Rechberg 1837

What they say

“Our wish is to create dishes from local products which were available in Zurich in the early nineteenth century. That’s where the name Rechberg 1837 derives. We work closely with small, organic farmers from the area, who specialize in old breeds of vegetables and animals. With a leaf-to-root approach, a strict no-waste policy, and a selective choice of producers, our team ensures responsible handling of the environment. As part of our cultural programme, there are concerts held at the restaurant every Saturday.”

Signature Dishes

Barthuhn chicken with couscous, charred lettuce leaf and pickled onions; Brachsme; and pumpkin with sheep’s milk ice cream, pumpkin seed crumble and local juniper berry granite.
