Description: Zinc is a lively three level bistro in Historic Nob Hill. Featuring an open, urban ambiance, Zinc offers casual fine dining on the main level and the loft mezzanine. For those looking for an exciting show, the exhibition bar offers seats right along the open kitchen. The menu focuses on high quality - yet affordable - American bistro fare and utilizes seasonal ingredients, many of which are sourced from local farmers. The Cellar Bar offers the same extensive wine list and premium cocktails as the upstairs, but in a more intimate lounge atmosphere with a lighter menu. The Cellar also showcases live music on Thursday and Saturday nights. Visit www.zincabq.com for menus, pictures, and upcoming events!

Relaxed bistro ambience, friendly staff, beautifully presented dishes, and a comprehensive wine list provide the ingredients for an informal business dinner, or for a leisurely meal with family and friends.
The service was very good although there was confusion at the start: two waiters came separately to welcome us, recite the specials, and take a drink order. They sorted themselves out and the rest of the evening went flawlessly.
Recommend the chicken paillard saltimbocca with local red chili peppers. The Coho salmon was delicate and moist but seemed a bit overwhelmed by the lemon-tarragon cream sauce poured on top.

Thank Anthony A

We arrived a bit early for our reservation so decided to check out the Happy Hour in the downstairs bar. It was pleasant for a basement bar, but our server had a hard time describing what the wine specials were - with excuses about them recently changing. Once we moved upstairs for dinner the service improved and was quite professional throughout. All of our meals were well prepared with generous portions. We enjoyed some delightful wines to accompany the food. Both the atmosphere and prices were upscale. We would certainly go back the next time we are in ABQ.

My husband and I lived in Albuquerque and had been to Zinc a couple of time many years ago. Decided to go back while visiting and we were happy that we did! Excellent apps, dinner and nice wine list. A must go when in Albuquerque!

Found Zinc wine bar and bistro while visiting Albuquerque for balloon festival. We opted to go down to the cellar bar, as opposed to being in the dining room upstairs as we wanted lite fare. The bartender, Adam, was extremely personable and served a great vodka martini with blue cheese olives. The crab cakes and honey mustard chicken sliders were quite tasty. Wish I had time to order more items, but if I am ever in Albuquerque again, I will be sure to stop here for a good bite to eat.
