20. November 2010: Restaurant Schmuklerski

| November 22, 2010 | 0 Comments

The Restaurant Schmuklerski is located close to the Langstrasse and easily reachable by public transportation (tram 2 or 3; stop “Bezirksgebäude”). In its vicinity is the Restaurant Don Leone located.

The Schmuklerski is owned by Thomas Bickel, a former Swiss national soccer player.

The restaurant has a really nice atmosphere. The lights are dimmed a bit, the rooms are really high, the place provides you with a feeling of privacy although the tables are somewhat close to each other. All in all, it’s a really nice place optically.

We’ve been brought to our table and the orders for the drinks have been taken immediately. The waiter was really friendly and helpful. We’ve been served by several waiters, including the owner, and it must be said that the service overall was really good – it was friendly, quick, with good timing and pleasant. There were just two little shortcomings which leads to a slight deduction in points: For the desert, I didn’t get an explanation what kind of cheese was served, and we had to refill our wine glasses by ourselves and haven’t been helped by any waiter.

We were served an Amuse Bouche by the kitchen. It was a so-called “Käseschnitte” (basically toasted bread with cheese on top of it), but in this case it also had tomatoes on the bread. It was pretty tasty.

As a starter I went for grilled goat cheese on salad (CHF 14.50).If you eat piece by itself (like cheese only, the nuts only, the salad only) it wasn’t too tasty. But if you put a bit of everthing on your fork and try that, it’s really a great mixture in taste.

As a main course I’ve had the veal chop in a Parmesan crust, accompanied by potato gratin and vegetables (CHF 39.50). The meat in the Parmesan crust was really tasty – totally great. The vegetables and the gratin on the other hand were not really my piece of cake. But the Parmesan crust on the meat, delicious.

Finally, as a desert I’ve had a selection of cheeses (CHF 13.50). As I mentioned in the beginnign, unfortunately, the waiter missed telling us what kind of cheese it was. Also, the selection of cheese was not that persuading – it was only two different cheeses.

All in all, the Restaurant Schmuklerski has a great atmosphere, very friendly waiters with some room for improvement, tasty food and the prices are okay – it’s not really expensive but it’s not really cheap either. It is definitely worth going but personally I’ve expected still a bit more.
