Gucci Osteria in Florence

Welcomes a new Co-Executive Chef

As of today, Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura welcomes a new Co-executive Chef. Kondo “Taka” Takahiko, Head Sous Chef of Massimo Bottura’s “Osteria Francescana” in Modena, has been appointed Co-Executive Chef of Gucci Osteria in Florence and will join Karime Lopez, currently Executive Chef of Maison’s fine dining restaurant. The two chefs, also a couple in life, recently had a baby girl, so this choice has a double, positive value. First of all, the team will be strengthened, but, last but not least, the couple will also have a better work-life balance.

Founded in 2018, Gucci Osteria opened its first location in central Florence. In 2020, it earned its first Michelin star, an accolade that places Gucci Osteria among the most innovative restaurants in contemporary Italian cuisine. Moreover, Karime Lopez is the first Mexican chef to achieve this recognition. Gucci Osteria was born from the collaboration between Massimo Bottura and Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director, and includes the Gucci Garden. Gucci Osteria has since opened locations in Beverly Hills, Tokyo, and Seoul.
