The Zurich Museum Exhibition is the first exhibition in which the collections of the Zurich Museum in Switzerland will be exhibited together in Japan. Including Claude Monet's masterpiece "The Water Lily Pond, Dusk," which is 6 meters wide, 74 "masterpieces" by masters such as Cezanne, Picasso, and Dali are on display. About 80% of these are the first visits to Japan, which is a remarkable exhibition.
Limited-time cafes are held at "Cafe Coquille" on the 1st floor and "Brassley Paul Vocule Musee" on the 3rd floor. The highlight is the rare Swiss wine, which is exported to the world only a few percent of its total production.
Swiss are so fond of wine that they are among the top five in the world in terms of annual per capita consumption, and domestically produced wines are not enough, they are imported from neighboring countries. Furthermore, because the production of grapes is restricted to maintain a certain level of quality, the export volume is about 1% of the domestic production volume. There are only a limited number of places you can drink in Japan.
This time, at Cafe Coquille on the 1st floor, you can enjoy a glass of red / white wine for 400 yen, and at Brasserie Paul Vocule Musee on the 3rd floor, you can enjoy a higher-grade red / white wine for 500 yen.
Next, I would like to introduce the food menu. All of the limited menus are based on the works exhibited at the Zurich Museum Exhibition.
Cafe Coquille offers sandwiches "Dreaming Sandwich [Monet]" (680 yen) and "Dreaming Sandwich [Picasso]" (750 yen each) (limited to 50 meals a day).
"Monet" is a palette-style sandwich that vividly creates the impressionist Monet character. It is an image of Monet's "Water Lily Pond, Dusk". On the other hand, "Picasso" is a dish that is based on the image of Picasso's "big nude woman". It is finished with a comical touch.
In addition, there is also a menu in collaboration with the well-established Swiss chocolate brand "Lindt", which was founded in 1845.
"Cafe latte" Rousseau "& chocolate" (400 yen), which is based on the image of Henri Rousseau's "Portrait of Mr. X (Pierre Loti)", expresses an impressive beard with latte art. Served with Linz chocolate.
"FONDANT AU CHOCOLAT" (850 yen) is limited to 20 meals a day. When you insert a knife, the chocolate that overflows is irresistible. The delicious chocolate of cacao is like Linz.
At Brasserie Paul Vocule Musee on the 3rd floor, a special menu "Madai Breze Omar Shrimp Cream Soup with Julienne Regume and Bacon-flavored Turnip Echube" (2,700 yen each) is based on the image of Goch's "Sant-Marie's White Hut". Can be enjoyed. A plate that expresses the "white hut" depicted in the work. The red sea bream, which is savoryly baked and cooked with soup, is soft and goes well with the rich soup of Omar shrimp. It is recommended to combine white wine.
After watching the masterpiece of his first visit to Japan, enjoy a rare Swiss wine. Please spend a wonderful time reminiscent of the 150-year history of both countries that has continued since the end of the Edo period, and the culture and food that have been nurtured about 9,700 km away.
