Zinc Opera Restaurant Review: Frédéric Vardon presides over this offshoot of 39V, a commendable restaurant just off the Champs-Elysées. In this modern brasserie near the Palais Garnier, patrons indulge in a quick bite at the bar or a roguish meal in an uncluttered dining room. Patronized by Vardon, the young Franck Bérubé prepares seasonal dishes, both simple and appetizing. Expect a farm egg in spinach cream, a hearty Black Angus flank steak drenched in pepper sauce with french fries, and a creamy rice pudding. The menu is complemented by courses that change every day, such as bœuf bourguignon or lacquered salmon. Many wines by the glass are suggested and contribute to the friendly atmosphere.
