Fodor's Review

If you find you're sitting pretty in this trendsetting restaurant, you can always bring your chair home with you. Chef Niggi Rechsteiner allows you to enjoy his culinary creations in a designer space where all the furniture is for sale. Set on the second floor of a swimming pool complex, this lunch-only spot offers plenty of seasonal dishes—grilled pike perch with vegetables wrapped in puff pastry, or pasta with grilled garlic, bell pepper strips, and merguez sausage are two tasty options.
