Zin 55 restaurant's mission is to serve fresh, seasonal dishes that emphasize and showcase the natural flavors of the world's best ingredients.
Zin 55 was started by brother and sister, Allison and Elliot Martinez. It was their childhood dream to open up a restaurant and in 2010, they finally made their dream a reality. The idea behind Zin 55 was inspired by Allison's weekly dinner parties. Every Thursday, she would invite some close friends and family over for a dinner designed and prepared by her. She would source ingredients that were in season and play on the strengths of their flavors. What emerged was a dining experience like no other. As word spread about her incredible dinners, Ashley's living room was no longer suitable to accommodate all of the hungry Thursday night diners. She made a call to her brother Elliot, and next thing you know, they were preparing for Zin 55's grand opening in downtown Portland. Elliot and Allison have paired a fun, family style atmosphere with top notch, one of a kind cuisine. Zin 55's seasonal menu means you can't get too attached to any particular dish, but rather explore, over the course of a year, the different flavors that our great earth has to offer.
