Louis Vuitton will open a pop-up restaurant in Seoul in May with the Michelin-starred restaurant Ikoyi of London, the French luxury house said Monday. Ikoyi at Louis Vuitton will be opened inside the brand’s flagship store located in the posh neighbourhood of Cheongdam, southern Seoul, starting next month. Chan shared his feelings about the collaboration on his Instagram account @jeremychanikoyi with this caption: “Trays on trays of individually sliced seaweed for our cod and beurre blanc serving here in Seoul, South Korea.
From May 4 we will be opening our 6 week residency at Maison Louis Vuitton, cooking a Korean inspired, Ikoyi menu. I will be relaying with my team back and forth between Seoul and London over the next month and hope to see our guests on either side of the planet. Thanks to the amazing team here and in London making both simultaneously possible.”
Ikoyi’s founder and head chef, Jeremy Chan, is set to showcase his reinterpretations of traditional Korean cuisine, the French fashion house said.
Launched in 2017, Ikoyi is a two-Michelin-starred restaurant located in London’s well-heeled neighbourhood of St James. The restaurant is famous for its creative dishes married with West African flavours.
Reservations will be opened on April 17 at 6 p.m. (local time) on the restaurant booking app Catch Table.
