Sushi at the venerable Beau-Rivage Palace? That’s right…Le Miyako Lausanne, under the direction of Chef Hayato Sugimoto, recently Beau-Rivage Palace opened at the legendary Beau-Rivage Palace. “As our belle époque hotel marks its 150th anniversary this summer,” says François Dussart, General Manager, “the opening of this innovative attraction underscores that this is a hotel that is 150 years young, rather than 150 years old.”
