Re: The A-Z of Dining in Zürich

I have to close the subscription as we are only guaranteed 20 places as written above. I will try to squeeze the additional 2 people in. Please PM me if you can't make it to the event or if you want to be placed on the waiting list.

Deadline for ordering the Menu is March 20.

Re: The A-Z of Dining in Zürich

I would almost join, was it not that a friend who is leaving for NYC for two years has his goodbye party that evening, thus probably the next time, as good food and pleasant people is always a good thing

Re: The A-Z of Dining in Zürich

Basher, you were missed last night. The Prof did a wonderful job in your place though

The food was amazing The caesar salad actually had anchovies and garlic in the sauce, the steak just melted your mouth, I was a bit dissapointed by the cheesecake.. it was more Swiss style than NY style (too much gelatin),but who cares as the best of all was THE COMPANY!
I had a great time with you all and hope that you made it to your respective homes with no issues.

Looking forwards to O!
