I wanted to try Zinc, based on TA reviews, but it is closed on Sundays. Crush is basically across the street, and I was happy to find they were still serving food at 8:45 p.m. While it was a pleasant alternative from eating in a chain restaurant, I can't rave about my experience. Pros: good wine selection by the glass, interesting choices for 'small plates', nice atmosphere. Cons: my sauvignon blanc was served warm, each of the two 'small plates' that I ordered was topped with two slices of bread (I'm not a big bread person, and was looking for something healthy); the sauce accompanying the shrimp was sooooooooo salty that I couldn't finish the dish. Overall, just OK. I'll try Zinc next time...

This is the place for locals, for a cool place for wine of all types, for a great meal with a greeat twist, and for people watching. It is owned by the operators of Zinc, which is located across the street, but not a reservation type establish,ent. During the summer there is a nice outdoor patio along the side. Excellent pastas, small pizzas, some fish specials, appetizers, small plates, always a steak or two on the menu. Portions are geared towards a wine bar menu. Great selection of wines! Always busy.

Good food and atmosphere - shared some small plates.

I would recommend the pasta dish with mushrooms.

They have a nice little courtyard patio. It was too hot for us to enjoy it during our visit.

We wanted to eat somewhere that adults could enjoy in a very family oriented area. The wine list was extensive. You had a choice of 3 sizes to choose from for your wine. The small plates were very good and fun to share. The service was a little slow but it was right after a tornado warning and severe storms had gone thru the area and they might have been short staffed. They were pleasant and we were not in a rush so it was fine. I would suggest if you order the small plates you may want to skip dinner. We ordered both and could not finish dinner. The place is very modern decor and clean.
