Unique Eating in Zurich

I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to share my pictures from one of my favorite restaurants to date - Frau Gerold's Garten in Zurich. Set in the trendy Kreis 5 district (with popular stores like Freitag as its neighbor) Frau Gerold's Garten is such a unique dining/hanging out experience! My friend Jen and I scoped it out one evening this summer - and for being fairly new, it was packed with a younger crowd drinking beers, maybe gin drinks from the gin bar, enjoying the evening sun in the restaurants many areas...it was the ultimate laid back after work dinner/drink spot. I was in love and I can't wait to go back.

The draw of the restaurant is that it's built almost like a shanty town with recycled wood, tin and shipping containers (shipping containers are so cool these days, right?!). Also - the star feature of the place is that all possible fresh ingredients (herbs, salads, fruit) that can go in to their daily changing menus are grown right there at the restaurant. J'amazing. And the food did NOT disappoint. I had an amazing salad with chicken/sausage kabob and Jen had this crazy salad mix that involved goat cheese...ok so highlighting food is not my talent, but it was GOOD. The artwork surrounding the garden is by a local artist and on Saturdays the space hosts a flea market. Can I just move in? Set up a tent?

So if you are ever looking for a cool restaurant in Zurich during the spring/summer/fall time...this should be your first stop.
