Megu lands in Gstaad

When it come to Japanese cuisine, it’s hard to do better than Megu, the must-go restaurant in New York and Moscow that any foodista living up to their reputation dreams of testing. Because according to leading food critics, Megu is « amongst the best restaurants in the world». So be it.

The small novelty, it’s no longer necessary to land in JFK to have the right to taste this culinary grail… The already mythical table is landing in  Europe at the Hotel Alpina on the ultra peaks of Gstaad, could it be any different ?

It’s the amazing designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance who planted the bluffing decor of this Japanese house in Switzerland. A place all in pine wood and decorated with ancient kimonos, inspired by Kyoto temples perfectly integrated to the Alpine atmosphere…

Experience, experience, and what does one eat ? Chawanmushi (a salty pudding) and the Shabu Shabu (a sort of fondue). Crispy MEGU asparagus, carpaccio of Wagyu beef with basil, the oriental MEGU salad, silver cod with Yuzu Miso and nuggets of Wagyu beef with foie gras.
