Zinc Restaurant Review

: Olivier De Saint Martin’s Zinc conjures up the flavors and aromas of authentic, homey French cuisine. Tucked away in Midtown Village, the eatery exudes a vibe that is pure Marais --- artsy, offbeat and very sexy. Charcuterie and cheeses; escargots prepared with anchovy, bacon, almonds and parsley; salmon in a whole-grain mustard sauce; and a whole duck served in two courses --- one taste and you’ll be a Francophile forever. The pressed duck is an unusual and special treat. The daily $32 three-course prix-fixe is a bargain.
