I had the occasion to visit the Zinc Restaurant in the Edmonton Art Gallery. The venue is nicely decorated and the waitress was attentive to our wishes. We started with a bottle of wine which, at $90.00/bottle, was only slightly above regular plonk. A bad beginning. Then the obligatory bread arrived. It was of the white Wonderbread variety only it was in a miniature loaf size and only slightly warmed. You can generally tell what the meal will be like based on the bread served and the meal which I had reflected this reality. For the main course I chose the chicken breast rolled in panko crumbs. It arrived with a minimum of a supporting cast. It tasted like it had been placed in a deep fryer and then patted "dry" to remove the excess oil. Disappointing for $35.00. My two friends tied the sampler platter for $80.00. They stated that it was good--but $80.00--come on!! There was perhaps $10.00 worth of food. I won't be back. High class dining deservs food that is truly a taste experience. If I want a chicken breast there are many restaurants in downtown Edmonton which do it better and at about half the price.
