Both fine dining experiences have menus curated by chef Yosuke Suga, a protégé of the late culinary legend Joël Robuchon. The luxury restaurant design is elegant and chic, it truly enhances the luxury store‘s beauty and name. Le Café V includes a spacious outdoor terrace, cocktail bar, and oval-shaped “cocoon room” that is open both day and night.
Le Café V sits atop the Maison, with a menu curated by Suga. It’s composed of a Cocoon Room, with a sprawling terrace and a luxury bar, and is open throughout the day and into the night. While all shoppers perusing through Louis Vuitton can make their way up to Le Café V and grab a bite to eat, it’ll be a little trickier making your way into the exclusive Sugalabo V luxury restaurant.
A speakeasy-esque door in the cocktail bar area of Le Café V leads into Sugalabo V, which will seat just a select number of guests each evening. If it’s anything like Suga’s acclaimed Tokyo luxury restaurant(also called Sugalabo), scoring a reservation won’t be easy—the booking process and the entrance are kept secret.
Sugalabo V is set up with an open kitchen, and Louis Vuitton designer Tokujin Yoshioka created a Monogram-inspired charger plate for the luxury restaurant, so much of the tableware comes from that. The modern restaurant’s interior design is in line with the nautical theme seen throughout the store, as the shop’s aesthetic takes inspiration from Osaka’s history as a port city and travel destination.
A restaurant can be a meeting point where you often go and spend time. I guess Osaka is a city important enough, but not vital, where such an experiment can be conducted safely.
