Zinc Restaurant Review

: Across from the historic New Haven Green, Zinc's chef/owner Denise Appel features a farm-to-table menu that changes seasonally as Appel scours markets and farms for hormone- and antibiotic-free meats and organic produce. Smoked and slow-roasted Berkshire pork, pan-seared barramundi, charred Vietnamese chicken breast and smoked duck Korean barbecue are examples of what you might encounter. The wine list, also seasonal, is chosen to complement the food and features more than a dozen wines by the glass. While you can certainly end your meal on a sweet note, we recommend instead going for the artisanal cheese plate, with three or five different regional cheeses accompanied by fruits, raisin-nut brioche and locally made honey.
