Black and white tiling, industrial style lamps and an open kitchen: the Au-Gust definitely looks stylish. But it's not only looks - the food is a treat too. They major on meat, not on steaks like everyone else but on cold cuts, sausages, terrines, carpaccios and innards (well, beef filet is available too). Our fleischkäse (Swiss style meat loaf) was bursting with flavour. We’re not usually passionate about innards, but the tripe Zurich style with its spicy sauce changed our minds on this one. They also serve platters, so you can try many of the different edibles they have on offer. No reservations - in case there is no space, you can simply wait in the in-house Widder bar until they call you.
