Global foodies have a new destination to add to their culinary bucket list, with the opening of the first Louis Vuitton restaurant in the glamorous French Rivera. The new gastronomic destination is situated in Saint-Tropez, at the exquisite White 1921 Hotel.
For its first foray into the dining world, Louis Vuitton has partnered with Michelin-starred chef Mory Sacko to create Mory Sack at Louis Vuitton. The renowned French chef, who owns and runs the award-winning MoSuke restaurant in Paris, draws on Japanese and African culinary influences, balanced with the ‘savoir-faire’ of French cuisine.
Diners can expect and decadent and sophisticated experience, with a travel-inspired menu that elevates local produce with international flair. Dishes include a gourmet take on the Japanese ekiben ‘meal tray’, with summery flavours served in a custom-made wooden tray; as well as grilled amberjack, crayfish, and prime rib with vibrant salad accompaniments.
Located on the bustling Place des Lices, the restaurant is designed to be an “oasis of calm”, with luxurious accents of wood, rattan and travertine stone setting the modern atmosphere, while works of art, floral arrangements and travel-inspired furniture pieces adorning the space.
