Louis Vuitton will open “Ikoyi at Louis Vuitton“ with London’s Michelin-starred restaurant Ikoyi. The third in a series of pop-up culinary concepts to be housed within the Louis Vuitton Maison Seoul, the restaurant will open from May 4th until June 15th, 2023. Louis Vuitton’s latest culinary pop-up concept at the Maison Seoul invites guests to rediscover the brand’s ‘Art of Travel’ heritage through the unique dining experience that showcases Ikoyi’s exceptional techniques and creativity, inspired by the cultural richness of Korea. At the helm of the kitchen is Jeremy Chan, the visionary head chef and Ikoyi co-founder, whose innovative cuisine will leave guests enthralled. Using only the freshest local produce, “Ikoyi at Louis Vuitton“ presents a harmonious blend of the philosophies of Ikoyi and Korean cuisine, in an exclusive dining experience that is a true testament to the Maison’s commitment to innovation and excellence. A celebration of cultural harmony – every dish tells a unique story.

From lunch menu entrées including Fatty Tuna Toast & Wild Jjokpa, to main courses of Hanwoo Beef, Green Goddess & Crispy Chilli and Sugar-Cured Shrimp & Black Olive Rice, each dish reflects Ikoyi’s inventive creativity with a nod to its diverse cultural influences. Equally, the dinner menu delights with such dishes as Tartlet of Jogi-jeoit Brandade, Spring Namul & Yeasted Béarnaise for the entrées, and Ginseng Crème Caramel, Schrenckii Caviar & Saffron and Cod, Doenjang Beurre Blanc, Confit Cabbage & White Kombu for main course. To conclude both the lunch and dinner courses, chef Jeremy Chan has devised desserts that perfectly balance flavours with finesse, inlcuding Vanilla, Deodeok, Cinnamon & Wild Rice and Seasonal Korean Fruit & Chilli.

For the third collaboration, the Maison will introduce a new afternoon course featuring handpicked signature dishes from the lunch and dinner courses, designed to provide guests with further opportunities to indulge in the exclusive menus at “Ikoyi at Louis Vuitton“. In keeping with Louis Vuitton’s commitment to delivering unparalleled experiences, no detail has been overlooked. Louis Vuitton’s pop-up restaurant at Maison Seoul offers guests a dining experience like no other, with a unique space that perfectly blends the Louis Vuitton universe with the contemporary aesthetics of Ikoyi. The restaurant’s interior features wooden panels that curve seamlessly from the walls to the ceiling and marble-topped wooden tables, all reflecting Ikoyi and Louis Vuitton’s design sensibilities. From the elegant decor to the impeccably tailored uniforms worn by the staff, every element has been thoughtfully crafted to deliver a dining experience that is nothing short of exceptional.

Additionally, ‘Ikoyi at Louis Vuitton’ will display several new Objets Nomades that were showcased at Milan Design Week in April, including Atelier Oï’s stunning Quetzal, a large decorative mobile inspired by the eye-catching plumage of South American quetzals, which adds a splash of vibrancy to the restaurant’s minimalist design. Since its creation in 2012, the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection has grown to over 60 pieces, all created by a wide selection of internationally renowned designers. “I am really happy to share our design ethos with the Louis Vuitton team to create a collaborative aesthetic for our guests. Some of the warm Ikoyi minimalism meets the Louis Vuitton style in a really unique way and we can’t wait to share it with you,” said Chef Jeremy Chan.
