Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Zurich

Alpenrose
A classic Swiss restaurant Alpenrose is simplicity itself; if you're looking for a relaxed dinner and a genuinely local atmosphere, it's hard to beat
Bederhof
A classic Swiss restaurant in smart residential Enge, Bederhof is a local favourite
Caduff’s Wine Loft
Housed in an old Kreis 4 warehouse, the Wine Loft is a large, light-filled temple to Bacchus
Cinque
A slice of pure Naples, flickering candlelight comes as standard at this popular little Italian
Coco’s Bar and Grill
The antithesis of its rather chi-chi locale, Coco's is a low-key local favourite tucked down an alley off Paradeplatz; in fact you'll have to look pretty hard to find it
Didi’s Frieden
A recent refurbishment gave an extra gloss to this popular Modern Swiss restaurant
Gartenhof
Understatedly cool, Gartenhof is vibrant, local and immensely relaxed
Ginger
With the slogan 'more than sushi', it's no surprise that Ginger has an inventive take on Japanese cuisine, although sushi purists will not be disappointed
Helvetia Restaurant
A local institution, the restaurant at multi-tasking bar-, restaurant- and hotel- Helvetia has a funked up brasserie feel
Heugümper
A step away from Paradeplatz, Swiss fusion restaurant Heugümper has a cosy, laid-back charm that has kept diners coming back for 10 years.
Josef
Les Halles
Famed for moules frites, this restaurant and bar in an old vegetable market is a Zürich institution that's stood the test of time
Münsterhof
A restaurant of two halves; the casual Unten is perfect for a light lunch and foodies will revel in the fine dining Oben's tasting menus
Rosso
With a hidden location and laid-back feel, this vibrant pizza- and Italian restaurant embodies the innovative, irreverent spirit of Kreis 5
Schlüssel
It may style itself as a neighbourhood restaurant, but with a charming, light dining room and excellent seasonal menu, Schlüssel is well worth seeking out
Sternen Grill
The popular sausage joint, the Sternen Grill, offers the best wurst in Zurich from its restaurant and takeaway in the Hochschulen area.
Volkshaus
The perfect place to start an evening of Kreis 4 fun, Volkshaus has a popular bar and an enormous restaurant which turns out inventive Swiss cooking
