Fashion house Louis Vuitton is about to open its very first restaurant in the world. It will be located in Osaka, Japan, at their new flagship boutique Le Café V. The menu will be carefully crafted by famous Japanese chef Yosuke Suga and a few select guests will have the chance to try his exclusive dinner. The space will include a bar and a big terrace.

Michael Burke, the chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton, confirmed the opening of the restaurant. He also hinted that there may be more eateries and even hotels in the company’s future. The Osaka boutique will open on February 1st, while the restaurant will start working on February 15th. 

“The future of luxury will not only be in luxury goods, as it’s been for many years, but also in luxury experiences, and we want to be in both segments,” said Bernard Arnault, the company’s CEO last year, as quoted by U.K.’s Evening Standard.
