Zurich, without attracting attention from a gastronomic point of view, will give odds to many European cities. The main message that restaurateurs and chefs broadcast is the use of local products. And this is not a myth! A blue-eyed potato of violet color and a curved shape carrot is not a flaw, but biological products that European farmers and restaurateurs are proud of.
If you have the time and money, then for the New Year’s trip, add Zurich to your itinerary. And we will tell you the addresses where the locals go. You definitely will not be disappointed!

Note. Keep in mind that restaurants in Zurich work specifically. There is a break in the schedule between daytime and evening service.
A stylish restaurant that specializes in French and Mediterranean dishes and seasonal game. Dishes are like a work of art: delicate textures, harmonious taste and thoughtful combination of colors. Checked out, easy and not boring.

Chef Matthew Bacon has developed a small menu that updates every 2-3 weeks, for the past eight years at the restaurant. For dishes, Matthew uses only the best quality products. The wine list focuses on elegant wines from Italy and Switzerland.

Average bill: 45 CHF

The Peruvian Barranco restaurant was created as a recollection of the creative district of Barranco in Lima. Bright graffiti, funny artists, a variety of fruits and vegetables, market flavors and a lot of pisco (a kind of grape vodka) inspired four friends for their own project. Owners offer rare authentic products: turkish delight, purple corn, amarillo peppers, huacatay mint. The menu is based on traditional dishes, as well as bold combinations of Swiss and Peruvian cuisine.
