City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: ATHENA, Sihlamtsstrasse 5, 8001, Zürich

Here’s one for you then . . . . When is a French Restaurant not a French Restaurant?
Yes . . . . When it is an INDIAN . . . . ha ha ha ha ha
The tears ran down my trouser leg, I can tell you.
As last month’s F, faltered into the shape of an onion bahji – we can say a less than fond farewell to the French restaurants. . for now. However – it was good to meet up with some of the Basel crowd – great people J
Good luck to Miss Friis with the A-Z of dining in Basel.

As for us? Get ready now; to step into the land of Syrtaki and Syrtos – well if it was good enough for Anthony Quinn and Alan Bates, then it’s good enough for me!

  • sygirl101
  • Unnamed - Hi Basher, I attended the last A-Z in Basel as a guest and have just now joined as an EFer. Sorry for the last minute, is it too late to join for this evening? Seems like you have pretty full numbers already so if it is too late then that's OK.
RSVP'd No: 7
  • prof. taratonga - REEDS Festival
  • 70sKitch - Sorry Basher, already have something else planned that evening. You really should check with my social secretary before booking these things.

Re: The A-Z of Dining in Zürich

Bump that thread . . . . . calling all newcomers, latecomers, johny-come latelys, `Come, as you are` . . . yeh whatever . . . If you want to join this month`s event . . . sign up soon.
I will be calling the restaurant early next week, to reduce the number of reserved seats.
Don`t say you were not warned.

Re: The A-Z of Dining in Zürich

Hi Basher I'm interested in joining but can't figure out how to work the RSVP bit. Seems the EF website is too sophisticated for me. Maybe you can help out. Thanks,

Re: The A-Z of Dining in Zürich

I have a sort of slow day in a slow week - which is both highly unusual and awesome - anyone fancy a beer at the Rimini Bar http://www.rimini.ch/c-Rimini_Bar/Index at around 6-6:15?

We could then just walk across the bridge and be at the restaurant at 7:30.

Any takers? Let me know!

EDIT: I just realized that the Rimini Bar on Friday opens only at 6:45. I am still up for a pre-restaurant drink. I propose Baradox, which is only a 4 minutes walk to the restaurant according to Google Maps. Takers?

Hi Federica,
I may join you but I have a music lesson from 5-6pm so the earliest I could be there would be around 6:45.
If I am not there by 7:15 . . . . . . then you know I have gone straight to the restaurant.

Re: The A-Z of Dining in Zürich

Thanks again to everyone for joining this event - a very vocal and sociable group!
Special thanks to `Unnamed` (who shall remain so) for coming all the way over from Basel!
Seems that the food quality was variable, based on the feedback. The service was slow starting but I think they were waiting for everyone to arrive . . . and there is a moral there.
As for `H` . . . . I have a cunning plan . . . thanks to a tip-off.
