Josef restaurant Zurich
osef restaurant Zurich

Small plates of fancy deliciousness in trendy Zuri West.

Josef is one of Zurich's more avant garde restaurants. Don't come here looking for würst, cordon bleu and rosti. For dinner, the seasonal menu features small plates (they reccomend three per person for normal hunger but we were left a little peckish) or there's the Josef Menu of five dishes that's better value, but you don't get to choose them. The space has a good ambiance, with its closely packed tables, pearlescent-tile ceiling  and a back wall adorned with arty posters of 70s movie stills. The lunch offering is more traditional with dishes such as roast veal for around CHF23.50 or pasta at CHF15-20. There's also a bar area with a goos selection of wines on offer. A great spot to start your evening out on and around Langstrasse and/or to impress your date if you're into cool food with a twist.
