Five ladies celebrated Restaurant Week at Zinc and we were all happy! The menu had choices that suited everyone with cocktail specials and yummy desserts! It was very busy with a good vibe. The service was excellent and we would all be happy to return!

I always love this restaurant. It's relaxing and has comfortable booths. Menu is eclectic. The tuna is excellent as are the salads and breads. Nice bar area as well.

Interesting flavors. Vegetarian options. We had an excellent but not outstanding meal. Appetizers like Thai lettuce wraps & grilled shrimp were very good.
