If you would like to get off the Riverwalk for a great meal, try Zinc. Just a two bock walk, you can dine indoors or out. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great.

We went for snacks and drinks and loved the courtyard atmosphere. It was cold out so they had the outdoor heaters running. The guacamole was delicious! We also had crab cakes which were flavorful and light!

Stopped @ Zinc after attending an Octoberfest party a friend held at his downtown condo. Zinc has always been a favorite of ours for its ambiance, its courtyard, and its extensive menu of yummy food and delicious wines. This visit was yet another wonderful experience....More

Our chefs have painstakingly created a menu of wine-friendly fare consisting of old world hors d'oeuvres and regionally inspired tapas. From baked Texas goat cheese with kalamata olives to fresh chocolate covered strawberries, the menu caters to the diversity of the food enthusiasts.
Charles Court, at the rear of Zinc, is a truly serene gathering place for a rare outdoor experience. The private, spacious courtyard makes for a quiet sanctuary from the clatter of downtown city streets and the Riverwalk.
