A Cozy Neighborhood Spot

Zinc Bistro Wine and Bar is a place that’s perfectly located, and a cute staple of the community. Picturesque in its design and facade, people head to Zinc for good for and drinks, making Zinc similar to a local hangout, in a much more sophisticated manner.

Wine by the Bottle or the Glass

At Zinc, you can order wine by the bottle or the glass, and the menu is extensive. Split a bottle amongst friends or a date, or sample a glass (or two) of one of the amazing selections. In addition to the wine, the restaurant offers a full bar, so you’re welcome to sample something a little more exciting than wine alone. Try a port or dessert wine, one of the house specialities–like the Orange Blossom Martini or the Zinc Sangria–or go with wine for your meal and finish the night off with one of the Java Drinks, like the Irish Coffee or the Nutty Irishman (coffee, Frangelico’s, Bailey’s, and whipped cream).

Refined Comfort Food

If you crave comfort when it comes to your meal, but appreciate something more classy than a hotdog, you’ll really dig the menu at Zinc. Favorite items here include the Bourdro’s Tableside Guacamole, which features dill, orange, roasted tomatoes, Serrano peppers, and cilantro in addition to the traditional avocado and lime. Or, order the chile mac & cheese for your table as a starter, a delicious combination of Asiago, Parmesan, and White Cheddar. As you move onto your main dish, one of the “big plates” of food is sure to satisfy your appetite, and we definitely recommend the Gulf Blue Crab Cakes, the fish and chips, or the Texas Lamb Pappardelle.

The restaurant also has some amazing pizzas, like the fresh and delicious margarita; great salads; burgers and sandwiches; and scrumptious desserts. The best burger is the Devil’s River Lamb Burger, and we love the Ancho Crusted Short Rib Sandwich. For dessert, order the Molten Chocolate Cake. It’s amazing. Chocolate not your thing? Opt for the Artisan Cheese Plate, which is also delicious as a starter or meal accompaniment.

Good for Groups

While the ambiance of this place is fairly romantic, it’s also alive and thriving, making it the perfect place for either an intimate date or a big group of friends. With a great happy hour, it’s not uncommon for this restaurant to get pretty packed, and there’s plenty of seating for even the largest of parties. While a reservation isn’t required, you should plan on making one if you’ll be arriving with a party of six or more, during happy hour, or on the weekend.

Additionally, there’s a great patio, so if you’re looking for an awesome place to eat or drink outdoors on a weekend, this is definitely the place. Open until 2 AM, you’ll love Zinc for both eating and grabbing drinks, meeting new people, or just relaxing with a glass of wine.
