Zinc Bistro(Scottsdale) bad experience?

ziggylu | Apr 7, 2008 05:12 PM

Anyone been here lately?

We found ourselves up in this part of world today with a few hours to kill while our car was being serviced so we had the dealer drop us off at Kierland and decided we'd stop in for lunch.

Zinc has always been one of our favorite spots and with the exception of a croque monsieur I ordered at lunch last year we've only had great experiences(and even that sandwich wasn't poorly prepared I just didn't care for it).

Last time we were up there was December and everything was fine.

Everything today was a disaster. The food(dry duck confit, terrible terrible terrible overdressed soggy crab salad), the service(practically nonexistant and rude when we were lucky enough to get a flyby by the server).

Just wondering if this was a one off experience or if it's representative of changes in the kitchen and the front of house(the service particularly was horrible today). We're reluctant to ever give them another try after this.

It's always disappointing to have a poor dining experience, at an old favorite it's really a bummer.
