Zurich, Bern, and Lucerne-restaurant recs for late April

We will be going to Zurich next week on our way somewhere else and intend to tour Zurich, Bern, and Lucerne while there. I am looking for lunch and dinner recommendations. I also noticed an inquiry as to whether or not the spargel season had started in Germany yet. Do they by any chance get that great white asparagus in Switzerland in the spring?

  1. The asparagus in Zurich now are not worth eating...the local stuff is not available yet. They're bringing asparagus in from Peru, USA...

      I agree. Not worth it. When does the local spargel pop up in Zurich? (I'm new to Zurich, from NYC.)

        did you find anything good in Bern.. just arrived and had a nice sandwich at adrianos, but being a student want to find some traditional stuff at a reasonable cost.
