*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: The Zeughauskeller on Paradeplatz.

Greetings fellow diners,
What does D stand for? I’ll tell you . . . . `Difficult`
Stumbling forward from the Spring rolls of C and we are well and truly into springtime, faced with the dreaded D.
It was always going to be a problem, this one, due to the dearth of options:
Denmark?
Djabouti??
Democratic Republic of Congo ???
Deutsch . . . . Ah yes, that’s the one.

Well with Swiss and Deutsch having alarming(?) similarities – it’s hard to find a restaurant that is out-and-out German but in the end I opted for The Zeughauskeller in Paradeplatz.
Before you shout `That’s not Deutsche!` I can tell you that any Google search of Deutsche restaurants in Zürich will always pull this place up.

www.zeughauskeller.ch

With April being Easter month and me being away a lot anyway, the options are somewhat limited so I have made the reservation for Thursday 28th.

The table is booked for 19:30 and I have reserved for 16 people – with options to increase that.

Sorry it’s not a Friday this time but I am away on the 29th and the previous week is Good Friday of course.

So confirm your attendance as early as possible. . . . . please respond if you wish to attend . . but do NOT say `yes` and then not turn up. The honeymoon period is over . . . . Next time it’s name and shame.
Looking forward to seeing you all again.
Cheers,
Basher.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

I have increased the booking to 20 people.
The table is booked for 19:30 (please be on time!) and it is booked under the name of Baldock (whoever that is).

Thanks for having chosen 19.30, as 19.00 would have been critical for me, but with 19.30, it looks good

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Basher,

I might be a few minutes late due to a client-related commitment that looks like it's going to end much later than anticipated - unless they "see the light" and let us go
I shall nonetheless be there. See you soon!

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Many thanks to all of you who supported this event - yet again a great and friendly crowd.
Food and service was excellent.
Hope to see some of you or all of you next month when we enter the 'E' zone.

E should be Egypt ! But what about K = Kurdish in Basel
No joke, there are really excellent Kurdish places in Klein-Basel
