Congratulations to the Class of 2017! While local universities and colleges commence these next few weeks we can’t help but wonder, where has the time gone! It seems like yesterday we were welcoming new students and preparing for Parents Weekend. Sometimes summer can be a bit quieter in New Haven, but we’re looking forward to lots of exciting things at ZINC and Kitchen ZINC.

Patio Season! The Kitchen ZINC Patio is one of the best outdoor dining areas in town. We may be biased when we say this, but between the greenery that surrounds you, making you feel like you’re in a secret garden, to the beautiful lights to give you more of a romantic ambiance, there’s no better place to have a pie. The patio at Kitchen ZINC, located in the Temple Plaza Courtyard, is a fantastic place to hold an event too! We have quite a few private events coming up that will utilize this outdoor space and we’re even hosting a Wine Social there on Thursday, June 8th! You may be familiar with the Wine Socials that we’ve held over the year in the back room at ZINC. This time, we decided that we wanted feature rosé and there’s no better place to drink rosé than on a patio. Tickets for this are only $12 and you can purchase them at

We’re also thrilled to be hosting a dinner with Master Beekeeper, Bill Hesbach, and Broken Arrow Nursery. The Buzz About Bees, Flowers, and Food is a 4-course dinner on Thursday, June 1 at 6 pm. Enjoy our menu, inspired by and infused with honey, while learning about bees and flowers. Tickets are $85, all inclusive, and can be purchased at Seating is limited and there are only a few seats left, so reserve your spot before we’re sold out! 

Even though Summer is not officially here, June marks the month that we’ve been waiting for all year, the beginning of MARKET MENU!! Mark your calendar because Market Menu kicks off June 14. If you haven’t dined with us during the summer months and are unfamiliar about this, it's a three-course menu, designed around what our Chef-Owner, Denise Appel, finds at the City Seed Farmers Market each week. We love being able to walk down to the Farmer's Market to get ingredients for that nights dinner. 

We’re welcoming the warmer months and longer days with wide open arms! We hope you see you for dinner soon!
