Restaurant Mesa, Zurich

Weinbergstrasse 75
Tel: 44 321 7575's insider take:

Young chef Chris Trewer recently left the Eden au Roc, for whom he'd won a pair of Michelin stars, to open this spare, elegant place with its textured golden cork walls, dark wood floor, and black and cream upholstered chairs. The plan is simple: everything fresh. The kitchen's style is kind of Southern Italy meets Southern Germany, with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients: Fish are filleted at table; risottos are cooked to order; in summer there might be iced cucumber soup with shellfish and rack of lamb with gnocchi and ratatouille; fall features game and truffles. Always there's house-baked focaccia and grissini; crème brûlée, and panna cotta. In summer, try for one of the tables in the cute garden.
