Acclaimed Italian chef Massimo Bottura tells Eater in an exclusive interview that he and Gucci CEO Marco Bizzarri are discussing a potential restaurant in Beverly Hills. Bottura is the chef and owner of Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy, which reclaimed the top spot on the World’s 50 Best restaurants this year. The first Gucci Osteria di Massimo Botturaopened early in 2018 in Florence, Italy, and has been a great success, according to Bottura.

“Gucci has a rooftop on Rodeo Drive in the store, with a private entrance,” Bottura explained. “It’s an amazing building. The way we are playing in Florence is the same way Gucci is playing with fashion. Taking details from the past 70 years and matching with new ideas to create a new aesthetic. A new fashion. A new word. Pushing boundaries. We are playing in the same way at Osteria Gucci.”
