Help - A drink at a pewter / zinc bar?

Exactly. If you look at the maker's mark on the bar at Gaslight, you will see is says "Nectoux", which is the maker, and if you look at their website you will see “The Zincs” Bistrot Style “1900 - 1930” The quality of our tin is in compliance food regulations EU and US

Help - A drink at a pewter / zinc bar?

Thanks for these tips...I will report back! Let me say...even though people call these bars "zinc" they are pewter. The french seem to have always used "le zinc" as a generic term for a metal bar (perhaps the early ones were) but now they are almost always pewter...which is 95% tin.

spiciest food -ever-?

Some quite hot and very tasty food to be found at Myers and Chang. The tiger tears are great,and can be spiced up w/ some more thai bird pepper per request (easiest to do if you are sitting at the bar) The Nasi Goreng is also a spicy number. The papaya salad is pretty hot as well.
