Zinc Bistro a Vins

So, I went to Zinc Bistro a Vins (aka Zinc Bar and Restaurant), AGAIN...., Friday, February 13th. I took my mother and my niece for a pre-Valentine’s Dinner. We started with the beet salad (house salad) , lovely...and simple with red beets a very light vinegarette dressing topped with jullienned endive..., escargots “pastis” served in puff pastry- buttery almond sauce, wild mushroom and Morbier tart - Petite salad and a crock of la soupe à l'oignon (French Onion Soup). I’ve been here a couple times now and I always get the escargot and the French Onion Soup…excellent as always. My niece loved the mushroom tart as well as the FOS and the escargot (she’s 7 yrs old, has a very mature palate). For entrees, I had the Grilled Steak Frites, my mother had the whitefish and lobster risotto (special that evening), my niece ordered the petite size, rabbit stew and pasta. All dishes were wonderful! The steak was perfectly prepared (medium rare…closer to rare), the whitefish and lobster risotto, delicious…with generous chunks of lobster and perfectly prepared risotto, the fish was light and flavorful as well. The Rabbit, was so tender and prepared a Dijon style sauce and thick pasta (made fresh "paparadelle like"). The small size was large enough for a meal, I’m sure the entrée size would have been large enough for 2. For desert, we ordered the chocolate bread pudding (another favorite of mine) and the chocolate mousse...perfect closers to another excellent meal and wonderful dining experience. The service was excellent as always! Zinc Bistro a Vins is now one of my favorite dining destinations!
