I sneaked a peak at the normal menu and Zealous does offer a vegetarian tasting with wine. Entrees appear to range from $27 to $35 and salads are around $12. The wine selection is amazing.
The highlights of our 7 course dinner were the spinach-wrapped Asian pear, the pea and asparagus risotto, the deconstructed black forest case dessert.
The space is modern with brick walls and a glass enclosed wine cellar. There is slate tile on the floors.
I was surprised to find it not so busy on a normally crazy Saturday night. It is a shame for those who miss it, but lucky for the diner who finds this little gem. I would for sure take a client or loved one here for a special occasion. It is fabulous and the service was great too.
