🌟 Five New Two-Star Restaurants:

  1. The Japanese Restaurant at Hotel The Chedi, Andermatt: Under the leadership of twins Dominik Sato and Fabio Toffolon, this restaurant is particularly outstanding. Their culinary approach combines Japanese and European influences, which immediately earned them two MICHELIN stars. In addition, they received the Young Chef Award, sponsored by Blancpain.
