Your guide to the best restaurants and hotels from around the world
This is one of Zurich's most famous restaurants, and it also serves some of the best cuisine. This celebrity favorite has attracted such greats as Thomas Mann, James Joyce, Joan Miró, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Richard Strauss, and Igor Stravinsky. More recent guests have included Plácido Domingo, Catherine Deneuve, and Yves Saint-Laurent. The restaurant is in a five-story, gray Biedermeier building with gold crowns above the six windows on the first floor. Traditional Swiss cuisine and international dishes are served in the two dining rooms. The decor includes original paintings by Klee, Chagall, Matisse, Miró, Kandinsky, Braque, Bonnard, and Picasso. Regional specialties are served on a trolley and include smoked pork with lentils and bollito misto (boiled beef, chicken, sausage, and tongue). For a main dish, try shredded calves' liver with rösti or filet of sole baked with olives and tomatoes. You may also enjoy bündnerfleisch -- thinly sliced, smoked, dried beef. This is one of the most outstanding and consistently reliable restaurants in Zurich. In the Kronenhalle Bar the specialty is the Ladykiller.
