Culinary traditions are honored in Zurich, and visitors shouldn't miss out. While there are plenty of restaurants in the city offering Swiss dishes, the Restaurant Kronenhalle (4 Ramistrasse; +41-44-262-99-00) not only serves the classics, but dishes them up with a side of history. The elegant dining room and bar has been one of the city’s preferred meeting points for artists, writers, designers, and architects since 1924. Spuck doesn't even look at the menu when he's at Kronenhalle. The only thing to have here, he suggests, is Zürcher geschnetzeltes, tender sliced veal prepared in a creamy white wine sauce, served with crisp rösti potatoes. Wash it down with one of the locally-made Swiss wines on offer.
After a night of rehearsal, Spuck heads to Du Théâtre (20 Dufourstrassse; +41-44-251-48-44), for its convenient location to the theater, as well as its cozy atmosphere, and Mediterranean-Asian fusion cuisine. The menu is globally inspired, where appetizers run the gamut from yellowtail ceviche to preserved sardines, or a main course of veal carpaccio served with wasabi-mayonnaise. For a Moroccan flair, both in flavor and atmosphere, there's Maison Blunt (5 Gasometerstrasse; +41-43-211-0033). Inside, there is a restaurant on one side, and tea room on the other; but the best seat in the house is on the leafy terrace, where the royal plate (a selection of 12 different mezzes) is a feast fit for a king.
