Le Petit Zinc is located in Detroit's Corktown neighborhood. Le Petit Zinc is French slang for a local bar. Oftentimes in France, neighborhood bars cover bar tops in zinc metal. Over time wear and tear on the metal gives the bar top unique texture, as each patron literally leaves their mark.
Our Petit Zinc offers comfortable, classic French dining; we use all organic flour and local produce when possible, and vegan crepe batter is available upon request. In season, join us in our garden seating area for an experience that harkens back to a French countryside local haunt. We welcome you to bring yourself, your family and your friends to leave your mark!
