Bistrot Zinc Restaurant Review

: Romantic, comfortable and très bistro in feel --- from the snappy tile floor to the zinc bar and café tables --- this place toes the line without so much as a waiver. The French onion soup is quite good, as are the herbaceous mussels and the comforting roasted chicken. And the bouillabaisse, when available? It’s one of the better versions you'll come across. Lunch brings on more classics --- a decent croque monsieur with very good frites, for example. Tables near the kitchen door should be avoided (unless you are into watching the kitchen happenings).
