Rundscarpaccio met olijfolie, parmezaanskaas en rucola

Zalm in lasagneblad met groene kruidensaus

If you want to participate to the conference dinner, please write an email to to register before October 6, 2005. You can pay on October 14, but for obvious reasons we would appreciate that everybody who registers also shows up at the dinner! We have chosen a rather economical menu and hope that the price will not stop anybody from participating. We have not included the drinks in the menu so that any person not drinking wine is not paying for it either. To be prepared, here are the prices of some drinks: complete with suitable wines: 11.20 EUR; half liter bottle of water: 3.70 EUR; soft drink: 1.90 EUR; 33 cc beer: 2.50 EUR; coffee/tea: 2.30 EUR.

The restaurant is at walking distance from the station, and hence also within walking distance from the hotels Ascona and Astoria, although the walk is slightly longer (but perfect for digestion).

Here is a list of those who already registered for this celebration dinner. If you want to participate and you do not find your name, then please register. Those taking the vegetarian menu are marked with a (V). Please check whether this is accurately noted below for your name.
