Hg2 : The Hedonist

Rico’s Kunststuben

With two Michelin stars, 19 Gault Millau points and a
reputation as one of Europe’s best restaurants, it’s hard not to have high
expectations when you enter Rico’s Kunststuben (formerly Petermann’s
Kunststuben). You will not be disappointed; it’s a truly superb restaurant.

Hidden within a rather ordinary looking building in Zürich’s smartest suburb, Küsnacht,
is a richly attired, jewel-box of a dining room; a work of art with bursts of
colour from the sleek red leather seats, metallic silver walls and lacquered
red ceiling. But the real art is in the food, every plate a perfect picture of
colour and texture.

Chef Rico Zandonella produces flawless Mediterranean
cuisine; tender scallops on a base of chilli and fennel, crisp-skinned pork
belly with a truffle foam and the truly spectacular vanilla and chocolate
soufflé. All cooked to perfection and served with an abundance of artfully
displayed spiced sauces and foams, blending flavours to delicious effect.

service is as immaculate as you would expect, but with a degree of charming
informality. This may be dining at it’s finest, but the restaurant doesn’t
take itself too seriously.
