You can't beat tasty, elegant fare served in a beautiful setting, yet doesn't break the bank.
You're almost guaranteed to fall in love with Zin, a beautiful, chic restaurant in Delafield, Wisconsin. It serves elegant yet approachable fare at reasonable prices. The restaurant sits an old cream-color brick home in the attractive downtown and within easy walking distance of numerous boutique shops (just in case you want to shop afterward). A cozy bar greets you when you enter. You can dine there or sit in one of the two spacious eating areas -- one on the main level, the other upstairs. Al fresco dining is available too, weather permitting. The decor is chic yet soothing, pairing colorful glass accents with a Zen-like sage background. Zin serves lunch and dinner, with entrees running about $20. Think dishes like asparagus-crusted California sea bass, chicken picatta and wild mushroom ravioli. You can also nibble on salads, pizzettas and flatbreads, plus appetizers and dessert. Dishes are attractively presented; even the water is served with a decorative cucumber slice. And everything tastes good. Really good. Service is attentive without being suffocating. Not surprisingly, given the name, wine is prominently featured at Zin, with a wine list that includes about three dozen wines by the glass -- red, white, blush and sparkling. During lunch, there's a "5 at $5" special: five wines for $5 a glass. Beer and mixed drinks are also available. The coup de grace? The bathrooms are really cool, too.
