Zin American Bistro Restaurant Review

: At the crossroads of Palm Canyon Drive and Arenas Road sits the very intimate Zin American Bistro. Its chef-driven menu features a few Belgian classics, such as carbonnade and three different preparations for mussels, which pay homage to the restaurant's late co-founder. You'll also find robust American dishes like buttermilk-fried chicken, a Zin burger, a “very adult” macaroni and cheese and apple pie, along with bistro mainstays of rabbit in mustard sauce and veal sweetbreads with puff pastry. Solo grazers will enjoy taking their meal at the wooded bar, while larger parties can opt for alfresco dining on the sidewalk patio with its constant parade of passersby. A full bar pours classic as well as creative cocktails, and regular wine dinners have become Zin's calling card.
