The Most Memorable Restaurant in Zurich

Media leader Scott Kraenzlein on beautiful restaurants, travel, and sunsets.

Highly subjective takes on life's most interesting experiences.

The most beautiful restaurant experience?

Kronenhalle in Zurich. It’s like dining in a museum.

What was your most surreal travel experience?

We moved to Cairo when I was in my teens. Seeing the pyramids for the first time was pretty overpowering and felt kinda unreal. Definitely one of the Seven Wonders.

The most dramatic sunsets and sunrises?

Manhattanhenge [when the sunsets and sunrises perfectly align with the east-west street grids of New York City].
