    A venue that was the first one in Geneva to do the plate-sharing concept. The dishes are listed on a big blackboard, and the cuisine is contemporary with a blend of classic French, Asian and Nordic influences. Usually around 8-10 dishes to choose from and the menu changes often, and you can also get some charcuterie and cheese from their shop.

    Address: Nietengasse 1, Zürich

    Short Wine List of the Year Switzerland 2021

    The restaurant is linked to a bar with the same name, both focusing on presenting a special selection of wine and food from top producers, rather than on too much mainstream. The appearance of both is rather puristic, reflecting the ideals of chef Marius Frehner and his quality approach on cooking. Not too much ”chi chi”, but just a solid presentation of a great four-course dinner menu. The bar is also always good for a quick stop with some bar snacks, oysters and a nice glass of champagne.

The head chef Thomas Brandner and the host Francie Witter allow the guests to feel like being home, enjoying a relaxed lunch or dinner.
