The ‘Pigeon Garden’ is a newer dish, brought in to better represent the seasonal calendar of ingredients in Italy. The #GucciOsteria kitchen uses produce that is in season locally meaning that ingredients travel a smaller distance, ensuring greater flavour and fewer food miles, a key ethos of Head Chef Karime López @karylomt. Seared pigeon is the focus of the dish, served with a small salad with Tuscan herbs and a small aspic of pigeon ragout. Illustration by @ryutomiyake. @gucci
The restaurant had a soft opening over Oscar weekend but will officially open up to the public on February 17 with only room for up to 50 guests at a time. You can find more information on Osteria here.
