Haya Molcho goes Zurich. But don't worry, she obviously stays in Vienna too. The Israeli-Austrian celebrity chef makes a present to the Limmat city with her coriander, thyme and chutney creations that are served at Neni in the 25hours hotel. Neni - that stands for the name of her four sons: Nuriel, Elior, Nadiv and Ilan. Three of them work for the family business because cooking is a joint ritual for the Molchos. In order to make everything authentically Neni-like in Zurich, Haya has personally trained the kitchen staff around Peter Schüler and even revealed some of her culinary secrets. The former all find their way into the pot and result in an international culinary mix: Persian, Russian, Arabic, Moroccan, Turkish, Romanian, French, Spanish, German, Austrian and Swiss. Put more practically: fennel-pomegranate salad with roasted nuts and stained salmon. Enjoy your meal!
Aura in the Alte Börse in Zurich stands for a restaurant, bar, smoker's lounge and big event hall. It's the work area inhabited by Joachim Karsten, well-known in the city for his work at Tao's on Bahnhofstraße which was given a European-Asian cuisine by him. At Aura in the financial districts it's a bit more meaty - BBQ specials (like blade steak, bison filet or burger) are grilled on the open barbecue in front of the guests' eyes, according to the guests' wishes. Fish lovers' palates are tickled by salmon steaks, zander filets or lobster with tomato-basil-butter. And for dessert (which by the way opens the menu) they serve apple-blueberry-clafouits or caramel flan. This meal wants to be digested well - that's why you head to the second floor of the venue - to the Smoker's Lounge or the bar. By the way, Aura has been furnished by Evelyne Haussener. She is mother of the CEO of the Tao group that - apart from Aura - comprises Tao as well as the clubs Indochine and Icon.
