The guacamole at Zinc was one of the best I've experienced. They do several things differently, and each one makes a positive flavorful difference! A friend recommended the prickly pear margarita, and it did not disappoint (besides being a beautiful drink to look at). I...More

Excellent service! The waiter offered a bread selection to go with the Portobello Patty Melt -ask for the brioche. The pasta dish with pesto sauce had dark meat chicken pieces, which were tender, but my personal preference is for white meat. Most of the wine...More

Every time I come out here, I come to this place for the bread pudding (ask for vanilla ice cream). You will be satisfied!

Found Zinc’s on TripAdvisor and we were pleased with the result. Not being on the River Walk made eating outside a bit more private as well as quieter. Zinc’s menu offered a number of unusual items, and like others, I had the lamb burger, which...More

Our chefs have painstakingly created a menu of wine-friendly fare consisting of old world hors d'oeuvres and regionally inspired tapas. From baked Texas goat cheese with kalamata olives to fresh chocolate covered strawberries, the menu caters to the diversity of the food enthusiasts.
Charles Court, at the rear of Zinc, is a truly serene gathering place for a rare outdoor experience. The private, spacious courtyard makes for a quiet sanctuary from the clatter of downtown city streets and the Riverwalk.
