Before taking a late flight to Fiji from LAX we wanted to be sure we ate some non-airplane food before leaving! Zinc was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. We made reservations online before going to LA. They gave us a nice high table outside which allowed us to do some excellent LA people-watching! We shared fried calamari and a pizza and both were very good as was the wine we didn't share! Our waiter was the right combination of friendly without being intrusive and it was a very pleasant experience that I wouldn't hesitate to repeat.
