[Zurich] Smoke-free restaurants

We are looking for good non smoking restaurants in the Zurich area. Please help! We are desperately seeking healthy lungs in Switzerland....but it seems so hard to find if you enjoy eating out.

Re: non smoking restaurants

http://www.rauchfreiessen.ch/

search on your kanton and it will list the restaurants with smoke free nights or areas.


Fur Zurich people, see this site on a new referendum:

chutz vor Passivrauchen


Am 26. Juni 2006 haben wir Verena Diener, Regierungsrätin und Vorsteherin der Gesundheitsdirektion, über 26'000 Unterschriften für die Volksinitiative "Schutz vor Passivrauchen" übergeben. Das sind 20'000 mehr, als wir für das Zustandekommen der Initiative benötigt hätten.
Wird die Initiative angenommen, dürfte Zürich der erste deutschsprachige Kanton in der Schweiz sein, der durchgängig über rauchfreie Gastronomiebetriebe verfügt.

Immer noch erhalten wir täglich weitere Unterschriftenbogen; die Zahl der Unterschriften ist inzwischen auf stolze 28'800 angewachsen!
Wir möchten uns bei dieser Gelegenheit ganz herzlich bei allen bedanken, die uns in irgendeiner Weise unterstützt haben!

If you truly are from Virginia, then there is the shame of the public education system in America and the south. Misplaced commas, incorrect word choices and use, overdone exclamation marks. I've not even approached the manner in which it was "said" either. Not a productive way to begin with your first post. Unless, of course, you're a troll.

Re: non smoking restaurants

I would have stopped at the end of the first sentence unless you want to further fuel the (anti)smoking debate, which has been covered many times here and elsewhere.

If you are looking for healthy lungs then simply go lakeside. Many people have exclaimed to me : "Look at the lungs on that !!" or "What a magnificent pair of lungs !" I presume this is what you mean ?

Zurich restaurants going smoke free?

Nimmi Restaurant (my favourite Tamil spot) on Josephstrasse near Langstrasse is now smoke free as of this weekend. The owner told me it was a personal business decision, but that a couple other restaurants in the neighbourhood had also gone smoke-free.

He mentioned that all of Zurich may go smoke-free 2 months from now. That would be amazing.
