*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Churrascaria Rincão, Freischützgasse 14.

The A-Z of dining in Zürich is a concept of visiting one restaurant in Zürich every month; each month being the theme of the Alphabet.
With the January inaugural experience being A, we enjoyed a great meal and great company at the Abysssinian restaurant last week.
So as this hopefully long-running event slips easily into 2nd gear, we head into February . . . . . and B.
Therefore I have booked a table (for 16 people but I could increase it) at the Churrascaria Rincao BRAZILIAN restaurant - details below:

www.rincao.ch
Churrascaria Rincão
Freischützgasse 14
8004 Zurich

They have a really great menu - plus exotic SAMBA shows . . maybe there are one or two of us that could join in . . . yes I could think of someone

The date is friday 11th February and the table is booked for 8:00pm
If you wish to register please do so below.
However as we had a lot of last minute cry-offs last friday, I would ask you to PLEASE send me a PM of you are unable to come (I am notified of these) - do not just de-register yourself.
I had to cancel a table for 6 people on friday and we were lucky that they were not booked up and so we (I) got away with it.
I do realise that many of us are busy and unforeseen personal or business issues can crop up at the last minute - but if you think there may be a problem, then ask for my mobile number before the event and then you can contact me directly.

Lets get it on for February... SAMBA
RSVP'd Yes: 14 (12 members and 2 guests) RSVP'd No: 7
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

In the evening it's just the 55CHF/person as far as I know.
That price does not include any pink balloons!

Re: The A-Z of dining (in Zürich)

I gotta be honest now...55Chf plus another x amount for drinks is somewhat steep...and as much as I love meat and all you can eat venues, that price seems hardly justified to me. Now I don't want to be a party pooper...but are there any other options?

Maybe give them a call to find out and let us all know? Thanks Bromie .

I would do but as I've just finished that second "Magnum" it's best not to be calling anyone, anywhere tonight after that!

Re: The A-Z of dining (in Zürich)

I apologize for jumping ship like that..but I will join the curry event in Lenzburg instead as the price isn't as steep. I hope you guys enjoy this event and look forward seeing everybody on the "C".

grilled, I suppose ! just what somebody ought to do in Zurich with all those doves ! A new tourist attraction : Doves-Grill AG, serving doves directly from the Grill. Imagine Doves-Buffets in major hotels like the Marriott, the Hyatt and the Intercontinental

Re: The A-Z of dining (in Zürich)

Thanks Basher for organizing this.

It was a nice evening and great meeting so many "new" EFers, in addition to hanging with those I've met already. I ate way tooooooooo much and am still feeling full .

Looking forward to next month's A-Z dining experience. .

Thanks Basher for sorting this out - we had a great night, was nice meeting new people, trying random meat. Food was nice, company was better. Can't wait for "C".

Thank you basher for organizing and all the nice people for making it a great night out. Now for "C" (or does it qualify for "T"?):
