Meet Friends for Happy Hour at Zen Bistro & Wine Bar

You can probably guess from its name that Zen Bistro & Wine Bar specializes in fine wines. What you might not know is that you can snag a glass of the top-shelf vino for just $5 during happy hour, which runs every weekday from 5 to 7 p.m. Savor a glass of the house merlot or chardonnay, enjoy a glass of sangria, or sip on a mojito at happy hour.

Complement your chosen beverage with one of the happy hour bites, like the Thai chili wings and the crispy chicken pot stickers. If you stop by on a Wednesday, you might be tempted to hang around after happy hour because live music begins at 7:30 p.m. This presents the perfect opportunity to sample something from the larger dinner menu. Try a sushi roll like the White Dragon, which the chef stuffs with shrimp, cream cheese, cucumber, and crunch, plus toro and Japanese mayo on top. You can also enjoy an entree such as the braised lemongrass lamb chops or the tonkotsu ramen bowl.
