French. Donning an antique zinc bar to support the moniker, Le Zinc is the kind of quaint French bistro that delivers an almost irresistible atmosphere in the dining room, out on the sidewalk patio or in the leaf- and vine-draped courtyard. The menu oscillates between traditional French fare and creative tasting plates showcasing Asian and North African influences. A small wine list represents the main wine regions of France.
Cafés of Paris are traditionally called “zincs” (pronounced ‘zang’), derived from the word for pewter bar counters, which became a trademark of French bistros. Similar to cafes born in Paris, Le Zinc, located in San Francisco’s quaint Noe Valley, exemplifies the standards that have pleased diners in France for years.
Living this tradition, Le Zinc offers a relaxed and unassuming environment attracting diners who might wish to linger over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, or to enjoy a hearty meal.
