Drinks - and more - at Zinc

One of the nice things that the Piedmont Council of the Arts does is host a gathering once a month at Zinc, 420 W. Main in Charlottesville, to get artists and the people who support the arts together to socialize. But this past Wednesday, we got to the party a little late, and it was already breaking up. So we stayed for dinner.

The night was just getting under way, and we were seated quickly. Service was personal and prompt. The mirrors along the wall at seat-back height gave an aura of action, while the high open ceilings with the ducting exposed, gave a casualness to the restaurant, in contrast to its high-end menu that had delightfully reasonable prices.

More to come...


  1. It is funny how there seems to be a restaurant named "Zinc" is almost every locale. Here in Phoenix, it is a dynamite French bistro with a killer croque madame, duck confit, French fries (of course) and chocolate souffle, among other things.

  2. I wonder if they are related... similar menu, to be sure.
