-Old Town, Geneva-
Mission to HQ, Day 2 (see previously 8.046 Grilled Seafood Selections).
In Geneva. Here to attend a Scoping Meeting on the Ethics of Vector-Borne Diseases – Thu to Fri.
Brasserie Lipp is a German restaurant. Founded in Paris in 1880 by the eponymous German owner. Historically famous for saurkraut, along with various beer-friendly meat products (e.g., sausages) – “brasserie” = “brewery,” though the term can also refer to a pub-like establishment. The branch in Geneva opened in 1986, which seems now to place much emphasis on seafood.
The food was amazing. Expertly prepared. Quality beyond reproach. Flavors perfectly balanced. Swift and efficient service – I would expect no less from the Swiss. Best meal of this Western multi-course kind in recent memory (see most recently 7.036 Classic Lobster Newberg).
