann (Stevenson) designed is a nod to Eminem’s character in 8 Mile…it’s something that belongs in Detroit, and it feels right at home in this space.”
Keen-eyed Detroiters may have noticed that Mom’s Spaghetti was initially teased with a commercial that ran throughout this past weekend on local television; you can view the spot HERE. Mom’s Spaghetti occupies a small bodega space within Union Assembly. Designed by Ann Stevenson, the space feels as though the rest of the restaurant was built around it… like a longstanding neighborhood holdout that wouldn’t budge. Mom’s is ordered and served via a walk-up window in the alley with limited customer seating inside next to the bodega space.
September 29 also sees the opening of The Trailer, a dedicated Eminem retail space that’s located above the Mom’s Spaghetti kitchen. A nod to B. Rabbit’s trailer from 8 Mile, the space features Mom’s Spaghetti merch, items from the Eminem retail collection (including limited editions and coveted dead stock) and memorabilia from the Eminem archives. Expect drops and rotating stock in this retail space, which is limited to eight Stans at a time.

MAALOT Roma

Shedir Hospitality Holding have announced the opening date of their first MAALOT hotel: MAALOT Roma. The opening period will start on October 1, 2021.

General Manager Edoardo Officioso comments; “My team and I are thrilled about this new opening and we can’t wait to open the doors to the first hotel of the MAALOT brand. This first property, located just a few steps from [the Trevi Fountain], aims to become the new ‘lounge’ in Rome where… [we can] share a drink or taste the gourmet experience we are finalising. After these last months we hope to offer locals and travellers a special place to gather and find the pleasure to socialise again” Located in what was the residence of Gaetano Donizetti (1797 – 1848) famous Italian opera composer of Don Pasquale, Lucia di Lammermoor and Maria Stuarda, MAALOT Roma aims to attract a young and more seasoned clientele looking for a vibrant and cosy place for gathering and being in the know in the most central part of Rome.

A restaurant and bar are set in a glass roof veranda. Signature element of the 30 distinctive rooms is paintings of hats that symbolise “setting your hat down and feeling at home.”

Property Features 

MAALOT Roma is a boutique hotel developed around the concept of a lounge with private bespoke rooms. Set in an historical building, the property surprises the guests at arrival. On the ground floor, a central court with a glass ceiling welcomes guests in a winter garden where the Don Pasquale restaurant is located. Centre stage is the elegant chandelier which features light red fabric lamp shades. The court is a celebration of the colonial-British style where pastel colours, art pieces, customised furniture and a rich variety of textures make the lounge cosy and vibrant at the same time. The tables are made of handmade tiles. For each sitting place is an old fashion lace set in the tile. Sofas and chairs made in silky fabric and vibrant colourful details complete the look and feel to make the bistro an all-day lounge.

Still on the ground floor there is a bar area: a cosy spot in darker hues of browns and greens. Elegant use of dark wood elements and rich fabrics such as ruby-red shiny silk with sophisticated textures make the bar an exclusive and intimate area. Right at the end of the space is the reception area: a studio with an old fashion British-style library boasting a selection of books about Rome, luxury and fashion. Bespoke furniture made of Ebano wood makes the ambience welcoming and reassuring, away from the chaotic life of the city centre. The 30 rooms and suites are located across 4 floors. Each and every room is developed around a specific selection of vibrant colour schemes: dark blue, ochre, dark red. An Italian limestone fireplace completes the look and feel of the rooms. Guests will also have access to a fitness room–a 100 square meters area with the latest state-of-the-art machines.
