Zinque, Venice, CA

Zinque Restaurant Review

: Zinque's dimly lit space with vaulted ceilings has communal tables in its center, while smaller tables and banquettes rim the edges of the room. Exposed Edison light bulbs and a plethora of candles add a soft glow to the dark blue-colored walls. A long bar serves as the restaurant’s centerpiece, with a small area to its left for a two-person kitchen. California wines like Tablas Creek can be found on tap, and there are many European options by the glass. Well-prepared meats and cheeses are available, as is a selection of crostini --- go for the version with tomato and avocado. Also find tartines, flatbreads, salads and larger plates of moules frites, quiche Lorraine and braised short ribs. Breakfast offerings include a variety of pastries as well as La Colombe --- a surprisingly good alternative to Intelligentsia Coffee just down the road.
