Look what Phil Zink is missing at the New Moon Cafe

Watermelon Sorbet at New Moon Cafe: "This one's for you Mr. Zink!"
Watermelon Sorbet: “Eat your heart out, Mr. Zink!”

We made a point of eating lunch at the New Moon Cafe in historic Nevada City  after reading a ridiculous letter in The Union from Phil Zink in the 95959 zip code albeit unincorporated Nevada County.

Zink’s logic went like this: “New Moon Café is my wife’s favorite, however, given the recent comments made by council member Senum and the lack of appropriate action or in this case inaction taken by the city council, we can no longer continue to support the city or its businesses as long as Ms. Senum is allowed to represent Nevada City in any official capacity.”

For the record, Zinc, the New Moon was doing a brisk business with locals, retirees, visitors and some “power lunchers” — all enjoying themselves. We are big fans of the New Moon, and enjoyed visiting with Peter, Buzz and Julian, among others. (Kudos to Julian, who is headed to UC Davis to major in math and computer science and enjoy life as a newlywed with Traci).

I enjoyed an Asian Duck salad (braised duck leg tossed with cabbage, carrots, cilantro and Hoisin dressing; topped with toasted sesame seeds), and Shannon had a Caesar salad and Carrot Cashew soup. We split the Watermelon Sorbet for dessert. It was a delightful time.

I figure Mr. Zink was eating a balogna (AKA baloney) sandwich on Cement Hill.
