Are there any sushi aficionados?

From July 15 to 17 – Sushi Festival at YOSHI

Yoshi, Joël Robuchon’s first Japanese restaurant, which was recognized by the Michelin Guide in March 2010, will play host to the team from Sushi Saito for three days for the Sushi Festival. Sushi Saito is one of the four sushi restaurants in the world that have been awarded three Michelin stars.

The sushi master, trained by sushi master Takashi Saito, will offer a selection of sakes with lunch and dinner. The sushi will be served exclusively at the bar of the YOSHI restaurant. Guests wishing to extend their meal are invited to try dishes on the menu, seated at a table.
