tables can only be reserved for groups from 6. We just tried our luck on a Saturday around 7 pm. Of course, all was booked and the chef de service told us we have to wait about 1.5 hours.
As we anyway wanted to enjoy an apéro in the bar of the Widder (one of the most beautiful bars in Zurich – if not in the world. I think this should also go in to the guide “1000places.com“) this was perfect timing.
At 8 pm we got our table, a nice and cosy one right in the middle of the restaurant. There is a big meat buffet as you would see at a butcher when you go meat shopping. The restaurant is not very big but I really like the black and white interior design. AuGust opened in November 2014 and is attached to the Widder hotel – a unique and boutique 5*hotel in the heart of Zurich. The building complex of 9 town houses was converted in the 1970’s into a hotel by famous Swiss architect Tilla Theus.
Now to the food: My first course, the salmon tatar was the best I ever had! Great fish quality and spicy mixed with wasabi and chillies and some secret ingredients…
For the main we took the meat platter. It was very good but too much food for two people. The service person asked us if we wanted to have a doggy bad what we gratefully accepted.
Definitely worth visiting!
