Gucci Restaurant Opens In Shanghai

Aug 9th 2015 | lifestyle

Gucci recently opened its first restaurant in Shanghai, China and promises to be a new culinary destination. The “1921 Gucci Café” plays tribute to Gucci’s history, referencing the year of the label’s foundation.

Gucci has chosen one of Shanghai’s most popular commercial avenues for its first restaurant. Located on the fourth floor of the IAPM luxury shopping mall on Huaihai Lu, the 1921 Gucci Café took two years to complete and is accessible by means of an elevator from the Gucci store in the mall. With elegantly done-up interiors in gold shades and full of velvet, every inch of the place radiates Gucci style; the 1921 Gucci logo is stamped on everything from menus to cutlery to napkins. 

The menu is high on Italian cuisine but the restaurant offers a wide range of options to satiate foodie cravings. Chinese gourmands will have the chance to experience authentic bruschetta, made with marinated tomatoes, garlic and basil with the pasta options an obvious highlight, especially the spaghetti with mussels, urchins and calamari. 

 

It’s really lovely to have assurance from the company arranging the night that we will be looked after, even after we have paid the money - Charlotte
