An ever-increasing number of restaurants offer an equally increasing number of exciting food. Zurich-based Restaurant Rechberg 1837 opened in September 2016 and introduces a menu that presents a charming blend of the old and new. Restaurant Rechberg 1837 is run by four friends and started as a culture project. “In 2014, me and three friends ran a culture project that brought us into contact with authentic food made from ancient Swiss crop, plants and farm animals. We were overwhelmed by the taste and wanted to see how far this concept of ancient ingredients prepared in a modern manner would get us. So we decided to present this concept to a wider community,” says Alexander Guggenbühl, co-owner of Rechberg 1837, recalling the restaurant’s beginnings.
