IGNIV by Andreas Caminada to open doors at Badrutt's Palace
December 7, 2016: On December 21, 2016, guests can begin to enjoy IGNIV’s Fine-Dining-Sharing-Experience at Badrutt’s Palace Hotel in St. Moritz. Preparations are in full swing in the former Le Relais restaurant.
Andreas Caminada‘s signature will be just as recognizable in the second “IGNIV” at Badrutt’s Palace Hotel as it is at Schauenstein Schloss Restaurant Hotel, even though he will remain working full time at the castle. The focus at the IGNIV will again be on exquisite taste based on a fine dining sharing concept, and on spending time together in a relaxed, laid back atmosphere.
The Spanish architect and interior designer Patricia Urquiola has created a unique, cosy nest atmosphere at the restaurant. With her unique sense of space and textiles she has worked out a feeling of security. The dining room will be flanked by two lounges for the guests to relax and enjoy the atmosphere in before and after dinner. The existing bar will be turned into a kitchen so that guests can watch chefs prepare the dishes. The colour palette has also changed; both the logo and the interior have taken on new fitting hues.
Each of the 18 crew members was carefully selected and trained. The restaurant, which will offer double-seating each night, will be led by talented head chef Marcel Skibba. He currently holds the position of sous chef at Schauenstein Schloss Restaurant Hotel and will relocate during the winter months to the “IGNIV” in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, along with restaurant manager Sylvie Kämpf.
