Zinc Restaurant, New Haven

At lunch recently at Zinc, we requested to have each of our plates split for sharing. The kitchen was more than accommodating, presenting us with attractive half portions. (So realize the photos are only half an order.)

For our appetizer, we began with an order of house made feathery light ricotta gnocchi, tossed with fresh feta cheese, charred fresh corn, caramelized fennel, diced tomato and fresh basil ($13). Half a portion was perfect!

Next we shared seared salmon atop green salad with chick peas, paper thin marinated cucumbers, diced avocado and olives in a light tahini dressing ($14).   I’d return for — and recommend — both dishes.

The crisp Laurent Kraft Vouvray from the Loire Valley  ($10 per glass) was a nice match for both.

    I had dinner there last week – including the gnocchi, which were delicious…as was the whole meal. They do an excellant job there.

    I had those same gnocchi this summer. Absolutely lovely. Zinc is definitely a favorite New Haven eatery. Always warm and welcoming (I’m treated like an old friend) and the food is always wonderful. I also love that it’s run by women!
