ZINK AMERICAN KITCHEN
RE-OPENS WITH A FRESH NEW MENU
Charlotte, NC Zink American Kitchen, located at 201 North Tryon Street in Uptown Charlotte, has reopened after several months of extensive kitchen renovations. Owned and operated by Harpers Restaurant Group, Zink is a long-time favorite of Uptown residents and workers, boasting an extensive menu and thriving late night bar and patio.
Steve Seitz, Harpers Director of Operations, said that while returning guests might not notice much difference in the restaurants interior, they are sure to appreciate the revamped menu designed by corporate Executive Chef Tom Condron and Zinks Chef de Cuisine Jon Fortes. These two talented chefs have created a fresh New American menu, taking all-time favorite regional dishes and adding their own inspiration. The result is a unique and delicious menu with something for everyone.
Seitz said some of the new items on the menu include a Make it Your Way Burger Bar at lunch and Sunday brunch, Sloppy Joe Sliders and a Grits Bar. At dinner, guests can choose from new items such as the Lobster Mac in Cheese, Niman Ranch Slow Cooked Pork, and the Carolina Mountain Trout.
Favorites like the Rock and Roll Sushi Bar, the late night bar specials and cool American drinks remain on the Zink menu and will be updated seasonally. In addition, Zink now presents a carafe of ice cold filtered water to each table.
In keeping with the American brand, Zink will use as many American made and American grown products as possible in their food preparation and in the restaurant operations. USA made uniforms are worn by the staff and the bar boasts a wide assortment of domestic wine and beer. With a great bar/late night/patio component and old American black and white movies and Warren Miller films in the bar Zink has an edgy quality that is truly American Cool.
