Located in Osaka, Japan, both the café and restaurant feature dishes from famed chef Yosuke Suga, who was once the protégé of the legendary, 32-Michelin star chef, Joël Robuchon. Le Café V is located on the top (fourth) floor of the store, where cocktails are to be served on an outdoor terrace — perfect for shoppers who need a little R & R post- or mid-shopping spree.
The restaurant, Sugalabo V, opens only for dinner and is a concept of Chef Suga’s critically acclaimed, limited seating restaurant of the same name in Tokyo. Behind a set of speakeasy doors, Louis Vuitton’s restaurant features an open kitchen, designed with sleek embellishments and warm woods, distinctly LV.
Louis Vuitton has partnered with Tokujin Yoshioka, a creator for the fashion house’s furniture and travel-inspired accessories collection to add the finishing details to the space. Yoshioka is known for his contemporary, nature-inspired pieces, fitting for the decor of the new restaurant and cafe. The interior, designed by Jun Aoki, is meant to resemble a ship floating on water, with faint reminders of billowing sails.
