Ate at this excellent restaurant on soi 19 after noticing it right across the street from our hotel and finding two enthusiastic reviews on TA. It's not conspicuous, but it's well worth seeking out.
We were the only two people in the restaurant the night we ate there. Apparently it does most of its trade with local businessmen, and this was a weekend. But the food is of very high quality, elegantly presented. My wife had the risotto Nero, highly praised by the previous reviewers; it was rich, creamy, and unique in our experience. I had the foie gras, nicely framed by a salad in a parmesan cup, and a scallop. Not a large meal, but succulent. My only complaint would be with the Caesar salad, which lacked the upfront tang of lemon and garlic which one expects.
Zucca calls itself a wine bar and restaurant, and the wine menu features selections from about ten different countries, at a range of price points. I'm not the expert to evaluate the selections, and I didn't notice any of the US and S American wines which we are most familiar with, but we were satisfied with the French cabernet-merlot Bordeaux that we chose. The meal was rounded out with a complementary dessert and some pleasant conversation with the manager. Tourists looking for a change of pace from Thai fare should enjoy sampling from Zucca's eclectic, continental-oriented menu.
