Respond to Review of Hiltl Sihlstrasse
Review: I had dinner with my husband one night and then we had lunch with a friend (who had recommended the place) the next day. The place looks like a very fancy restaurant, impecable... The staff was nice and helpful if slow (although that seems to be the norm in Europe where they seem to be very relaxed). First time I had the Arugula salad and the Casimir. I loved the contrast of the sweet fruits and the spicy rice. Everything was fresh and delicious. My husband had a vegetable platter that looked boring to me but he said was real good. To start he had a Mille Feuille with wild mushrooms (real good!). Next day I had the rice ring with wild mushrooms and my husband had some other fruit/rice dis and my friend had a curry. All was very good. Portions were huge so we were too stuffed for dessert but I've been told is good. Only turn off is the same as all over Europe: everybody smokes but, surprisingly, it was hardly noticeable. As I'm a vegetarian I don't have the problems I have read vegans listing but it appeared to me that there was a good vegan selection.
