Zinc Bistro: The French Know How to Make a Burger

No matter how you view the French, you cannot deny they know their food. And there are few better places for French cuisine in the Valley than Zinc Bistro. There even is a miniature model of the Eiffel Tower in the middle of the quaint restaurant to make you feel like you're in the heart of Paris.

Though I am sure Zinc's duck confit is superb, I didn't venture to Kierland for traditional French cooking. No, I was attracted to Zinc for their burger.

During lunch, Zinc offers two types of burger: the bacon bleu or the truffled Gruyere. I opted for the unique truffled Gruyere, which along with Gruyere cheese is topped with tomatoes and arugula.
