Sir Terence Conran is to open his third Zinc Bar & Grill chain, this time in Islington, north London.

There are already Zincs in London's

West End and Manchester's Corn Exchange. New restaurants are planned for Birmingham and Edinburgh.

They are described as a "contempory development of the traditional zinc-bars of France ... casual places where people can drop in and enjoy anything from drinks in the bar with great music, a snack, steak-frites or even a three-course meal".
