A Little French Inspiration


It's been about a week ago already but before Christmas I did a little shopping with my friend Glenda in north Scottsdale at a place called Kierlin Commons.  It's a wonderful little shopping area but, I think my favorite place there is this restaurant.  It's called Zinc Bistro.  If you read my travel blog you might remember that my favorite restaurant in Chicago when I worked there was a place called Bistro Zinc and this place brings back all those memories.  It has a similar atmosphere and a decidedly French menu.


I had the steak frites for lunch and it was delicious!


Just like Bistro Zinc in Chicago, Zinc Bistro has the traditional zinc bar where you can order up a drink, or maybe a glass of sparkling champagne.   I can come here and feel close to both Chicago and Paris all in one visit.

How fab, there must be some connection oui! One of life's little pleasures is having a meal with a friend after a successful shopping expedition :) All the very best for 2016 Sharon, happy new year.

Very cool place. I would love it. I kinda figured there was something French about it what with that Eiffel Tower replica! :) Excellent photos, too!

Memories are wonderful when they recall pleasant experiences and events. Looks like you hit the jackpot with this one. Come visit me at my Mazatlán blog during January: http://kate-mazatlanmexico.blogspot.mx

Could be on a Parisian back street but for the cowboy hat.
