A little of Paris in the rain…

February 2, 2010

My name is Kate and I am addicted to the Parmesan Truffle Fries at Zinc Bistro.

There! I said it.

So much so I was at Zinc Bistro twice last week to satisfy my cravings. Just writing this is making me think of them again. These fries have started to take over my life. I have even begun my own quest to fulfill these cravings at home, experimenting with different potatoes and truffle oil, even searching to make the perfect aioli to dip them in just to scratch that itch. It is a sweet, sweet agony…

Try as I might though, there is no substitute for the real thing. And there definitely is no replicating that feeling of escaping off to Paris that Zinc Bistro has emulated so perfectly. You feel chic just sitting in one of their red booths, surrounded by the tinned ceiling, hardwood floors and long zinc bar. I was saddened that the pouring rain (both times) made sitting in their little garden patio off limits, but the candle lit glow inside helped to warm us.

Now I did try other things as well, a wonderful goat cheese ravioli with oxtail on one visit, along with the farm vegetable salad (wonderfully mixed and dressed), and their lunch special of an open-faced flank steak sandwich with mushroom soup on the second visit. Both were wonderful choices, the perfect comfort foods to chase away those rainy day doldrums.

Oh, but those fries…
