At the Dolder Grand, a new Omakase restaurant is now open called Mikuriya
Just eight diners can be accommodated at this exclusive Japanese restaurant.
Almost every week, it seems like another ultra-exclusive omakase restaurant opens its doors. A Japanese eatery with eight seats has opened at the iconic Dolder Grand hotel in Zurich, helmed by Yusuke Sasaki, who is a talented chef.
Suite 100, a sprawling apartment inspired by rock and roll from the sixties, showcases a guitar signed by the Rolling Stones. Relax on elegant curved leather sofas and chairs as you take in the panoramic views of Lake Zurich and the Swiss Alps beyond through floor-to-ceiling windows.
They watch Sasaki prepare and serve kappo-style sushi as he stands at the counter, looking out at the breathtaking views.
Throughout the meal, Sasaki discusses the inspiration behind each dish, which features wagyu beef and truffles as well as plenty of seafood.
As well as shrimp tempura dusted with matcha salt, King crab and Ikura salmon roe are some of the standout dishes.
With an 18-course meal costing CHF 300 (approx. $326), the Mikuriya experience isn't cheap, with guests paying CHF 300 before drinks.
Mikuriya isn't the only gourmet restaurant at the Dolder Grand. Heiko Nieder's two-Michelin-starred restaurant and The Saltz, a more casual all-day dining option, are both on site.
Mikuriya is open from 7pm to 11pm from Tuesday through Saturday.
