November came in with a bang! The leaves are falling and the cold air is blowing. 

We love this time of year because we get to help many people celebrate the holidays with their loved ones. Like ‘Friendsgiving’: a day near Thanksgiving to gather with the people that you have chosen to be your family.

The holidays can be a daunting time. There’s a lot of planning, organizing, prepping, the actual cooking part, hosting people in your home…the list can go on. And when you throw another big dinner into the mix, it can be overwhelming. 

Spend your Friendsgiving with us this year! There are many options to choose from at ZINC to keep you and your friends happy and your stress levels low.



Large Reservations

We have the beautiful ZINC table in the front of the restaurant, tucked away nicely so that you feel like you’re still a part of the buzz, but have some privacy to talk with everyone. We can accommodate larger groups throughout the dining room as well. 


Book the Back Room

Our back room can be reserved for the larger party that wants a bit more privacy. We can comfortably seat 30 people at multiple tables. Enjoy our three-course Pre-Fixed menu, which can be personalized for your group, ZINC Specialty Cocktails, wine, beer, soda. You will have your own private server that will go above and beyond to make your guests feel welcomed.


Chef’s Tasting Menu

If you and you’re friends love going out to eat, exploring new flavor options, and consider yourselves food connoisseurs, then you should book a Private Chefs Tasting Menu. One of the dining highlights at ZINC New Haven is this 5-course Chef’s Tasting Menu (with or without wine pairings) Chef Denise Appel will create an exciting dining experience made especially for you and your friends.

Tasting menus are offered Monday-Friday and are not available on Saturdays or holidays. The cost is $100 with wine pairings, $65 without wines, with all pricing plus sales tax and 20% service charge.


Personalized Wine Dinner

This is a fabulous way to ‘Wow’ your guests. Tell us what kind of wines you’d like to explore and our in-house Sommelier, Michael Egan, will select three to four wines while Chef Denise creates a customized a four-course menu that pairs perfectly with his selection. Michael will guide you through this dinner with history on the wineries, wine tasting notes, and sharing his in-depth knowledge about food and wine pairings. This is a truly unique opportunity which provides a deeper level of knowledge and enjoyment for you and your guests.
