Fork and Bottle Zurich
Fork & Bottle is the kind of top-notch gastropub combining a massive, eclectic collection of seasonal and micro-brewed beers and wines with really delectable artisanal food. The food is really good and you’d have a hard time believing you were getting this delicious American cuisine in Zurich of all places. Their outdoor space is absolutely amazing with a laid back and hip atmosphere. Oh, and you can’t forget the farm animals next door! I like how the emphasis at Fork & Bottle is getting back to quality and technique in their food and drink. Their entire staff is welcoming and just want you to have a fantastic time. Join me for a delicious meal.
It is set in a beautiful open space with an amazing outdoor space with plenty of seats.
The atmosphere, food, and location is the perfect place to kick back with friends, grub, and kick back.
Fun animals right next door!
They have great beers – Hipster Pale Ale and the Sommer’s Blonde Ale. Both were lighter beers and paired really well with the saltiness of the meats. The blonde ale was especially good. We also had their cider which was a fruity yet smooth drink with only a slight alcoholic finish.
We started out with a deep fried bacon that was highly recommend and the warm spinach & artichoke dip. That deep fried bacon was everything and more, it was crispy good with a sweet maple mayo. That deep fried bacon was everything and more, it was crispy good with a sweet maple mayo. The spinach & artichoke dip with local chips was ooey gooey good comfort food. We got the artichoke Deep fried bacon this dish would make any American proud. Succulent bacon is coated in fried goodness. It is crisp and crunchy and is like a refined pork rind. It is no wonder this is one of their most popular dishes because it is such a delectable guilty pleasure. This one was gobbled up in seconds. The spinach & artichoke dip with local chips was ooey gooey good comfort food.
Fish and Chips has really good IPA batter on the fish and I like the large size because it reminds me of fish and chips from London.
The 10-hour house-rubbed pork ribs were the hearty and saucy type of ribs that any BBQ fan would enjoy. There was a good finger-licking balance of fatty meat and it fell right off the bone. Plus, it was massive and the five of us were stuffed from this serving.
This was a very interesting dish that was almost like a pot pie drizzled in a delicious curry sauce and a light salad. A good change for your taste palate.
Soft-shell crab burger was probably one of the best soft-shell crab variations I’ve had. The pillow-like softness of the bread just worked really well with the crunch of the crab. The meat also was fresh and substantial even for a soft-shell crab.
Such a beautiful spread of their delicious foods! We also got the F&B Beef burger, a good solid american burger!
We were so stuffed but had to leave room for dessert! We got the Sticky Toffee Pudding and Deep Fried Apple Pie. The sticky toffee pudding was rich, warm, and delicious. The deep fried apple pie is a popular favorite served with maple syrup, hazelnuts, and cinnamon ice cream.
Fork and Bottle
It’s a rocking great time all around as they’ll be playing all of the hits from the 80s and 90s. Being across the street from a small farm (with cute animals!) and lots of open space means Fork & Bottle is the perfect place for an outdoors brunch with lots of friends just enjoying great food and drink. Inside there are multiple floors and a rustic ambiance for a rollicking great dinner or lunch. For Swiss citizens, this is a great example of artisanal American cuisine done well. For travelers from the States, this is a piece of home if you’re feeling homesick. Definitely recommend Fork & Bottle to all. Plus, they have fun summer concert series and Fried Chicken Fridays!
