If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Baur au Lac’s Le Pavillon Restaurant is Transformed

Baur au Lac

The Baur au Lac in Zürich, Switzerland — “home away from home” for royalty, presidents and the jet set for more than 165 years, is completing a $50 million renovation. Centerpiece of the transformation is the reinvention of the hotel’s Pavillon restaurant, long a Zürich favorite for locals and visitors. Formerly in operation only in the summer, the Pavillon is now open year-round, taking full advantage of the Baur au Lac’s setting, with views of Lake Zurich. The adjacent outdoor Terrasse has also been transformed into a chic and informal indoor-outdoor space ideal for drinks, dining and people watching throughout the summer period. Both “projects” have been master-minded by Pierre-Yves Rochon. Owned and operated by the same family since it was built in 1844, the Baur au Lac is currently led by sixth generation hotelier Andrea Kracht. The Pavillon features a new menu concept to accompany the new design, best described as “contemporary fine dining” with modern interpretations of classical French cuisine under Chef Laurent Eperon. Sommelier Aurélien Blanc has assembled an inventive wine list selected from the Baur au Lac’s own extensive wine cellar.
