I travel to Zurich several times a year for work and this past week stumbled upon Tidbits on Falkenstrasse across from the Opera. I was so taken, I ate there three times!
Though I'm not vegetarian, but found this place to be a wonderful alternative to the Swiss/German restaurants that I invariably end up at with colleagues. The crowd is casual crowd and the setting is open, hip and eclectic. Tidbits offers up an outstanding array salads, casseroles and other types of hot and cold dishes in buffet setting. And because the individual platters are reasonably small, attendants are constantly refreshing the buffet with fresh salads and entrees right from the kitchen.
