Pop-up Matsuhisa @ Corviglia

Matsuhisa@Badrutt’s Palace meets White Marmot – the fusion cuisine of Japanese star chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa can be enjoyed in the new restaurant up on Corviglia Mountain for around four weeks from 16th December 2017. Exclusive Matsuhisa menus, sashimi and other delights will be served in bento boxes at 2486 metres above sea level.  The pop-up restaurant will be run by Badrutt’s Palace St. Moritz together with the mountain railway team, Bergerlebnisanbieter Engadin St. Moritz Mountains.

Tradition and innovation are the two long standing components of Badrutt’s Palace’s success story. So for the start of this winter season 2017/18 the managers of the traditional hotel have once again come up with something special. The highest Matsuhisa restaurant in the world will be opening for a short time high up on Corviglia at 2486 m above sea level in the new Engadin St. Moritz Mountains Restaurant.

‘La Marmite’ the previous restaurant on Corviglia was closed at the end of the 2017 winter season. This allowed the operating company on Corviglia, Engadin St. Moritz Mountains, to launch a new gastronomic concept. The restaurants have been completely rebuilt and the new rooms will be open from 16th December 2017 offering a brand new menu. The ‘White Marmot’ Restaurant & Bar can be found in the former space occupied by ‘La Marmite’ and will house Matsuhisa. At the start of the season and over the festive days, the Japanese star chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa - better known as Nobu - will be offering a selection of his famous dishes on the piste, so to speak.

Regular guests such as Madonna, David and Victoria Beckham and Kate Winslet have loved the original Matsuhisa for years now, with its unforgettable sushi and sashimi and the extensive offer of vegetarian, Japanese and South American food. And in the most famous Alpine valley, ‘La Coupole’ in Badrutt’s Palace St. Moritz has become one of the most exclusive hot spots with Nobuyuki Matsuhisa’s premium brand »Matsuhisa«.

Every winter season Badrutt’s Palace’s guests come to enjoy Nobuyuki Matsuhisa’s creations. Three years ago the Japanese master chef changed his restaurant concept in the hotel from “Nobu@Badrutt’s Palace” to his premium brand Matsuhisa and opened “Matsuhisa@Badrutt’s Palace”. It is one of only seven Matsuhisa restaurants worldwide.

Now with a new concept Matsuhisa signature dishes can be enjoyed at a height of 2486 m – such as »Black Cod«, »Yellow Tail Jalapeno«, »Rock Shrimp Tempura« or »New Style Salmon Sashimi«.

The award-winning cuisine of Nobuyuki Matsuhisa skilfully fuses traditional Japanese dishes with Peruvian influences. In the Corviglia pop-up restaurant another new aspect will be food served in bento boxes which can be consumed at one of the 30 seated places or at the Sushi Counter. So »Matsuhisa@Badrutt’s Palace« is offering something refreshingly different high up on Corviglia. The pop-up offers an unrivalled gourmet experience.

While skiers outside are hurtling down the slopes, »Matsuhisa@Badrutt’s Palace« on Corviglia is serving a gourmet experience which is the only one of its kind in the world: the new pop-up restaurant tantalises not only the taste buds but promises a unique atmosphere with its unbelievable setting and view. 

»Matsuhisa@Badrutt’s Palace« in White Marmot is open to guests this winter from 16th December 2017 to 7th January 2018. Reservations are being taken at fb@badruttspalace.com
