One of the best ways to get to know a destination is through its food scene, and Zurich’s is among the most eclectic and satisfying in Europe. One of the city’s culinary surprises is the elegant and historic Hiltl Restaurant. In fact, Hiltl—which provides gourmet vegetarian and vegan options aboard SWISS flights—has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the first vegetarian restaurant in the world. Carnivores won’t miss their standard fare when typical offerings on the oft-changing menu include hearty soups and flavorful appetizers such as its meatless “Tartar,” and other items from the “Veggie-Butcher.” (Think: Stroganoffs, burgers, and delicious meatless meatloaf.) Meals are rounded out by an excellent selection of regional wines and desserts such as housemade fresh-fruit ice cream and traditional pastries.
