Le Petit Zinc is moving to Midtown

Parisian Cafe Le Petit Zinc will reopen in the former Dangerously Delicious Pies space in Midtown in mid-January.

Owner Karima Sorrel shut down her Corktown space in September after a dispute with the building's landlord, who is also Sorel's mother. Since then, she has been on the hunt for a new home and finding new inspiration.

“'I've been in Paris the last two months finding all kinds of inspiration for the next chapter of LPZ and we felt that this location is the perfect spot for us to do so," Sorel said in a press release.

The restaurant will reopen at 70 W. Alexandrine in the Strathmore Apartments building.
