Holunderparfait mir Truffesschnitte

Brasserie Bernoulli on the outside doesn’t look all that appealing. It reminds more of a concept chain restaurant than a mom and pop shop, but looks can be deceiving. The place feels like a decent neighborhood eatery and a lot of people seem to be from around the Hardturm area. Before dining I had to drive by the former Hardturm and it is always devestating to see how the government decided to tear down a football stadium, before having a comitted plan to build a new one. The menu is obviously geared at a more health conscious and female crowd, which makes me assum this is frequented by mothers in the neighborhood often. Sweetbreads were with fresh spinach leaves and left nothing to desire. I thought the pear puree with scallops and chilli oil to be a nice combination, only drawback was that I hit a nest of chilli flavour and that scorched my mouth. Main course was a bit disappointing, the vegetables and the rhubarb compote was good, but the peas patties were too dry and overcooked. I enjoyed the dessert, an elderberry flan. I liked the ideas of the chef, but since this was a slow night, execution was quite up to par. If I’m in the neighborhood and looking for a non-fancy bite to eat, this is worth a visit:
