Zinburger Appears to Be a Win

Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2007 at 10:07 AM

I was an invited guest to the pre-opening of Zinburger, a Fox Restaurant Concepts place that I predict will be another winner. Sam Fox consistently knows how to satisfy Tucson's dining public.

I wrote about Zinburger in my Noshing column this week, but that was before I ate there.

The dark merlot hue of Bistro Zin is long gone, and the new decor is light woods and big pictures of cows in meadows. Someone used a whimsical wand for the interior design. Then the woman's restroom is a hoot. When you sit down on the toilet (sorry for being so graphic), something funny is looking down at you. You'll have to experience this firsthand.

My friend Marianne Bernsen and I shared the Zinburger, which was awesome. Marianne didn't like the veggie burger as much as I did; she wanted it to be more crispy. The burgers are juicy, just like they should be. You can even order them with a fried egg on top. The sweet potato fries were crispy, but the fried zucchini fries rocked the house.

And the desserts--oy vey--a gourmet soda fountain experience. But maybe I'll stick to a robust zin instead.

One problem: Zinburger is LOUD. Everyone at my table was speaking very loudly. Sitting outside on the heated patio would be more conducive to conversation. You can sit at the bar and watch wide screen TVs.

Zinburger should be crowded next week when it opens. Enjoy!
