Get excited again at Le Zinc, the recently opened Cleveland Park gem introduces weekday lunch and weekend brunch.
Run by ever-charming restaurateur John Warner and chef David Ashwell (Marcel’s, Brasserie Beck), the neighborhood spot serves French-inspired dishes like mussels in white wine and garlic, steak frites, and fried goat cheese salad with tomato jam. Egg-focused staples appear on weekends.
Pay special attention to the dining room images of Bob Marley, Winston Churchill, and Warner’s grandmother, all shot by old-school street photographer Weegee. If you’re in a rush, grab a seat at the zinc-topped bar in back. Or, for a more leisurely lunch, park it at an umbrella-shaded outdoor table and sip a champagne cocktail.
Sure beats a juice box.
Le Zinc, 3714 Macomb Street NW, between Wisconsin Avenue and 37th Street (202-686-2015 or lezincdc.com).
