Conveniently situated in Seefeld just a short distance from Tiefenbrunnen station, lies Restaurant Musigny. With its French name, great selection of wine (they stock over 1,000 bottles from 400 producers), much of which hails from Burgundy, this restaurant exudes a real flavour of France right in the heart of Seefeld.
We visited on a Friday evening and as a group of three, two of us chose from the Surprise Menu (Überraschungsmenü) and I went à la Carte. The Surprise Menu consists of four courses and is served in the evenings only. It represents very good value and each course we tasted was well presented, well seasoned and extremely tasty. When ordering the Surprise Menu it is a good idea to advise the waiter of any preferences or allergies e.g. if you don’t eat fish or meat etc, and they will cater accordingly.
After starting with a nice glass of Burgundy wine, we were presented with some lovely bread and a delicious cheese spread along with some crispy fried rice balls. The restaurant is modern and bright and nicely furnished with comfortable seating, low lighting and a chic decor.
For starters I chose “Gebacknes Ei” which is a deep fried egg with a crispy shell presented on a lemon, potato purée and served with truffled mushrooms. As you break into the egg, the yolk flows over the potato and as well as tasting divine it is also quite stunning to look at.
From the Surprise Menu the other two were served Rindstatar and the smoked fillet of salmon with pickled vegetables and dill oil. Both were beautifully presented and very tasty – though I think the egg really stole the show for pure theatre!
The Surprise Menu then had an extra course of Burrata Ravioli (below) filled with sautéed mushrooms and served with cherry tomatoes and pecorino cheese – both colourful and really tasty.
All the main courses were very good and we enjoyed each one – we had braised veal cheeks, roast lamb and pan fried perch in a saffron broth.
Our favourites were the roast lamb rack which was divine,and the Braised Veal Cheeks – so tender and delicious! The lamb was served with a puree of smoked beans and cherry tomatoes and crisp polenta and the portion size was just right.
The braised Veal Cheeks or “Geschmorte Kalbsbäckchen” was served with fried bone marrow and celeriac mash and spring onion was so tender that it just fell away and you could eat it with just a fork.
We really didn’t need desserts but they were too tempting to resist. I went for the lemon sorbet and fresh citrus fruit which was light, refreshing and delicious (and home made!) while the other two went for a warm poached pear with chocolate and rum ganache (see below) and the cherries with cherry sorbet and Greek yogurt. Yummy!
The Überraschungsmenü costs CHF 79 per person and is available during the evening. If you love wine there is a great selection and the staff are both friendly and enthusiastic. We really enjoyed our dinner at Le Musigny – it’s a great little restaurant – and we will definitely be back!
