The Saltz restaurant opened at the Dolder Grand hotel in Zurich. Designed by London-based artist Rolf Sachs, the interior of the restaurant uses such materials as neon lights, salt, rock and felt to create an eclectic design.

The restaurant has indoor seating for 102 guests, as well as seating for 80 guests on the terrace, and lounge and bar seating for 46 guests.

The restaurant that is helmed by chef Patrick Hetz is located in the Dolder Grand, a 175-room hotel with views over Zurich and the Swiss Alps that is a member both of the Leading Hotels of the World and Swiss Deluxe Hotels.

The design of the hotel was inspired by the Swiss landscape. Visitors are treated to a variety of atmospheres that invite them to respond to feelings and ideas. Red, blue and gray are the dominant colors, and a 1,100-pound rock from the Swiss Alps hangs from the ceiling of the main dining room on a red climbing rope, creating a focal point in the 3,000-square-foot dining room.
