Seasonal, authentic and close to nature. That is how verve by sven is described by the team. The interior is the first start of this philosophy: natural materials are paired with warm colours and natural touches like a green wall complete the lively and vibrant atmosphere. There is a focus on health and lifestyle, which is combined with a dose of joie de vivre and pleasure. Good food, which makes you feel good. The dishes are authentic and locally inspired. Ingredients from the surrounding Alps are sourced from sustainable agriculture and fair trade.
Highlights from the menu include “Waffle & caviar with brown butter egg yolk cream, topped with Oona Caviar No. 103 traditionel”, “Seared grisons saddle of deer with juniper gravy, celery puree and trumpet mushroom”, the “roasted aitchbone of veal with roasted bread dumplings, a cream of mushrooms and parsley”, or the delicious dessert “sweet potato ice cream with quince and Piménton”.
Verve by sven embodies joie de vivre and combines healthy food with cosy comfort food in a vibrant meeting place with integrated bar. The service is casual but professional, and there is an excellent wine list as well. A place to enjoy life!
