Zinc in New Haven, CT Restaurant Review


In one of my recent restaurant reviews I talked about the dive bar. There is a good feeling going into a place, dressing down and not worrying about what others might think. I enjoyed going into Viva Zapata and will go there again.

I also enjoy doing the exact opposite. Sometimes dressing up, using the right utensil and getting a fancy dish can make you feel like a hundred bucks. One of my favorite television shows of all time was HBO’s The Wire. In one episode a teacher took his inner-city students to nice respectable restaurant so they would feel like they were worth something. I think this is a positive.

I knew exactly what I was getting when I walked into Zinc Restaurant. Their address is 964 Chapel Street, New Haven CT 06510. Below is a picture of the outside of the building.



Besides giving a review, I want to give my readers a chance to learn more. It is always good to have more than one opinion when you want to dine out.

Zinc is my favorite restaurant in New Haven, CT. This is where I would go if I had to impress someone. I have found this restaurant to be fancy but not pretentious. I get the impression when I see Elizabeth and Shane that they are actually happy to see me and would like to see me come again.

One of the many things I like about coming here is their bread and dipping sauce. Below is a picture of it.



I ordered the Shrimp and Red Curry Panang for lunch. The description was “Udon Noodles/ Asian Vegetables + Shiitake Mushrooms “. Below is a picture of my meal.



I was honestly in a state of euphoria while I was eating. I wanted to light up a cigarette as it was that great. I have eaten here before but this was the best meal I have had there. It was a great feeling. I will be back.

Viva Zapata in New Haven, CT Restaurant Review


My second review is Viva Zapata in New Haven, CT. Their address is 161 Park Street; New Haven, CT 06511. It is listed as a Mexican Restaurant. Below is their picture outside.

As you read different reviews you will see the words “dive bar.” I looked up the definition and found the following at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dive_bar… “A dive bar is a type of bar or pub. Dive bars generally have a relaxed and informal atmosphere. They are often referred to by local residents as “neighborhood bars,” where people in the neighborhood gather to drink and socialize. Individual bars may be considered to be disreputable, sinister, or even a detriment to the community.”

This is not a place to get dressed up for. This is not a place to impress someone. It is not at all pretentious. If I was ever going to walk in a restaurant with sweatpants on this would be it. It is a very relaxed atmosphere.

Tammy, the bartender/waitress is very hospitable. It was a great afternoon as I found out she went to the same College that I went to, Southern Connecticut State University. It also happened to be the same college four of the customers went to so we had a great time talking about old bars, dorms and off campus parties.

Below is a picture of the chips and salsa that was brought to me. I have had it before and to be honest it was lacking with what I have had in the past. Maybe they were having a bad day but I still finished more of the chips.


Below is a picture of the Chicken Burrito I had. It was good and Tammy was kind enough to supply me with different hot sauces to put on the rice. I liked the Chipotle Sauce.



I had a Dos Equis with my burrito. Total bill was $10.83. I will be back.

Restaurant Review — The Cask Republic in New Haven, CT


I think Pinterest in a blogger’s dream. It is so much easier to share pictures as well as branding your reputation on the web. One thing I have wanted to do for a while is restaurant review. In this blog post I will do a review and show you how I am using Pinterest. Below are my steps.

1. I take a picture with my cell phone.
2. I send that picture to Pinterest on my cell phone.
3. I find the picture on Pinterest on my laptop, click on the picture and copy the embed code.
4. I write my blog post and use the embed code to show the picture.
5. I find the picture again on Pinterest on my laptop, click on “edit” and put my blog link in link.

Most people who repin my picture are unaware they can actually replace my link with theirs. Still it shows people are repinning my pictures and this increases my sphere of influence.

My first review is The Cask Republic in New Haven, CT. Their address is 179 Crown Street; New Haven, CT 06510. Below is their picture outside.

Below is a picture of my lunch. This is The Cask Republic Burger which is lettuce, tomato & red onion on a toasted English Muffin. It was well done which is the way I like it. The fries were also good, they didn’t put too much salt on them.



I am very picky about my burgers and The Cask Republic delivers. I have been here a couple times and both Timothy and Norm are excellent bartenders. This place would never be my hangout as it appears to be a younger crowd but it is worth checking out.
