Zürich

I feared its reputation might be justified. I have to eat here before I die, or shortly thereafter.

Although I want to be clear: the venison, for example, wasn't amazingly fabulous the way a similar dish was at Andre Soltner's Lutece. It was only really really good.

 

And eaten underneath a Chagall in the most unpretentious setting you could imagine for such.

Well yes, it’s the history and setting and tradition. I mean the baby pig feet at Botin are not the pinnacle of gastronomy, but they’re good and you’re at Botin.

What I am seeing in most of these posts is that you can eat in Zurich like you eat in Prague, but the execution is much, much better.

 

(I think I have a 90 percent chance of going to Prague again in the spring, and I am very positive about that.)

Prague brings out the vulgar eater in me. The duck or pig may not be great, but it’s five bucks so can I have another one, and another beer.

 

This may be cringeworthy, but it’s when cheap “ethnic” restaurants are serving European bistro food. I may regret this post.

Bet you never went to Doma Na Rohu.  (OK, cheap is relative.)
