Hi Bellevue 163-
<<"Zürich Geschnetzeltes (veal meat-and-mushroom-cream sauce served with Rösti (potatoes)">>
Sometimes abbreviated Züri Geschnetzeltes, they can be found at many restaurants throughout Switzerland. Some versions are rather uninspired.
The best versions that I have had in Zürich were at the Kronenhalle- very high end restaurant - and Restaurant Neumarkt, at Neumarkt in or near the Niederdorf. Also quite good at Drei Stuben-
which serves other traditional Swiss food.
The version at the Zeughauskeller is pretty good. They will offer it with their potato salad, which is good. It is absolutely traditional to serve "Zuri geschnätslets" ( dialect) with Rösti. So, Zeughauskeller is violating that standard, and, to make amends, if you ask for Rösti you can get them. I find their Rösti to be lacking in flavor...perhaps cooked too quickly with some potato starch added for crispness.
The Rösti at Neumarkt are fine and are excellent at Drei Stuben..
Please check this thread for some Zürich ideas:

You will find a place near Bellevue. ;-)
We've mentioned Rösti. To an American, that is "hash browns" but the Swiss have raised that common food to a high art, as in Butterrösti. They are served in many ways ...plain, which I prefer... and with all kinds of add-ons.
Several types of lake fish are served throughout Switzerland, especially at lake shore restaurants.
One that I particulary like is Eglifilets" - small filets of perch, best prepared meuniere. You will commonly find them in "im Batterteig" - breaded.. and deep fried. That kind usually come from a source outside Switzerland and are absolutely worth avoiding. In fact, it is extremely rare to fnd Eglifilets that actually come form Switzerland. Poland and Iceland are common sources. They can be quite good., but the real thing from Switzerland is worth a premium, if you are at a high quality place that you know to be reliable.
Near Zürich, and at a few other places not far from there, you will find a very local white wine called Räuschling. Rather acidic for a Swiss wine, and goes particularly well with Eglifilets meuniere.
Cheese dishes -
Raclette and Fondues are common. Also in the parts of France near Switzerland.
In Zürich, the very popular restaurant Swiss Chuchi at the Hotel Adler serves a large variety of Fondues and Raclette.
They even serve Capuns, a food from the mountainous regions of Kanton Graubünden. I've not developed a taste for them, but they are certainly "Swiss" ;-)

In Luzern, a local specialty is Luzerner Pastetli. In dialect, Lozärner Chögelipastete.
Foer a bunch of pictures, do a serch with Google for Luzerner Pastetli.
The dish is particularly well done at the Restaurant Schiff, beside the river under the arches, or on ground floor and balcony.

Many kinds of meat can be used. The version at the Schiff uses Kalbsvoressen ( the first stomach of a calf) and includes saffron. Sweetbreads ( "Kalbsmilch") are sometimes used.
In Wengen, Hotel Schönegg has a well known gourmet kitchen... and is not cheap.
Here is some other information, including restaurants, about Wengen:
On the Rigi, not far from Luzern, I'll be trying this one this year:
