Had a lovely supper at Zest on Bay St. in Rosebank on Friday night. They've been open for abotu a month, I think and this was our first visit. Eclectic mostly Mediterranean menu. My sister and I both had a beet, arugula and walnut salad to start. Our husbands had grilled squid and beet soup. Mains were an outstanding hanger steak served with fries, seared mahi mahi and a grilled chicken paillard with braised escarole and a gratin of potato. The service was elegant and polite and the wie list was nice too.
The wner proudly shoed us the outdoor area - I cannot waitt o eat there when it gets truly warm.
If you are on S.I. do check out this new gem - and if it's too crowded, you can pop across the street to Bayou!
