Japanese and French Fusion – Umami

I love when the summer comes…There are a lot more places to go, enjoy a drink and have an excellent meal… I love the beach clubs, the pool gardens and the great restaurants that pop up throughout the season…

Life becomes as light as the lake breeze…

Talking about an excellent meal… I can never have enough of the sushi prepared at the Umami’s restaurant at the President Wilson Hotel in Geneva.

You will understand why!!

First… it is seasonal… Summer only !!! Run and enjoy, otherwise you must wait a whole year…

Second… location, location, location!!!! At the pool garden of the President Wilson hotel… Invitation to delightful sunny days or stunning moon and starred nights…
