Zinc: Modern American Food (New Haven, CT)

Exploring New Haven's downtown, I walked down Chapel Street away from Church Street at just about eight in the evening. I supposed that with such proximity of both Yale University and downtown New Haven, I would be able to find somewhere interesting to go for dinner. I looked in the window at Zinc, subtitled Modern American Food. What I saw was dim lighting, dark décor, and elegant. After a quick look at the menu posted on the window, I walked in.

Scotch

Looking for a quiet drink and dinner after a long day at a conference in Chicago, I took a seat at the bar in a somewhat pricey chop house. The lady on the other side of the bar looked at me and said: Scotch.
