Lasalle Restaurant, Zurich

Schiffbaustrasse 4
Tel: 44 258 7071's insider take:

This cool glass box inside the Schiffbauhaus—the old shipyard building that's an entire neighborhood-within-a-neighborhood in hip Zurich West—is not just for design fiends, though they certainly helped put it on the map. The food is serious, Italianate, and fish-centric (vitello tonnato; broiled giant shrimp with green curry), but there's also plenty for carnivores (including horsemeat—popular round here—in port wine jus) and for vegetarians. Good wine and long cocktail lists, a cigar menu, and a 25-foot-long communal table help keep the pretensions down and the gemütlichkeit up.
