While the wine selection is small, it is thoughtfully chosen and reasonably priced. In fact, on a subsequent visit, I would likely place myself at the short bar and simply drink my way into oblivion while enjoying side dishes. It could also be decent for a nice sandwich for lunch.
Overall, Zest is a decent addition to the neighborhood. If nothing else, it increases the options on Barrack's Row. Given the relative lack of new restaurants in the area, I'm happy that we have another place to eat in the neighborhood. Now if we could only get a sushi restaurant...
Pros: Awesome ambiance and staff
