Zurich's landmark city resort, The Dolder Grand is to unveil a new al fresco lifestyle restaurant — blooms — in June. Situated on the edge of a forest, amid vegetable beds, herbs, and fruit bushes, blooms will provide a relaxing outdoor dining experience, complete with both vegetarian and vegan menus, using the finest organic, regional, and seasonal ingredients.
Headed by Heiko Nieder, Culinary Director & Chef Fine Dining, blooms will offer a unique dining experience in natural surroundings for hotel guests, local residents, and visitors of the hugely popular travel hotspot in the warmer months — the summer- restaurant concept being all about healthy yet highly innovative eating options, addressing the rising global trend of plant-based eating.
Designed like a terrace, complete with awnings, sheltering the tables and kitchen, blooms’s kitchen garden sits up to 36 guests. Light, modern, and simple vegetarian and vegan dishes are served in the flavourful style of The Restaurant — accompanied by summer garden vibes and a glass of grape juice.
‘We are inspired by our kitchen garden — an assortment of vibrant colours, flavours, and tactile sensations. At blooms, many delights will come straight from our own garden — otherwise, we’ll source top-quality products from local producers’ says Heiko Nieder. Meanwhile, Markus Granelli, Hotel General Manager, adds, ‘blooms goes far beyond a culinary offering — it embodies a lifestyle. Now, with four restaurants in addition to seasonal pop-ups, the Dolder Grand firmly strengthens its position as a gastronomic haven in Zurich’.
Weather permitting blooms will be open from June to September. www.thedoldergrand.com
