THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Le Petit Zinc Restaurant Review

: Le Petit Zinc is the Westside's newest French bistro, and if it weren't for the proliferation of SUVs on Wilshire Blvd., you'd think it was Paris (maybe Seventh Arrondissement). There's everything you could want in a neighborhood bistro: dark woods, Art Deco posters, oversized brass chandeliers, woven bistro chairs, friendly ambience and moderate prices. The house specialty is the delicious grilled entrecote with the thinnest, crispiest, hottest frites one could imagine. The other entrées are beautifully prepared and soul-nurturing, but this is classic bourgeois cuisine, not haute. The kind of place local French flock to, leaving other bistros to tourists.
