Two totally different experiences: big servings of mediocre food at RF; tiny portions of rich, exquisite things at ZB.

RF: we liked the fried avocado app and the rack of lamb, but the Dr. Pepper short ribs were surprisingly flavorless, the queso dip was okay but paired with stale chips, and the famous green chile pork was brown/gray, dry, and bland. We left enough food on the table to be hungry enough for dessert, but the sad little berry pie didn’t quite cut it.

Everything at Zinc Bistro was outstanding: service, atmosphere, food (great mussels, fantastic poultry dishes, crab-and-mushroom crepes, soufflés, etc.)
