City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: Pfingstweidstrasse 6, 8005 Zurich

Hi all, thanks to the suggestion of Hobs here, let's try out this place.

Moules = mussels (French), but I see they also have other foods (meat, vegetables, pastas, etc.).

Hope to see many of you there!

Les Halles
Pfingstweidstrasse 6
8005 Zurich

  • c123 - Not sure it's feasible for me, will have to check. Bloody cheek charging 3 extra CHF for the chips, I mean it's 'Moules-frites'... Will have major issues choosing if 'Pave au poivre' or some sort of other 'steak-frites' is on the menu too...
RSVP'd No: 2
  • venice - Unfortunately, I stupidly manoeuvred myself into boysitting activity...
  • Sagitta - Babysitting my parents:)
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

No? - Oh ok, too bad.




Slightly OT, has anybody had the chance to savour Les Halles in NYC (Anthony Bourdain's spot)?

I only have an hour for lunch and I have a crippling fear of merging the internet with the real world.

It happened several times that I had to get up very suddenly, pay my share, and run back to some fire (figuratively) in the office. So really, you stay as long or as little as you want - no pressure.

As for the internet vs the real world...we don't bite!

Not all the time, at least

Bring the boys along if you want, Les Halles might be a cool place for them to check out

There's generally a few equally delicious non-moule lunch options.

Re: A Taste of Moules - Lunch in Zürich

Hi all, you have until tomorrow to subscribe yes

For groups bigger than 3, reservation is a must and they want it at least 24 hours ahead, so to be on the safe side, I'll call a couple days prior.

Yum, moules!
