Bistrot Zinc, Chicago, IL

Bistrot Zinc Restaurant Review

: From the tiled floor to the zinc bar and wooden café tables, this Gold Coast institution exudes a classic French bistro feel. That said, expect a hot and cheesy French onion soup for starters as well as herbaceous mussels and a consistent, comforting roasted chicken. When available, the bouillabaisse showcases fresh seafood and shellfish while the croque monsieur with hot and crispy frites has become a neighborhood staple.
