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. It is owned by Vu Nguyen, who founded the restaurant with business partner Thomas Leroy. Nguyen bought out Leroy in mid-2010.
The restaurant closed in 2013.
