Il Tavolo, Zurich’s first-ever food festival, features a bit of the Mediterranean as well as Swiss haute cuisine as it takes over the city June 27 to July 1. Numerous five-star hotels and restaurants will participate, offering special menus and delicacies served (mostly) along the lovely Limmat River. Events include an opening night party at the Park Hyatt Zurich (June 27), a gala celebration in the courtyard of the National Museum Zurich (June 30) and a communal family breakfast (July 1). On June 29, executive chef Gion Fetz of The Dolder Grand hotel (Kurhausstrasse 65; 41-44/456-6000; thedoldergrand.com) will cook a gourmet lunch with a group of lucky children ($83; proceeds benefit local cause Pro Juventute Switzerland). All in all it promises to be a feast of not only delicious food but community togetherness as well. “The basic idea behind this summer culinary treat is a simple one: We want to show how much Zurich offers on the culinary front,” says Doris Fiala of Il Tavolo. “The festival’s main aim, though, is to bring people together at its long table to enjoy the specialties of its guest chefs and local kitchen stars alike. We are sure that it will be a truly unique experience.” June 27–July 1; il-tavolo.ch.
