When the temperatures dip, head straight for Stable. Transporting diners to the Alps, this warming and proud pearl is replete with exposed wood beams, cozy lighting and Swiss flags. It exudes that classic Alpine lodge feel, even if you’re more aprés-office than aprés-ski. Stable is the city's first and only Swiss retreat, so arrive with a crew to tuck into raclette fondue-with boiled new potatoes, topped with cheese and coupled with cornichons. Cream, butter and starch are the soul of this kitchen, not the exception, so don't expect a light meal. Having said that, veal Zurich in a mushroom-cream sauce is hearty enough to chase the chills away. Garnished with fried onions, cheese spaetzli then forms the very picture of comfort food through and through.
