The former La Bohème is still French through and through, with a casual menu of cold omelets, straight-forward charcuterie and cheese plates, a hearty oregano-rich Provencal octopus stew, plus a few heavier entrees thrown in for the dinner crowd. For Center City’s after-dinner crowd, Zinc is open late, to address your chocolate pot de crème and cognac cravings.
We have eaten at Zinc several times in parties ranging from 2 to 7 persons and have found the experience delightful every time. The intimate setting and the well-prepared bistro cuisine has turned us into regulars. Our Bastille Day dinner (just off the regular menu) was absolutely delicious. When compared to some disappointing experiences at other well-regarded and more expensive venues, a real bargain. Posted by Nora: Jul. July 21st, 2009 at 10:39 AM
Four of us ate there sat evening. The food was genuine french style bistro and prepared quite well. The service was perfect and ourwaitress charming.
When we left we all agreed we felt like we were in Paris.
A delightful experience. Posted by Richard: May. May 19th, 2008 at 3:26 PM
