This week I’m “liveblogging” my trip to Ukraine. Unlike traditional reports, these posts will be shorter and more frequent.
The SWISS Alpine Lounge in Zurich is not only a chic lounge, but offers delicious food all day long.
SWISS Alpine Lounge ZRH: Culinary Excellence
This lounge is located in Terminal 1, Concourse A at ZRH at the site of a former first class lounge. Unlike the bustling SWISS lounges on the other side of the terminal, this lounge never seems to get too crowded (access is reserved for Star Alliance Gold passengers and Lufthansa Group business class passengers).
I love the decor so much…such a beautiful space with the woodwork and minimalist design.
But what I loved even more than the decor was the food. Such delicious food.
I spent several hours here and enjoyed both breakfast and lunch. For breakfast, I had a frittata with Alpine cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms, and chives. It is placed in a beautiful oven and came out perfect…the sort of egg dish that has the ideal balance of flavors, temperature, and texture.
Before boarding my afternoon flight to Warsaw, I had lunch: a fresh salad with leafy lettuce, beets, red cabbage, and a perfect vinaigrette dressing, a bowl of truffled celery cream soup, and mouthwatering spinach cannelloni made-to-order in the same oven as the frittatas.
What perfect meals. Even the machine-dispensed coffee was excellent.
Fueled for the day, I was ready to proceed onboard my flight to Warsaw and then on to Ukraine.
This is a lounge worth stopping for.
