Chef at Coco Grill & Bar Zurich
There’s a beautiful restaurant just off Paradeplatz in Zurich called Coco Grill & Bar. Although it’s right in the centre of Zurich its an almost hidden oasis and if you walk too fast from Paradeplatz into Bleicherweg you’re likely to miss it. This charming and secluded restaurant occupies a perfect spot, cloaked under ivy and trailing green foliage and is an absolute find!
We were invited to a dinner to formally introduce Michel Péclard ‘s new chef at Coco, Patrick Frischknecht. After working abroad for many years under the tutelage of well known Swiss and international chefs such as Daniel Humm in New York, Gordon Ramsay, Antonio Colaianni, Reto Mathis, “Frischi” the 29 year old Swiss chef is now back in Zurich at the Coco Grill & Bar.
It was a balmy end of August evening and the tables were laid out in the beautiful garden.
After an Apéro with some tasty amuse bouches which included tomato burrito ice cream in tiny cornets, fried chicken feet and crispy open sardine sandwiches (pictured below), we enjoyed a delightful alfresco dinner.
On the menu we had scallops with smoked potato foam and caviar, (cooked by Stefan Jäkel), followed by grilled monkfish with ash vinaigrette and leek dumplings.
There was also Appenzeller duck cooked four ways as well as delicious roasted vegetables – and each course was served with a different and very delicious glass of Soutiran champagne.
Many of Zurich’s top chefs were present for the dinner including Antonio Colaianni, Jacky Donatz, Irma Dütsch, Stefan Heilemann, Nenad Mlinarevic, Stefan Jäckel, Stefan Wiesner, Felix Eppisser, and Tobias Buholzer.
