Zinc was a bistro located at 420 West Main Street in Charlottesville. Zinc opened in March of 2007 in a renovated garage space formerly occupied by the restaurants Station and then White Orchid. Its menu was modeled after a British gastropub with a French twist.[1] It is owned by Vu Nguyen,[2] who founded the restaurant with business partner Thomas Leroy. Nguyen bought out Leroy in mid-2010.[3]

The restaurant closed in 2013. [4]
