I’m often reminded that my life revolves around nothing if not a combination of food and fashion. (What else do you call keeping tabs on avocado prices while simultaneously trying to figure out which fanny pack is most flattering?) And, thanks to a new trend of chic brands trying to offer a full experience (that’ll make you feel full), there is a way to combine all the finer things in life into one neat long-distance package: the high-fashion food world tour.
Gucci recently opened its Gucci Garden, Elle reported, a building that houses a new restaurant by a three-Michelin-starred chef as well as exhibition and screening rooms. And though the Italian luxury brand is the latest to unveil a gourmet culinary project of this sort, it is not the first. Tiffany & Co. opened its own Breakfast at Tiffany’s dream-come-true café in New York City last year, and a slew of other fashion powerhouses also have glamorous dining setups across the world.
Food for thought: While a clothing item or piece of jewelry from one of these brands can set you back thousands of dollars, a meal at one of these spots is a bit easier on the wallet, if not equally Instagrammable and mood-boosting.

1. Gucci Garden, Florence, Italy
The brand behind some very hygge-friendly slippers and polarizing-ly fabulous fanny packs just unveiled this new spot in Italy. Stop by for dinner, a gander through the exhibitions, and a movie in the Twin Peaks–ish screening room.
2. The Blue Box Café, New York, New York
Breakfast at Tiffany’s used to mean binge-watching the classic Audrey Hepburn flick, reading a Truman Capote book, or eating a pastry outside the Tiffany’s window. But with the opening of this NYC restaurant, you can finally have an actual breakfast at Tiffany’s.
3. Bar Luce, Milan, Italy
In a pairing that no one could have dreamed, Prada and the aesthetics-obsessed moviemaker Wes Anderson teamed up to design and conceptualize this relaxing hangout in Milan.
4. Ralph’s, Paris, France
Ralph Lauren has numerous restaurants and bars around the world, but this Parisian spot is almost too stereotypically beautiful. It’s a prime locale for living out your chic French-girl dreams.
