This is the brasserie of Le Cerf the Mich ** of Crisci. We had a lunch here that was top quality and a great value. The entry, in the same corridor as Le Cerf is just to the side before you come to the main dining room. The brasserie is tiny, perhaps holding 20 people if full. Light decor, small tables, with distinctive touches including hanging forks and spot lighting that transform an otherwise small room into an intimate one.
You need to understand the concept of the menu here as well, which is really interesting. At least for lunch it works like this. There is a plat du jour that is flat priced at about SFR 20. Then, if you are feeling more adventurous you can try one of the menu "marche" gourmande. These are priced at 55 / 75 / 90 or thereabouts and the main difference is the number of entrees that are included. Then, if you choose, you can simply order a la carte. So the approach is really flexible and I think welcoming; if you are not ready to spend a lot of money you can still get an excellent meal at a competitive price; but if you want, you can move into a much more gourmet experience; all in one space. Congratulations to the chef for giving such choices to the diners!
Our SFR 55 menu came with an amuse bouch; we had entrees of foie gras crusted with pistacioes and a confit of ??, and one of us had a corn veloute with blue cheese, both excellent. We all had beef as a main course, prepared perfectly with potatoes lyonnaise. All accompanied by excellent bread. Cheese plate simple and very good with a gorgonzola; camembert; and something with a crust of rosemary; dessert of a very light strawberry / rhubarb concoction with wafers of strawberry mergingue that melted they were so fine. Of course a great selection of local and imported wine.
Service was casual and friendly.
Compared to what we have experienced all over Switzerland this was really a fantastic meal at a reasonable price.
