A pretty little restaurant at the end of one of the pedestrian bridges crossing over the river. The patio seemed filled more with coffee drinkers at noon but a few diners ventured inside. The staff was young and friendly (she was pushing for us to go on a city apple wine tram) which made it feel less formal than the setting would have prompted. I imagine dinner is a bit different.
At lunch a limited but reasonable menu is offered and it allowed us to sample Mario Lohninger’s cuisine. Everything was fresh and good but nothing lived up to the deliciousness of the menu descriptions. The vanilla cooked white asparagus was a very interesting twist, but one that grew tiresome to me. The batter on the tempura was crisp and light but on the schnitzel it was soft. In fact the veal could have been pork for all the distinctiveness of taste it showed. Hollandaise was a wonderful savior for the entire plate. The special dessert pancake was different than anything I’ve had and for what it was it was fine, but I would have preferred it to be sweeter. In summary, nothing bad but also nothing great.
