The charming decor at Le Zinc gives the restaurant the feel of a genuine French bistro. Unfortunately, the food doesn't measure up to the same standard. I ordered an appetizer of escargots, which were easily the worst I have ever tasted. I couldn't quite identify what accompanied them, but whatever it was, it was slightly burnt. The main course (a beef bourgignon) was much better, with a hearty rich flavor. However, it was downhill again with the dessert. The creme brule just didn't have the luscious, creamy texture of a first rate custard. The service was attentive and friendly, but at 7:00 pm on a holiday weekend, the waiter only had two tables of dinner guests to occupy his time.
