The pretty lady you see above is Zinnia, the new inhabitant of the space that once hosted the likes of Scott Howard and the Cypress Club. It's the brainchild of Sean O'Brien (and his wife Patricia), and in many ways, is the continuation of the what O'Brien did so well at Myth. Many of the classics remain on the menu, including the gnocchi and sweetbreads (we enjoyed the burger), and the beloved Jackie Patterson presides over the bar. The interior got a facelift from Michael Guthrie and by nearly all accounts, looks the part too. Further reading on Zinnia can be had in Eater Archives, and at the Chron, Chowhound and Zagat.
