Schluessel on Seefeldstrasse has a very nice website, which made me curious to checkout the place. Crisis, recession, TARP programs and all, we must all make an effort to stabilize private consumption. Since I only got a corner table for a thursday night even though I made the reservation on a tuesday, I can confirm that Zurich locals are doing their part. The menu has a couple of interesting things and a nice selection of changing specials. Quite friendly it reminds of a little lower key version of Stef’s Zentraleck. I had a nice risotto with Moenchsbart, it was okay. The next dish was better. Roasted calf cheeks with bacon and mashed potatoes. Honest, simple dish, yet poaching cheeks takes a lot of time. I’m a big fan of places which server offal products. I personally like more butter in the mashed potatoes, but assumed that this was a concession to some of the diet crazy female clientele. Dessert was a simple sorbet citron with wodka, a real manly thing, since flambeed dessert lose the alcohol and this one doesn’t. Three of us incl. a bottle of wine, aperitif and water:
