Markus Klauser and William Payne operate the business, which was named after the national Swiss flower. Edelweiss’s featured menu item is raclette, a wheel of Alpine cheese that is heated and scraped onto diners’ plates to eat with meats, pastas or vegetables.
Other menu items include Alplermagronen—a Swiss penne pasta with potato cubes served in a creamy cheese sauce and topped with onion crisps—and Zurich Geschnetzeltes mit Rosti—tender bits of beef and mushroom in house-made gravy, served with shredded, roasted potatoes.
Edelweiss is closed on Mondays and open Tue.-Thu. 5-9 p.m., Fri. 4-9 p.m., Sat. 3-9 p.m. and Sun. noon-3 p.m. and 5-8 p.m.
