Zug, situated on Lake Zug halfway between Lucerne and Zurich
, is the Delaware of Switzerland
. The low-tax expatriate enclave of Switzerland is a favorite of multinational corporations, but few people know about this scenic mountaintop restaurant overlooking the lake and city. It has the usual Swiss standbys: cordon bleu, schnitzel, bratwurst in brown onion sauce. Their house fondue, however—flecked with bacon and laced with alcohol-free unfiltered apple cider—offers a fruitier and smokier alternative to the more typical kirsch-and-wine-laced fondues. It’s also kid-friendly, and versions without bacon can be made for Muslim and vegetarian visitors.
