Having been a Michelin-star success at the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz, Chef Andreas Caminada is opening the second IGNIV venture in St Moritz, Switzerland. With aesthetic plating and setting, Andreas presents culinary artworks at its peak. IGNIV does not disclose its menu on its website, so unless you visit the restaurant, there’s no way of knowing what surprise meal you’re missing out on.
