    The Zum grünen Glas is a nice and in french bistro style upgraded Restaurant. I know the place already more then 40 years. It did develope a lot. In the students time, we did use the restaurant to drink beer :-). The sylvetserdinner was well composed, good offers, nice on plate. We did share the plate, that we could see, what all is available. The knowledge of the waiters in behalf of vine and harder drinks ist quite small. It would be great if waiters would know, that Taggenberg not is on the shore of Zürichsee. It is in the region around west Winterthur. They did offer for dessert a Scheurebe sweetvine. Great offer! Hm, where is the Burgenland where this particular vine comes from? We did explain, where it was growing and the waiter has been a bit surprised. But he was all the time very helpful and friendly. Thanks a lot.
