Mapplr’s favorite restaurants in Zurich

Mention Zurich to frequent travelers and two words come to mind: boring and expensive. Fortunately, much has changed in the past few years to make the city a bit more exciting, with more dining choices for people who aren’t in town to visit their private banker (although given the credit crunch and the disastrous financial results of Union Bank of Switzerland, private bankers may be reading this post, too). One of the most innovative concepts in dining is Blindekuh (German for blind cow). I won’t ruin the surprise; visit their website which is listed below. And when the weather permits, Seerose, on the lake, is the perfect place to hang out.

Here are my favorites in Zurich. If you have anything to add or subtract, post it in the comments section.
