I think it’s a very colorful and cool place to visit. Le Petit Zinc is a change of pace from heavier food, and the industrial look of most modern restaurants. Sorel’s artistry fills the restaurant with her visions of traveling the world.
Le Petit Zinc also plays an important role in Detroit is Different. Monthly I am hosting an event at the Le Petit Zinc, “Seven O’Clock Saturday Stories.” The event will be a conversation between myself and a guest welcoming an audience. Le Petit Zinc offers a great feel and look for this live event/podcast recording.
Seven O’Clock Saturday Stories premieres Saturday April 26 2014 at 7pm at Le Petit Zinc 1055 Trumbull Detroit MI 48216. The inaugural guest is Malik Yakini of the Detroit Food Security Network. This event is free and welcome for all guests.
