Silver 7132 - Fine Dining in the Swiss Alps
People travel to the little mountain village of Vals deep in the Alps of Switzerland for the thermal baths: 7132 Therme & Spa designed by famed Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. But to that you should add another reason to visit: Sven Wassmer and his two Michelin stars and 18 Gault&Millau points that he and his team are showing off in the Silver, the restaurant of the thermal baths hotel 7132.
Btw, I stayed in the wonderful Brücke 49, see my report here.
But now: enjoy the show!
The hotel lobby and restaurant were tastefully decorated for the upcoming Christmas festivities.
I opted for the 9 course degustation menu with wine journey.
This multi-course amuse-bouche was delivered by different members of the kitchen team, which was a nice touch.
The best butter you are ever gonna have. Retrieved every morning from a local farmer, never a day old, it tastes how nature intended (an I usually don't like butter).
1st Course - Silver Waffle
2nd Course - Scallop
3rd Course - Saibling
4th Course - Pigtail
5th Course - Langoustine
6th Course - Raclette
7th Course - Highland Beef
8th Course - Grapefruit Sorbet
9th Course - Beetroot
The outdoor fumoir had a cosy fireplace, unfortunately the walls didn't hold the cold back. It must be nicer on an alpine summer night.
|Gault&Millau||18/20 / 3 Hats|
|Verdict||Perfection. No dish disappointed here. The fantastic wine journey with a lot of excellent Swiss wines and the warm and friendly service topped it all off. For me it's rather gold than silver.|
