It used to be that the best restaurants in Zurich chiefly had Swiss food: Delicious, farm-to-table dishes emphasizing beautiful cheeses and meats. Few things are tastier than a good fondue, raclette, or plate of rosti (fried potatoes). You can still find many of these convivial spots, yet these days there’s plenty of other places to eat in Zurich, including first-rate Italian (though don’t miss the Neapolitan pizza at Santa Lucia), Thai, Indian, French and Spanish, like Kreis 6, and Japanese places alongside them. The city also has one of the West’s oldest and best vegetarian restaurants, Hiltl.
