Meeting Point: Frau Gerold

Hi all, as a tribute to healthy food - and thanks to the excellent recommendation of Prof. Taratonga, I would like to propose this restaurant for our next lunch appointment:

Frau Gerolds Garten
Geroldstrasse 23, 8005 Zürich
http://www.geroldgarten.ch/

Looks like a really cool outdoor spot, just opened recently. If the weather is bad on the day, we can change accordingly. Just monitor this thread for updates!

Cool article about the place here.

Hope to see many of you!

Hi all, I moved the date up one week, as I was able to shift around some other commitments, so it is this Friday.

I am really looking forward to trying the place out, looks awesome from the pics!

Re: A Taste of Garden - Lunch in Zürich

For the ones that have to plan their budget, do you have any idea of the price range?

Hi Coco, unfortunately I have no idea, I've never been there and the website is silent. However, from the article linked, there are some pictures and there is one that shows the daily menu (of that day) where I see a range of prices going from CHF 7 min to CHF 19 max for a dish. Sorry not to be more helpful!

Re: A Taste of Garden - Lunch in Zürich

A pretty cool place indeed, like straight out of a movie, or like being in Berlin. Thanks again to Prof. T. for the recommendation (by the way, hope all is well - you were missed!) and many thanks to everyone who came!

Excellent company, we should definitely go back for evening drinks sometimes and try the downstairs ambiance.

And guess who is working there? Our favorite, very talented, former bartender from the Viadukt!!!

As far as wine and chocolate cake...next time, when I don't have a lot of work in the afternoon!

Re: A Taste of Garden - Lunch in Zürich

Definitely somewhere to go back to go - cosy Zürich hipster vibe with fresh herbs downstairs, post-industrial apocalypse vibe upstairs. Still savouring the chocolate cake flavour. Thanks to everyone that came for a great lunch, and to prof. taratonga for the tip!

Re: A Taste of Garden - Lunch in Zürich

The place is really cool, a green oasis in the midst of industrial desert. While we were relaxing with a splendid view over the rail tracks, I was reminded of a Czech comedy, The Tales of Ordinary Insanity (Wrong Side Up). The main character works at an airport at a dead-end job, loading up boxes or something, and spends his time daydreaming. I remember a scene in which he was staring at the panorama of plane runways in front of him and sighing, ‘Oh, it looks like at the seaside here.’ That was us today, daydreaming in the middle of the city. Thanks, Boker Tov, for organizing.
