The hilltop village of Cologny is Geneva's Beverly Hills with a view, and this sleek sophisticated spot takes full advantage of its real estate. Burnished-silk walls and picture windows frame the sun setting over the lake and Jura Mountains in the main dining room, and the second-floor lounge-bar looks south toward the city. Strategically placed orchids soften the enormous portrait in the lobby and the shaded outdoor patio-terrace floats under a blue sky and above the
herb garden. Seasonal cuisine by local celebrity chefs Gilles Dupont and Tommy Byrne is modern, light, full of Asian accents, and artfully presented. The bistro next door shares the restaurant's kitchen, but not its prices.
