I went to Zen for my B-day yesterday. Haven't been there before but heard good things about it. It was my one night out without the kids and I by-passed several places I love in Northampton and are old reliables to explore this new restaurant as it's been a while since I went to a new place... I was impressed with the menu and the atmosphere was okay until a loud couple sat next to my wife and I and I realized the tables are only a foot apart which I'm not a fan of ( when we got there it was near empty so not a problem but 20 minutes later it started to fill up). Not so impressed with my entrees though.
