The Fifth Day

A gourmet meal is too often an experience reserved for a privileged clientele. We are changing this paradigm by creating an exquisite culinary experience while sharing with the community. Open four days to the public, our chefs offer local and sustainable organic dishes. On the fifth day, the same menu will be offered for free to the less fortunate, identified by our community partners.

The Fifth Day is also unique in that it is the first chefs’ counter in Switzerland with a constantly changing test menu, experimenting with the seasonal tastes of local culture, from farm to table.

Why this concept?

Originally from Milan, Art Curator turned Chef, Walter el Nagar began his culinary journey in his beloved Italy, and went on to develop his craft throughout much of Europe, Mexico and the USA.

Internationally renowned and rewarded for his dynamic and evolving menus, el Nagar chose the way of the ‘Culinary Nomad’ with his pop-up restaurant series that showcased in Los Angeles at the Barbershop Ristorante, Barcelona, Ibiza, Moscow, Tulum and Singapore.

These international pop-up restaurants served as his experimental lab for creativity and technique while crystallizing a distinctive style that bridges his Italian heritage with the taste and sensitivity of a modern global citizen.
